This recipe for Oatmeal Cream Pies from Joanna Gaines 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!

Here are a few links to some of my favorite kitchen tools! You get a car, YOu get a car, YOU ALL GET A CAR…in my best Oprah voice
These Rösle Silicone Tongs are a little pricey but they will last you the rest of your life and are the softest in your hand. This is important for someone like m that cooks so much. It reduces strain, I have 4 sets in my kitchen!
These are my FAVE Nordic Ware Sheet Pans, every kitchen should have at least 2 sets of these! I think I have at least 4 of each of these.
This is my favorite pressure cooker, the Fagor is the same concept as the “Instant Pot” but easier to use in my opinion, if you don’t have one you NEED one, it will be your best friend in the kitchen!
A sharp knife is the most important tool in the kitchen, these Japanese steel “Shun” knives are my favorite! And this is a great starter set to build on. Once you try them you will be in love so use this as a foundation you can build on for years to come.
This Scanpan 11″ skillet is just the right size for almost anything you will need to cook and my best friend and a real workhorse in my kitchen, it’s also a great deal at $99. Scanpan is the best in the world for healthy cooking. It is coated with a proprietary ceramic-titanium coating that is durable while allowing you to use fewer fats and oils when cooking. It is a coating only they use. I could talk all day about my love for these pans, message me if you want more info. Here are some other sizes that are available if you are looking to outfit your kitchen with some new goodies. 8″ & 10″ Skillet set or 8″ Skillet, I still need this one for my kitchen Also, I don’t really know how to cook small so the 12.5″ is my other fave!
This giant vat of olive oil is my favorite, I decant it into a smaller bottle for my counter. Or put this spigot on top of a wine bottle!
My favorite baking dish that is so easy to clean even burnt on cheese slides right off!
This Tovolo jar scraper has to be my single favorite kitchen tool, it is definitely the most used tool in my kitchen. If you are NOT a gadget person, this is the only necessity I say is a MUST beyond the wooden spoon.
A great wood spoon is essential, this Olive Wood one is my favorite, I have more than I can count. But can you really ever have too many?
A food scale can be a very important tool in your kitchen, this one is the one I use every day!
