The other day I was grocery shopping with the Hubs when I asked him if there was anything else he needed or wanted and he replied “yum, oatmeal cream pies, but NO I do not need them!” Inspiration struck, how wonderful would homemade oatmeal cream pies be!! And yes not the best for you but better than store-bought, at least I know what ingredients I am using!!
Fast forward a few hours and I was in the kitchen making my very own homemade oatmeal cream pies and they are so very yummy and so much better than anything store bought!!
This is a fairly easy recipe just a really yummy oatmeal cookie and homemade whipped cream! Here is the recipe, a downloadable, printer-friendly version in at the bottom!
