When we were kids my mom never let us have Little Debbies. At the time, I thought that she was just punishing us, but as it turns out, she was right to not buy them for us. They are not very good for you, chemicals and such, but oh do they taste delicious. I used to have some serious jealousy issues over the kids at the lunch table that would pull a Little Debbie Oatmeal Cream Pie out of their lunchbox.

Now that I am a grown up, I realize that a homemade version of a treat is thousand times better than the one that comes from the package. And in this case, this oatmeal cream pie does not disappoint. A soft and chewy oatmeal cookie sandwiching a fluffy marshmallow filling. Who wouldn’t want to find this treat in their lunchbox?

On a side note, I am over at The Creative Mama today sharing a story that was hard for me to write. This week we are sharing our stories about our struggles with postpartum depression. I will be sharing two very different stories this week. If you or anyone you know had struggled with PPD, send them our way and let them know that they are not alone.

  1. I love OCPies! I could take down a half box of Little Debbie’s after basketball practice growing up, and my mom let me…seriously, the memories of inhaling those things as fast as I could unwrap the plastic are so vibrant. Your recipe looks PERFECT! A must-try for me!

    • bakedbree says:

      Thank you Averie. A box never lasted more than afternoon at our house. I think that is why she never bought them for us!

  2. These look great and much better than the “real” thing! ;)

  3. [...] there you have an oatmeal cream pie.Google Recipe View Microformatting by ZipList Recipe Plugin1.4http://bakedbree.com/oatmeal-cream-pies [...]

  4. I’m such a sucker for oatmeal cookies….and stick some frosting in between…you won’t be able to keep me away from them! ;-) I’m heading over to read your post on Creative Mama. You’re so brave to share your story.

  5. Jessica says:

    My husband just begged me to make these! yum! Also do you know an approx yield. I know it depends on how big the scoop is. I was just curious :)

    P.s. I had PPD withbmy first. So awful. I feel your pain. (mine lasted almost nine months)

  6. [...] And of course, you can’t talk about creamy recipes without at least one dessert, so I’m thinking oatmeal cream pies are the perfect ending to this post. Homemade oatmeal cookies are good enough on their own, but when they’re layered with a filling of butter, sugar and marshmallow creme? That’s a creamy dessert worth dreaming of! (Baked Bree) [...]

  7. These look like comfort stuffed into a cookie! I’ve never had a Little Debbie so I suppose I never knew what I was missing. These look divine!

  8. Cassie says:

    I think I might go home today and make these. They bring back lots of childhood memories. Gorgeous!

  9. anita says:

    These look so dangerous!!! Yumm-O!

  10. Kerry says:

    these are exactly what im craving right now!!

  11. I love oatmeal creme pies but so rarely indulge… You’ve got me craving them again though, that’s for sure! These look fantastic, Bree. Thanks for sharing.

  12. kim says:

    i hope you get this post by tonight! i know i am gambling but…i would like to make the cookies
    tonight and the filling in the morning. is this a bad idea? if i do it all tonight (serving them tomorrow) could i just put them on a plate and cover with foil? or should i make the filling tomorrow morning? thanks!

    • bakedbree says:

      Not a bad idea at all. Just make sure that the cookies are in airtight container. I think that either way is fine, but I think that these taste better the day that they are made, so I would make the cookies tonight and the filling tomorrow.

      • Kim says:

        these were AWESOME! the oatmeal cookie was amazing. i followed the recipe exactly. everyone loved the filling. my only issue was powdered sugar…for some reason i just don’t like the taste of strong powdered sugar in icing-type things. so, i lowered it to like 2 cups. next time, do you think i could even get away with 1 1/2 cups? these were fantastic. everyone went crazy for them. i am only asking about the filling for ME. :) i can’t wait to make these again. they are so easy!

        • bakedbree says:

          Sure, why not? It is all about how you want something to turn out. That is the beauty of cooking yourself, you can make whatever changes you would like.

  13. ErinCroutons says:

    Wow, these look so delectable! I love to make a dish when I have almost all of the ingredients already in my house. :) Awesome.

  14. These are so cute! Remind me so much of childhood! Thanks for sharing!

  15. Brandon says:

    Your cream pies look great! A lot of my friends don’t care for oatmeal cookies, but I love them!

  16. Dana says:

    Little Debbie Oatmeal Creme Pies were always my favorite too – I did a homemade version myself and they were sooo good, and I think yours look even better!

  17. I never eat packaged foods like little debbie cakes or hostess cakes or cookies etc.. I would much rather eat a cookie or cake that I made myself because I know the ingredients and all that stuff. I think the only packaged foods I eat are like cereals, granola bars, and crackers. You know “healthy” stuff ;) Haha

    These look absolutely delicious, and the cookies look puffier than the oatmeal cream pies from Little Debbie, which is always a big plu! <3

    • bakedbree says:

      Thanks Becca! I can also rationalize that I can eat more of a homemade treat because they are better for me. Thats what I tell myself anyway. :)

  18. Valerie says:

    My parent’s idea of “sweet treats” was usually yogurt and fruit (and a small square of dark chocolate..if I was lucky). Like you, I now realize the wisdom behind what I thought was torture at the time. And homemade versions are always 100 times better than anything found in a box!

    These look fantastic! :D

  19. Mimi says:

    I have GOT to try these soon. The other teachers on my team would love me forever if I walked into a meeting with a tray full of these little beauties….

  20. Pat says:

    Hmmmmm, good! You know, when my kids were small I did buy Little Debbie’s…I think 2-3 boxes of different flavors. Once I was wise enough to know what was in them, no more. I think my kids and the grands will love these! Thanks for sharing ~

    Pat

  21. I will be dreaming of these all night now! These are fabulous! I know a batch of these will be baking in my oven very soon! Delicious! :)

  22. Zinedine says:

    When I show receipt to my friend she’s always like. “That’s an hour on a bicycle” :-) Looks delicious!

  23. Angela says:

    These look delish! I was wondering…I have marshmallows but no marshmallow creme. Is there a way to substitute???

    Little Debbie Who? Oh girl..you did it now! These look divine! I wish I wasn’t on a diet…but I might have to whip these up for the kids…I know my youngest would love making these with me!

  26. Sarah says:

    Just finished making these. Whoa!!! They are awesome. I have quite a bit of leftover filling, and I’m trying to think of what else I can do with it so I’ll stop eating it straight out of the bowl. I’ll make these again but double the cookie recipe so I can make more cookies to give away! Thank you for the recipe.

  27. AC says:

    There is an AWESOME bakery in my husband’s hometown that makes amazing oatmeal creme pies and I have since been on the hunt for a similar recipe!! Can’t wait to try :)

    Quick question though–this might sound dumb but I want to get it right–you mention a 2 sticks of butter total, but the picture only shows two half sticks of butter…which should we use?

  28. Beth says:

    These were fantastic. Living in China makes marshmallow creme hard to come by, so I used this frosting recipe instead. . .A-Mazing!

  29. Kim says:

    A friend of mine fell last week and broke her leg in three places. Needless to say she will be off her feet for awhile. ( not a easy thing with 3 little ones at home) I wanted to help her out and make some meals that only need to be heated up (by Hubby). But I also thought she needed a really good treat. Holy Cow do these fit the bill! They are so good! I made a batch for her family and a second for my boys.

    I made them…and we love them! My cookies didn’t come out flat…they were still in the ball shape. Any ideas on what happened?

  33. [...] Oh my! Check out these oatmeal cream pies! These look like a much better version of the Little Debbie version we used to pick up as an after school, before soccer practice snack. (Only when you’re 15…) I love the moist, not too sweet oatmeal cookies and the creamy sweet frosting sandwiched between. It looks like it may rain this weekend, a perfect time to try this recipe out! [...]

  34. Oatmeal Cream Pies always put a smile on my face. Thank you for the recipe!

    Quick question…do you use quick oats or rolled old fashioned oats? Going to make these tomorrow!
