Today’s post about oatmeal cream pies is a choose your own adventure.
- If you dream about soft and chewy oatmeal cookies that aren’t cloyingly sweet and have chocolate chips sprinkled throughout, bake the cookies used in these oatmeal cream pies and just stop there. You’ll love them straight-up and unadulterated.
- If you want to get decadent, definitely sandwich some of my fluffy vanilla bean filling between two of my oatmeal cookies and make the best oatmeal cream pies you’ve ever had.
- If you don’t have time to make filling, you can just shove some marshmallow fluff between two of my oatmeal cookies and call it a day. Just please don’t tell me about it, because it will make me sad.
- If you can resist eating all of the oatmeal cream pie cookies, save some for use in ice cream bars. (More on this soon, thanks to Julianne’s Bayer’s fabulous new book, No-Bake Treats)
No matter which oatmeal cream pie adventure you choose, you can’t go wrong. But watch out, you may be asked to bring oatmeal cream pies to every potluck from now on.
