Oatmeal Creme Pies
These oatmeal creme pies will take you back to the days of school and lunch boxes
I had a hard craving for oatmeal creme pies last week. You know the Little Debbie ones that you’d get in your lunchbox? I swear to you I could eat 3-4 of them. It was kind of disgusting but I was a kid, I didn’t have a care in the world. I knew I had to make these.
But before I get to how delicious they were, let’s talk about how I literally almost lost an eye or ruined my cornea making these!
I was getting ready to scoop the cookie dough batter onto my prepared baking sheets. I went to grab the cookie dough scoop out of the drawer and at this point I was looking at the back of the scoop and when I went to squeeze the handles, it didn’t budge. I squeezed harder and it didn’t budge either. So then I flipped over the scoop so the front was facing me and I squeezed even harder then a hardened piece of sugar or something flew extremely fast in my direction and hit me right between my eyebrows. Seriously, if it had gone any other way, it would’ve hit me directly in one of my eyes and I bet you I would’ve had some sort of eye injury because whatever that hardened piece was that hit me right between my eyebrows, it HURT. A LOT. I kind of freaked out. I know, I sound so dumb and making this all traumatic but I really was scared! I couldn’t stop thinking if that had gone into my eye!
Moral of the story? Make sure your cookie dough scoop is super clean and if you can’t squeeze the handles, don’t flip it over and stare at it & wonder why the handles are stuck while squeezing the handles.
Besides that scary incident, these almost-eye-destroying cookies are awesome. I think they taste exactly like the Little Debbie’s oatmeal cream pies. They’re even better the next day too. The cookies aren’t hard like regular cookies. They’re really soft in the middle and the creme in the middle is so perfect. It’s a pretty big “sandwich” but they definitely hit the spot and cured the craving.
Aren’t you glad I survived the cookie dough scoop incident to be able to type this up to tell you & share with you this delicious recipe? :)
