Oatmeal Cream Pies are a quintessential Little Debbie cookie featuring 2 soft oatmeal cookies sandwiched with a sweet, creamy marshmallow filling. Easily make them at home using this simple recipe!
Store oatmeal cream pies in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 4 days. I like them best on day 2 after the flavors have intensified and the filling starts to soften the oatmeal cookies.
When stored properly, these cream pies should last up to 4 days.
To freeze oatmeal cream pies, wrap each pie individually in plastic wrap, place in an airtight bag or container, and freeze for up to 3 months. Remove from the freezer and thaw before serving.
If you love this childhood sweet treat, whip up a batch at home!
- For perfect oatmeal cookies, try not to overmix the wet and dry ingredients.
- Keep an eye on the cookies as they bake. When the edges are lightly golden brown, they’re done!
- When removing the cookies from the oven, tap the baking sheet at least 3 times on the counter to flatten the cookies.
- Mix it up and add sprinkles or chocolate chips to the filling for a little something extra!
Making sandwich cookies has never been easier. Anyone can prepare this simple recipe!
What kind of oats are best for oatmeal cream pies?
For best results, use quick-cook oats. If you don’t have quick-cook oats, pulse old-fashioned oats a couple of times in a blender to break them down. Measure out 2 ½ cups of these oats and continue with the recipe.
Is there a substitute for marshmallow fluff in the filling?
Marshmallow fluff is a must-use in this filling recipe. Instead of using the filling recipe included below, use a buttercream frosting or hazelnut spread between the cookies. Get as creative as you’d like!
Can I make a chocolate cream filling?
Yes! Add 1 tablespoon of unsweetened cocoa powder to the filling mixture.
