I love oatmeal cream pies! When I was a kid, my dad would always get them. I did not really like them as a kid, but when I entered my teenage years, my love for them began to grow. Now, if there is a box within close range, I have to check myself closely. If left alone, the box disappears. The kids ask where they are and I say I have no idea what they are talking about. So to make things easier, I do not buy them.
However, I did have a craving for them the other day, so I decided to experiment. The results were truly delicious and I was so excited about them, that I thought I would share the recipe.
Keep in mind, they are the sweetest most delectable treats, and one small one will last you through the night. I have a huge sweet tooth, and all it took was a small cream pie to satisfy me.
Oh, they are so good!
Here is the recipe:
Suzy’s Oatmeal Cream Pies
2 cups flour
1 cup white sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 3/4 cup oatmeal
1/4 cup milk
4-5 tablespoons honey
2 teaspoons cinnamon
and here is the ultimate kicker: 1 cup butter cream frosting! Which is 2 cups butter, 1 package powdered sugar and 5-6 tablespoons of milk. Reserve one cup for the cookie batter and the rest for the cream filling for the pies!
Combine all the ingredients. Butter and flour an 11×9 pan and place batter in the pan like brownies. In fact the consistency is a lot like brownies. Cook for 40 min at 350. Let cool completely!!!! Cut into squares and fill with butter cream.
