This recipe for Oatmeal Cream Pies from Joanna Gaines Magnolia Table Cookbook Vol. 2 will have you transported right back to childhood at first bite! Summers outside or on a picnic, this is the packable dessert that you will be dreaming of again and again.
The recipe is a very straight forward oatmeal cookie recipe that makes my heart very happy because I don't mind an oatmeal cookie, but I despise raisins! Even if you use the recipe as a PLAIN cookie and don't sandwich them, you would be super happy! I may even prefer this. 😬
As I mentioned above, these Oatmeal Cream Pies take you right back to when you were a kid, minus all the preservatives. On top of being a sinche to make, so there really is no excuse for store bought ever again if you ask me! You know I am all about the homemade anyway.
The family really loved them too, the only thing I have to really say about them is that there might have been a little too much filling. For me anyway. I have always been a bit of a cake with no frosting person.
I dispersed all the frosting equally over the cookies before sandwiching them together, and I personally found it a little heavy! This may be because my cookies didn't flatten out as much as the ones in the book photo did so the ratio to cream filling may be different.
But if this happened for me it happened for others too.
I might cut the filling recipe in half next time I make these. It was a little much for me, it may also be that I just really loved the cookie by itself too!
They are a great base cookie that would also stand up on their own!
Overall, a great recipe that I am glad to have and I think will become a new classic in my house.
Until next time, Happy Cooking!

Hey Pam. This is a recipe review, the recipe is in Joanna Gaines Magnolia Table Cookbook Vol. 2. Thanks for being here!
This is an Excellent recipe and easy to follow. I made them watching the episode I taped which helped. Thank you Joanna. Everyone remembers these childhood cookies and they were my favorite! I used GF flour and they tasted yummy. My granddaughters Loved them. Thank you!
They really are great, aren't they!
Not sure you'll see this but I made these a while back and they spread like wild fire. I consider myself to be pretty experienced in baking so I have zero clue what happened. It's been a while, so I'm gonna give it a try again! Wish me luck.
Maybe your mixture got too warm. Mine on the other hand didn't spread all that much...
I watched Jo make these on her show. She smashed them or pressed on them a little before she put them in the oven. I adore her and her show. I binge watch.
Can these be frozen?
Absolutely! I would freeze them on a sheet pan until firm, then place them in a zip top bag for storage.
