Oatmeal Pumpkin Creme Pies.

These Oatmeal Pumpkin Creme Pies are amazing any time of year! Soft, chewy, and so much sweet pumpkin and cinnamon flavors.

Sally's Baking Addiction Oatmeal Pumpkin Creme Pies - these are amazing any time of year!

You see, I first made these oatmeal cookie sandwiches last month for a bake sale. They were outstanding.  Selling them 2 for $1 was an obvious steal.

While they may lack chocolate, a sprinkle, and any sort of candy chunk, these cookies stood their own.  A soft, buttery oatmeal cookie x 2 with a thick layer of ultra creamy pumpkin spiced filling. Major mass appeal.

Monotone in color and lacking aesthetic pizazz, I hesitated sharing these cookie sandwiches with you merely beacause I wasn’t satisfied with the photography.  I’m a perfectionist down to my core. Shooting a light brown cookie with light brown orange filling and trying to make it POP on screen has GOT to be hard for just about anyone.

Anyway! Making today’s recipe, you aren’t going to get a cookie sandwich identical to Little Debbie’s Oatmeal Creme Pies (see my homemade version here!). While similarily soft and chewy, my cookies have thick cut oats and plenty of texture. Today’s oatmeal cookies are laced with cinnamon and dark brown sugar. Cinnamon, my kitchen’s disappearing spice, goes into practically everything I bake. Fragrant and sweet, it brings oatmeal cookies warmth and a hint of spice. Plus, it pairs well with the pumpkin spiced filling. :)

I prefer dark brown sugar in my oatmeal cookie recipes. The extra molasses in the sugar spikes these cookies with a more complex depth of flavor. It also helps make the cookies unbelievably soft.

The filling. Oh my heavens the filling. A simple mixture of cream cheese, pumpkin, butter, and powdered sugar, this filling is lusciously creamy with a gorgeous mellow orange color. It’s so soft and silky!

Autumn spices like nutmeg, cinnamon, ground cloves & ginger make this pumpkin cream cheese filling usable for nearly everything you bake this fall. In fact, it’s the same recipe I used to frost my brownie cupcakes.

The frosting/filling isn’t as thick as Little Debbie’s creme filling, but I found that adding a touch of flour gives the filling a sturdy texture without over sweetening it. It is the moisture in the pumpkin that makes the the pumpkin cream cheese frosting thinner, but adding a smidge of flour solves the problem without compromising the taste.

A win win in my book.

I made the cookies teeny tiny. No real rhyme or reason except that mini foods are the bees knees. My rule is if the food is mini, you’re allowed to eat way more than one. And when pumpkin and cookies are involved, trust me… I definitely want MORE than one!

Oatmeal Pumpkin Creme Pies

Chewy mini oatmeal cookie sandwiches stuffed with cinnamon-spiced pumpkin cream cheese frosting.

Yield: 30 mini sandwiches

Ingredients:

Oatmeal Sandwich Cookies

  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened to room temperature
  • 3/4 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 and 2/3 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour

Pumpkin Cream Cheese Frosting

  • 4 oz cream cheese, softened to room temperature
  • 2 Tablespoons unsalted butter, softened to room temperature
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger, 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves, 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg (or 3/4 tsp pumpkin pie spice)
  • 2 – 2.5 cups powdered sugar, sifted
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour (to thicken, as needed)
  • salt, to taste

Directions:

  1. In a large bowl of a stand mixer with paddle attachment or with a handheld mixer, cream the softened butter and sugars until smooth. Add the egg and vanilla and mix well. Slowly stir in the baking soda, cinnamon, oats, and flour. Mix together until just combined. Do not overmix.
  2. Chill the dough for at least one hour in the fridge. Cookies will be very flat if the dough is not cold.
  3. Preheat oven to 325F degrees. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. Roll 2 teaspoons of dough into a ball and place onto prepared sheet. Bake for 9 minutes and let cool on cookie sheet for a minute or two before transferring to a wire rack.
  4. While the cookies are cooling, prepare the pumpkin frosting. Using a handheld or stand mixer with a paddle attachment, mix the cream cheese, butter, pumpkin, and spices on medium speed until creamy. Add 2-2.5 cups of sifted powdered sugar depending how sweet you’d like it. If frosting is much too thin, add in the flour to thicken it. Add salt to cut the sweetness, if you prefer.
  5. Spread a generous amount of frosting on the underside of a cooled cookie and sandwich another cookie on top. Cookies stay fresh for up to 5 days in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

    1) I LOOOOVE that these are miniature. So cute, and I’m totally tempted to make the oatmeal cookie batch when I get home from work because don’t YOU ever get oatmeal cookie cravings on Thursday nights?! ;)
    2) That filling in a word: luscious. I neeeeed.
    3) 2 for $1!? Why wasn’t I at that art show!? I would have bought them all!
    4) I totally understand your photography meltdown. I made a banana bread a couple weeks ago and was SO annoyed with the pictures, I had to come up with an excuse to make it again to “photograph it right.” Perfectionism and brains..haha.

    And how did you know I LOVE LOVE Little Debbie OCPs? I mean, I used to be able to take down a box of those things practically when I was in h.s. after sports practice! I love them! But you’s so right, lacking in texture and real oomph. Sort of bendable and very soft yet textureless.

    What you did with these is amazing! From the dark brown sugar to the filling (pumpkin + cream cheese!) to making them mini. Just awesome. And your writing is really pretty in this post, too!

    I like to think I’m an ‘expert’ in all things dessert sandwiches [whoopie pies, cookie sandwiches,etc.] – only because they’re pretty much my favorite thing to eat in the whole world. But I’ve never ever EVER made a pumpkin creme filling look so spice-ful and pumpkin-y as this does! I’m saving this and scrambling for the ingredients to make them this weekend [if I can wait that long]. This looks delicious!

      Pumpkin does have that effect on frostings/dips/spreads. That’s why I had to add some flour and more powdered sugar (cut with salt) to thicken it back up. Let me know if you try it again, Aresha. Thanks!

    I was going to try making these this weekend – they look delicious! Would I be okay to substitute light brown sugar if I don’t have dark or would it change to taste too much? Also, how do I know if the dough is overmixed?

      Hey Alicia! For the dough, just mix it until no more flour pockets remain, so more than that. Don’t stand there mixing and mixing and mixing unless you have to. And yes, you can use light brown sugar instead. Enjoy! Have a great weekend.

    I just finished baking over 100 of these little cookies today! :) I am making them for my family Thanksgiving so I did a test run yesterday first so my roomies could have some thanksgiving treats as well. First of all, they LOVED them. Everyone said amaaazing things about them. I am happy I made a test batch though because I found that my cookies were a little bigger than I had wanted them which required taking a lot of bites out of the sandwich-like cookies and the frosting would kind of ooze out and make a mess. (Totally worth it though) So today I only used 1 teaspoon of dough to make miniature cookies and they turned out perfecttt after I baked them for 7 and a half minutes! I also didn’t chill the dough today and they didn’t flatten on me (perhaps because I used whole wheat flour? I’m not sure…) Hope my family enjoys them as much as I do on Thursday! My new favorite cookie dessert recipe :) Thanks for sharing!

      100 of these cookies?? Can I come to your Thanksgiving?

      Whole wheat flour is much heavier than all-purpose and I always have a hard time with my cookies spreading using WW over all-purpose. I’m sure they’re still amazing though! Happy Thanksgiving Sarah!

    AHH! Let me just say that these little Oatmeal Pumpkin treats are amazing! I made them and they are simply delicious! Of course, I would have eaten them all myself, but I decide to bring them to work and share the love. They were a hit! Plus I love anything Pumpkin so you can’t go wrong :)
