Oatmeal Cream Pies

So here I am back from vacation, trying to lose a few pounds and I decide to make cookies. What a fool am I. I was totally craving these Oatmeal cream pies from Sept Everyday Food though. I love oatmeal cookies. And the thought of them as a sandwich cookie with cream in between – well, there was no stopping me.

The cookies were easy to make. I omitted the raisins. You bake until they are set at the edge and soft in the center. Mine all ran together on the baking sheet so I ended up with cookies with somewhat square edges since I had to cut them. I was happy with the cookies (although I would not make them as big as Martha says – they were too big – I would cut the size in half).

On to the cream filling. It’s made with cream cheese and powdered sugar. Not exactly what I had in mind. And I didn’t really care for it unfortunately. I was imagining fluffy creamy filling – more sugary than cheesy. Oh well. The cookies ended up ok, but I sent them off to Mr. MarthaAndMe’s office. I would not make this again unless I came up with a different filling. And then I think I might think of a way to make the cookies thicker and smaller. I’m not going to include the recipe here because honestly, I wouldn’t recommend it. Sorry, Martha.

    im a bigger fan of the savory than the sweet so the cookies sound delicious.

    OMG! Those sounded delicious. I wonder if you could make carrot cake cookies with that filling and that would probably work. I’m going on the site (I still don’t subscribe but will get around to it again) to check out the recipe. I’ve been aching to bake lately, so I might give them a try.

    The recipe isn’t up on the site yet since this was in the Sept issue. Yes, I thought about carrot cake too, but carrot cake has to be moist to be good so I’m not sure how to make it a cookie and keep that property.

    Thanks! I just looked at the site and couldn’t find it. I’ll try to find the magazine. It must be somewhere in Northern VA!

    I would be happy to scan it and send it to you. Will try to do so by the end of the day if possible.

    So sorry these didn’t work for you. It sounds yummy, like a homemade Little Debbie oatmeal cream pie. I wonder if a woopie (sp?) pie filling might work better. It is usually made with butter, powdered sugar, vanilla, and marshmallow creme.

  7. marthaandme says:

    Yes, that is exactly what it needed!

  8. When I saw your post, I also had a vision of the homemade version of Little Debbie. Those are very sweet.

    Amen! I am glad to hear someone else had trouble with these cookies. I think I might try a lot less butter to help with the spreading and thickness of the cookie. I liked the flavor of the cookie, but dito on the filling, not a fan.

    Hi Erica. What a mess, right? Less butter sounds like a good idea. If you try it, let me know how they turn out!
