Every once in a while I get nostalgic and like to eat an oatmeal cream pie – you know, the ones that come in the little wrappers? I loved eating the little packaged snack cakes and cookies as a kid and want to find ways to make them at home without all of the extra additives and preservatives. So I’m today I’m beginning a “Little Debbie Series” where I will re-create these little treats for the home cook. My kids are thrilled with the idea as you can imagine, and I think my neighbors are going to like it too since they are the recipients of the sweets I bake.
These pies are moist, chewy, and filled with a decadent buttercream – sweet, buttery, and melt-in-your-mouth perfect. Put one in a little package, and take it to work or stick it in your child’s lunchbox without an ounce of guilt. Now that’s my idea of a mid-day treat.
