❤️WHY WE LOVE THIS RECIPE

My family loves oatmeal cream pies! Most of you know that our Mom owned a country store when we were kids. This meant we had access to oatmeal cream pies 24/7. As a kid, I just couldn’t get enough. However…homemade is always better! These cream sandwiches are sooo good and be warned..completely addictive. My husband actually is the one that makes these cookies and we all get very excited when we see him in the kitchen. These little sandwiches are delicious!

🍽️HOW TO MAKE

These incredible oatmeal cream pies take a little effort. It’sn’t the quickest process, but the end result is worth it!

Step 1Preheat oven to 350. In a large bowl cream together butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar until light and fluffy, this will take 2-3 minutes. 

Step 2Next, add eggs and vanilla and mix until combined. In another bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, allspice, ginger, and salt. Add the dry mixture to the wet ingredients, mixing until just combined. Add in oats and mix them all together. 

Step 3Drop dough onto cookie sheets. Dough will spread out so keep cookies 2-3 inches apart. Bake for 13-15 minutes or until golden brown.  Once cookies have cooled completely, prepare the cream filling.
