What are oatmeal creme pies

Oatmeal creme pies are easily my favorite of the Little Debbie franchise. In fact, they were the first snack Little Debbie started with and are so popular because they are so darn delicious. These sandwich cookies consist of two super soft and chewy sandwich cookies layered together with a sweet creme layer. They’re a classic for a reason!

Tricks for the best copy cat oatmeal creme pies

  • UNDER BAKE YOUR COOKIES: I’m sorry for raising my voice, but this is of utmost importance. Oatmeal creme pies are meant to be super soft and chewy, so make sure you under bake the cookies. The cookies will continue to cook as they cool, so you’ll want to take them out when they’re still a bit raw in the middle.
  • Make sure your ingredients are at room temperature: It’s so important for both the cookie dough and the creme filling that your butter is at room temperature. This will ensure your filling is fluffy and light and your cookie incorporates together correctly.
  • Store them in an airtight container or ziploc bag: There are few things worse than a stale cookie. For best results, we recommend you store these in an airtight container or ziploc bag to keep them super fresh. The homemade oatmeal creme pies will keep for up to 7 days!

Happy baking!

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon molasses
  • 1 egg, room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup old fashioned oats
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

for the vanilla creme filling

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1/4 cup shortening
  • 4 cups powdered sugar
  • 2  – 3 Tablespoons heavy cream
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. In a stand mixer fit the paddle attachment, combine the butter, brown sugar, and molasses. Beat until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes.
  3. Use a rubber spatula to scrape the sides of the bowl and add the egg and the vanilla extract. Mix well.
  4. In a separate bowl stir together the flour, oats, baking soda, and salt.
  5. Add the dry ingredients to the wet and mix until just combined.
  6. Use 1 Tablespoon measure of a .5 ounce cookie scoop to scoop the dough out onto your cookie sheet 2 inches apart.
  7. Bake 10 minutes or until the edges of the cookies are set and the centers have puffed up but are still underdone. Transfer the cookies to a wire rack. Allow the cookies to cool completely.
  8. While the cookies cool, make the creme filling. Combine all of the ingredients in a stand mixer fit with the whisk attachment and beat on slow, gradually increasing to high until light and fluffy. Transfer to a piping bag fit with a round tip.
  9. Pipe the creme filling onto the backside of one of the cookies and sandwich together with another cookie.
  10. Store in an airtight container or ziploc bag for up to 7 days! Enjoy!

  1. I just finished making this recipe. The ONLY thing different was I added a handful of cocoa butter chips (because they were there). This recipe gets all five stars. It was easy to create, the cookies do not taste too sweet nor does the frosting. My oven cooked them too long the first batch, but we always make a small trial batch before going full force. I doubled the recipe and will be saving this one in my recipe box. I’ve never heard of Broma bakery, but will be back to this website!

  2. These looks absolutely delicious and I can’t wait to make them with my kids!! Just wondering if there is a substitute I can use for the shortening?

  3. I have been unable to find a great cream filling recipe. I know this one will be perfect because Broma has the best recipes. Thank you for the yummy oatmeal cookie recipe with the great cream filling! Yes, Little Debbie anything is my favorite lunch box treat😊

    • Oh my goodness that is a hilarious typo on my part! It should be old fashioned oats. Use fresh ones please 🙂 So sorry about that!
