One of my all time favorite emotions is nostalgia. I made these Oatmeal Creme Pies because I crave the Little Debbie ones + wanted to make them at home without all of the additives/preservatives. They turned out well!
The recipe I'm sharing here is JUST for the cookies! I used AdLib Mom's homemade marshmallow fluff recipe for the filling.
Here is a link for you!
It's light, fluffy and delish. If you're trying to stick to something that will taste similar to the boxed snack, I'd go more for a vanilla buttermilk frosting.
The cookies are so delicious that you could totally eat them on their own. (Guilty for this as they came out of the oven...) Enjoy!
