Homemade Little Debbie Oatmeal Creme Pies.

Soft-baked and delicious Oatmeal Creme Pies are easy to make at home. None of the artificial stuff! They taste better than the original too. 

Homemade Oatmeal Creme Pies - I think they're better than the original!

I’m feeling sort of nostalgic today. Well, I was feeling it yesterday when I made these.  And again today as I enjoy them. :)

I remember eating Little Debbie Oatmeal Creme Pies when I was a runt.  Unwrapping and crumpling the cello wrap between my fingers, trying desperately (and failing) to stuff the whole squishy soft cookie sandwich into my mouth all at once.  I LOVED oatmeal creme pies! And still do.

I haven’t had them in a long time – homemade cookies and cupcakes have taken precedence over my favorite mass-produced packaged snack, but that doesn’t mean I don’t remember how incredible they are.  So… I set out to bake my own from scratch.

Little Debbie/Little Sally, whatever.

Homemade Oatmeal Creme Pies - better than the original with none of those artificial ingredients.

I made Oatmeal Pumpkin Creme Pies last fall and adored them.  The oatmeal cookies are tiny, puffy, and very chewy.  They have texture. I filled them with a pumpkin cream cheese frosting, one of the frostings I developed in my pumpkin rampage last September.  This pumpkin version isn’t particularly a copycat recipe to Little Debbie, as the cookies had some texture and chew and they were very small in size.

Today’s oatmeal cookies are made with super soft, large, and delicate oatmeal cookies – full of brown sugar, molasses, and butter.  The cookies melt in your mouth. I sandwiched them between a bright white vanilla creme center.  They are much oat-ier than Little Debbie’s version.  Sometimes I wonder where the oats are in hers!

Are you ready for these?

Let me begin by telling you how much butter you’ll need for this entire recipe. 2 and 1/2 sticks just for the cookies and 1 and 1/2 sticks for the creme filling.  New Years resolutions can take the back seat. These are not a healthy cookie and I do not suggest making them into a healthy cookie. They are oatmeal creme pies, not diet food.

Cream together your butter, sugar, and brown sugar. I highly suggest using dark brown sugar in these cookies. You want all of the moisture and softness you can get – dark brown sugar brings more of the two than light brown sugar.

Next, mix in your egg, vanilla extract, and your molasses.  The source for this recipe does not call for molasses.  I added it for two reasons: (1) more moisture so we get a soft, squishy cookie like Little Debbie and (2) a darker brown cookie, again… just like Little Debbie’s.

Next, combine your dry ingredients.  Flour,  baking soda, salt, cinnamon, ground cloves, and quick oats.  Let’s back up for a second.  Are you measuring your flour correctly?  Make sure you are doing so because this cookie recipe is very precise.

The source for this copycat recipe does not call for ground cloves, but I wanted to pack some flavor into the buttery oatmeal cookie.  Paired with cinnamon, cloves are one of my favorite spices to bake with.  I love how pungent it is in my Chocolate Gingerbread Bundt Cake.

For the cookie’s proper texture and spreadability, it is imperative to use quick oats in these cookies. Old-fashioned whole rolled oats will not work.  You want very fine, small pieces of oats in the dough.  Since I prefer whole rolled oats in my granola recipes, my pantry is never stocked with the quick kind.  I make my own quick oats if I need them for a recipe.  For today, I measured 3 cups of whole rolled oats and pulsed them in the food processor 4-5 times. Now you have quick oats.

Combine the wet and dry ingredients with your mixer.  The dough is quite thick; I had to stop the mixer after about 10 seconds to mix the rest by hand.  Unlike most of my cookie recipes, this dough does not require chilling prior to baking.  More often that not, I chill my cookie dough before baking since cold dough assures a thicker cookie.  Little Debbie Oatmeal Creme Pies are not thick cookies, so not dough chilling is necessary.  You want the cookies to spread and stretch out in the oven.

I used my favorite OXO large cookie scoop (thanks for the gift, Amy!) to scoop the cookies into uniform sized balls.  Typically, I do not use a cookie scoop for m cookies.  But I knew I needed one today since the cookies have to all be equal in size to sandwich together.  If you do not have a cookie scoop, be sure to roll 3 Tablespoons of dough for each cookie.

The cookies only take about 10 minutes to bake.  Be sure to watch them. I left one batch in for 11 minutes and they were fine.  My oven is sort of wonky sometimes, so I advise you stay at the 10 minute mark.  The cookies will spread and they’ll be darker around the edges when they are done.

The cookies will be VERY soft when you remove them from the oven. That is OK.

Allow the cookies to cool completely before filling.  The creme center is unlike many copycat creme center recipes I’ve found before.  There is no shortening, marshmallow creme, corn syrup, or gelatin.  I do not use shortening in my frosting recipes, I like marshmallow fluff on my peanut butter sandwiches, and I just didn’t want corn syrup or gelatin in my recipe.

My creme filling isn’t a dead ringer of Little Debbie’s, but it’s just perfect for us. The filling is quite simple to make – 1.5 sticks softened butter to start.  Whip the butter around a few times with your mixer.  Add 3 cups powdered sugar – no need to sift.  Mix on medium speed for 1 – 2 minutes.  Pour in 3 Tablespoons of heavy cream and 1.5 teaspoons of vanilla extract.  Mix on high for 3-4 minutes.  I added a pinch of salt to the buttercream to balance the sweetness.

Spread on the bottom of one cooled cookie (pictured above) and sandwich with another. Easy peasy.

I am infatuated with these oatmeal creme pies. I can honestly say that they are one of the best cookies I’ve ever made.  The taste comparison to Little Debbie’s version is uncanny!

They are soft, ultra-moist, and squishy like Miss Debbie’s. I made them large, reminiscent of the originals (3 Tablespoons of dough in each cookie – 6 in the whole cookie sandwich).  When you eat one, the filling will squeeze out the sides – perfect for licking the creme around the edges. Get ready to have some sticky fingers.

Some of my cookies had a slight chew around the edges, Not much, but those were the ones I left in the oven for 11 minutes.  The centers of the cookies will simply melt in your mouth.  Soft cookies, creamy filling, brown sugar/molasses taste.  Pure heaven right here.

Homemade Little Debbie Oatmeal Creme Pies

They're better than the original!

Yield: 14-15 sandwiches

Ingredients:

Cookies

  • 1 and 1/4 cups unsalted butter (2.5 sticks), softened to room temperature
  • 1 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 Tablespoon dark molasses
  • 1 and 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 3 cups uncooked quick-cooking oats (NOT whole-rolled oats)

Creme Filling

  • 3/4 cup (1.5 sticks) unsalted butter, softened to room temperature
  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 3 Tablespoons heavy cream (using anything with less fat will result in a much less creamy consistency)
  • 1 and 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • pinch of salt, as needed

Directions:

Preheat oven to 375F degrees. Line a large cookie sheet with parchment paper or silicone baking mat. Set aside.

With a stand or handheld mixer, cream the butter and sugars together at medium speed until light and creamy. Add egg, vanilla, and molasses, scraping down the sides as needed. Set aside.

In a medium-sized bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and cloves. Whisk it all around. Add the quick oats and combine.

With the mixer running on low, slowly add the dry ingredients to wet ingredients. The dough will be quite thick and you may have to mix it all by hand after a few seconds in the mixer. Drop dough with a large cookie scoop, or make sure each ball of dough is 3 Tablespoons in measurement. Cookies will spread in the oven, so drop each ball of dough 2 inches apart.

Bake for 10 minutes, until cookies are lightly golden around the edges. Allow cookies to cool on cookie sheet for 3 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

For the filling: With a stand or handheld mixer, beat butter for about 1 minute until creamy. Add the powdered sugar and mix on medium speed for 1-2 minutes. Pour in heavy cream and vanilla extract. Mix on high for 3-4 minutes until fluffy. Taste and add a pinch or two of salt, as needed. If filling is way too thick, add a couple more teaspoons of heavy cream. Spread 1.5 Tablespoons of cream filling on the bottom side of half of cookies; top with remaining cookies, right side up.

Cookies stay fresh and soft (with creme filling) at room temperature for 2 days in an airtight container.  After that, store in the refrigerator to keep the creme center fresh.   These are best eaten within 2 days.

    I made these this past weekend and they were DELICIOUS! The texture and softness of the cookies were spot on to Little Debbie’s. The creme was different, but still delicious and so much full of flavor! My husband brought them to work and they were gone in an instant. I’m not usually one to bake a lot, but after making these I’m on a baking kick! You recipe was amazing and detailed which made it so easy to follow.

    I am an American expat, living in the Netherlands and had the worst craving for a Little Debby Oatmeal Cream pie one day, which of course you can’t buy here. So I searched and found your recipe and MAN, it was such a huge HIT!

    The cookies are absolutely perfect. I didn’t have molases, so subbed honey and they turned out so beautiful and tender. Next time I make them, and there WILL be a next time for sure, I will roll them in one inch balls and flatten them a little as mine didn’t spread out as much as I thought they would. People here tend to like smaller portions than in the U.S. so the first batch I made were way big (I didn’t mind though!) so one inch balls will be perfect for them.

    I also used your cream filling recipe and added some cinnamon to it and an extra tablespoon of cream (as I think the cream here is a bit different than heavy cream in the U.S.). It was absolutely delicious and everybody at the office loved them. That ones a keeper! I think next time I may try to fill them with a whoopie pie cream recipe that I have for a bit lighter taste and see how that goes too.

    Thanks so much for sharing this recipe! I will never have to crave Oatmeal Cream Pies again!

      Hi Sarah! I am thrilled that you loved this little taste of America. I would dearly miss little debbie oatmeal creme pies if I moved out of the country. They have always been a favorite store-bought treat. I loved reading about the changes you made to adapt to what you had on hand. I think you’ll really enjoy the molasses next time. And yes, these cookie sandwiches are HUGE! Best to go a little smaller if that is what folks are used to over there. We like things big in America, don’t we? Thank you so much for taking the time to report back Sarah!

    These are not anything at all like a Little Debbie Oatmeal Creme Pie. Trust me before you waste your time and money, especially if you buy all organic ingredients. We have cut out processed foods from our diet for about a year now. However, my five year old son still remembers Little Debbie Oatmeal Creme Pies. So he helped me make these. We followed the recipe exactly. He politely ate most of his but I could tell that he was not impressed. When I ate what was left of his, I understood. The cookie tastes mostly of sugar crystals and the icing is basically buttercream frosting. I won’t be making these again and it makes me sad to throw out all the cookies because of how much it cost to make them. Lesson learned, I should have looked for a recipe that actually had comments/reviews from people who actually tried the recipe instead of the ones on here that just say how good they look and how much they love Little Debbie’s.

    I have made these three times (about to be four as I am making them this weekend) and they are a huge hit! I have taken to making minis as the cookie itself is so filling and they are simply perfect. I´m an expat living in Madrid and you don´t get oatmeal cookies here, let alone ones with such a delicious filling, and people flip out when they taste them. So thanks for this great recipe!!

    I have to report back on the smashing success of this recipe.

    My husband requested that I find a recipe for oatmeal creme pies, so I tried yours. He and I were both huge fans … as was the entire staff of the organization he works for. But that was only the beginning.

    He and I work with people coming out of a rough time (addiction, prison, homelessness, etc), and so I brought some of these cookies to the guys at our weekly meeting. Didn’t think anything of it. The next week when I walked in, three of them immediately found me and said, very seriously, that those were the most amazing cookies they’d ever had. And that I just HAD to make more for them!

    Which brings me to a request: they want the original, but also a chocolate creme filling. How would I ‘convert’ this creme recipe to chocolate-flavored?

    Thank you for this fantastic recipe!

    Hi Sally!

    I want to make these over my break for my boyfriend. He is absolutely crazy about those Little Debbie pies (and so am I), and I figured these would be a nice treat! :) I was curious though if I could just use regular milk in the cream filling.

    I was also curious as to the texture differences between this one and your over-sized cream pie :). The over-sized one (based on the pictures) seems to be more flat/less thick and doesn’t look as oat-y…it seems to resemble the original Little Debbie more closely. This one seems a bit more thick and oat-ier with more texture if you know what I mean, haha. (BUT BOTH LOOK DELICIOUS, don’t get me wrong!) Could you down size the other recipe if you wanted a texture closer to that over-sized cooke?

    Reply

    • Sallyreplied on February 7th, 2014 at 1:26 pm

      Hey Rachael! Both recipes are actually quite similar in taste and texture. The large cookie isn’t as flat as these, actually. And these seem a bit oat-ier because I used store-bought quick pats. In the single serve recipe, I made my own and probably ground them up to be finer than store-bought. Anyway, I love them both! Feel free to make either recipe (you could use the other recipe to make 2 cookie sandwiches or 4 small cookie sandwiches) Let me know how it goes!

    I made these the other night and OMG they are literally my FAVORITE recipe from all of yours that I’ve tried so far! I didn’t have heavy cream and I know the 3/4 milk with 1/3 cup of butter works, but with all the butter in the recipe I didn’t have enough to make the heavy cream substitute. So, I used sour cream. They turned out great and I didn’t have any trouble with the consistency or anything! :)

    YUM YUM YUM!!! These were so good! They were better than the little debbie oatmeal creme pies for sure! These didn’t last longer than a day at my house. My 8 year old daughter helped me make these we had such a blast! It was so cute we were in the grocery store shopping after we made these when she spotted a box of Little Debbie Oatmeal Creme Pies. She said, “Who needs those when you can make them yourself.” It was so cute she was so proud that she could make them at home. She even took one to her best friend at lunch so she could try them. Her friend was very impressed and loved them! That night her best friends mom called to find out where I found the recipe for them because her daughter just kept going on and on about how awesome they were! =) You are a hero at our house Sally!

My friend I made them for says that the ones I made tasted better than the originals and my roommate loved them too! Even my grandmother who isn’t the biggest fan of oatmeal cookies gobbled hers down. I was so happy with this recipe and the smell while they were baking, oh my!

      Hey Christine! So happy these cookies were a hit! No, the cookies aren’t supposed to be greasy. How about you add another 1/4 cup of flour. That would help! I’m very glad you are excited about my cookbook!

    Hi Sally… the pies look yuuuummm….. One question, can i skip the molasses? I’m not sure where to buy any of it. Or any substitution that could easily reached?

      You could skip the molasses, yes. Perhaps replace with honey. You will lose a lot of the signature Little Debbie Oatmeal Creme Pie flavor though. But I’m sure they will still be fantastic!

    Hi Sally, I was wondering if I could substitute the filling you use in your oreo recipe for the creme filling in this one. Do you think it would work?
    Thanks, Ella :)

      That would be just fine. In fact, I think they taste pretty similar!

    I also love Little Debbies and these look SO Good!!!! The amount of butter in them makes me hesitate:( how many sandwiche cookies does this recipe make? I’m hoping lots so there’s not so much butter in each one! :/

      Hi Karen! These oatmeal creme pies are certainly a treat and you can’t really get around all the butter if you want an authentic taste. This recipe makes 15 sandwiches as stated. Enjoy!
