Homemade Oatmeal Cream Pies

Better than childhood memories of the Little Debbie variety, these homemade oatmeal cream pies are fantastic. Soft oatmeal cookies with a tasty creamy filling, they are irresistible!

Two homemade oatmeal cream pies stacked on each other.

These homemade oatmeal cream pies* are quite possibly the cookie you didn’t know you needed in your life…but trust me, you do. They are so innocently delicious, each time I take them somewhere, I’m honestly surprised at how people go so crazy over them! I’ve had more requests for this recipe in the last few months than I have for any other dessert I’ve taken to church and friend get togethers lately. 

*And no, I have no idea why they are called “pies” instead of “cookies” but we’ll go with it.

To be honest, they don’t taste a whole lot like the store bought version (at least from what I remember from my childhood), which is why I’m not calling them a copycat or knockoff recipe. The cookies are chewy and soft. And sandwiched with the luxuriously creamy vanilla frosting, they have an identity entirely their own.
