What’s In Homemade Oatmeal Cream Pies?

  • Butter- Always buy unsalted butter for baking, then add salt as needed. This is a quality-control technique to produce better baked goods.
  • Milk
  • Molasses
  • Vanilla– To add that little extra something.
  • Sugar- Sweeten things up.
  • Light Brown Sugar- Brown sugar is soft and fluffy and needs to be packed into the measuring cups for proper portioning. Always pack brown sugar when measuring, unless the recipe states otherwise.
  • All Purpose Flour- When in doubt, always go with “all purpose” flour.
  • Old-Fashioned Oats- The kind of oats that is best for cookies. Do not use quick oats.
  • Baking Soda
  • Cinnamon– the star of the show.
  • Nutmeg
  • Salt– All baked goods taste better with a touch of salt.

How Oatmeal Creme Pies Are Made

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit. Prep a cookie sheet with parchment paper. In a large bowl combine the wet ingredients: melted butter, milk, molasses, vanilla extract and both sugars. Whisk until thoroughly combined. Add the dry ingredients: flour, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt and old-fashioned oats on top of the wet mixture. Mix together until combined. 

Take the prepared baking sheet and with a large cookie scoop add the cookie batter onto the baking sheet. Place in the oven and bake for 10-12 minutes. 

While that is baking, in a medium bowl combine the dairy free cream cheese and butter. Use a whisk or hand mixer to blend in the powdered sugar until a thick frosting has formed. Add the vanilla and 1 to 2 tablespoons of milk, use your judgment based on how thick the frosting is. Scoop the frosting into a plastic bag or piping bag and snip about ½ inch from the end of the bag. 

Once out of the oven, let the cookies cool on a wire rack for 20 minutes. Take the frosting bag and pipe a circular layer of frosting on half of the cookies on the baking sheet. Take the other half of the cookies and place on top to create the creme pies.
