This oatmeal cream pies
Think of these as a Little Debbie copycat. You won’t be able to tell the difference.
This recipe calls for only brown sugar and a touch of molasses. The brown sugar gives the cookie a melt in your mouth texture.
The cream filling is so much better than the buttercream fillings you see in most cream-filled sandwich cookies. This recipe contains marshmallow fluff and it’s delicious!
Bake and fill
Be extra careful to not over bake the cookies. Pull them out of the oven right at the moment that the edges are set.
The center will look as if they are not done. That’s okay. The cookies will continue to cook as you let them rest on the pan. This will ensure the softest texture possible.
The crème filling is much better than those that mimic frosting. It contains marshmallow fluff! That alone should tell you how delicious it is.
Spread the filling over the underside of one cookie and sandwich the second cookie over the top.
