Homemade Oatmeal Creme Pies #SundaySupper

Homemade Oatmeal Creme Pies

Who’s excited for the Oscars tonight?  I certainly am.  Not only do I love movies, but I also have a great appreciation for those who work on them.  All it takes to make a movie great.  It really is something.  Plus, I know I will be at the Oscars one year soon.  Maybe 2018?  2017 seems like a lot of pressure.

I’ve actually seen all of the Best Picture nominees other than The Revenant.  And I was pleasantly surprised at the high caliber of these films.  They are truly the best films of the year, though I did really love Burnt.

It’s hard for me to pick a favorite.  The stories of The Big Short and Spotlight grabbed my attention since they are shockingly, heartbreakingly true.  Room is perhaps the most emotionally engrossing movie I have ever seen.  So much so in fact that I don’t know if I could watch it again.

But really, I just love The Martian.  Love it.  One of my friends said she didn’t think it would be interesting and I told her it may be one of my favorite movies ever.  I can’t wait to watch it again.  It’s part exciting action movie, part captivating human story, part science fiction that makes me wonder how a writer could come up with such a complex, detailed story.

Most of the reason why I love it so much is Matt Damon.  You can’t help but cheer for him throughout every engrossing moment.  And his performance shows that while action and science fiction are great, it’s the humanity in a story that really grips us.

Really, though, no matter which movie wins, it’s cool with me.  Watching these movies has shown me what a truly excellent cinematic experience is.  What movie do you want to win?

Of course, you’ll need something to eat while you watch the Oscars.  So I present Homemade Oatmeal Creme Pies.  They may quite fit with today’s Sunday Supper pie theme, but they are technically pies … it says so on the label.

I’ve actually never had a real Oatmeal Creme Pie, so I can’t compare these to the original, but I can tell you they are crazy good.  When I was making them, taking pictures of them, wrapping them to freeze, packing them for Dad’s lunch, I kept taking taste after taste.

The soft, chewy, slightly crispy cookies are perhaps the best oatmeal cookies I’ve ever had.  And sandwiched with vanilla bean buttercream, while these are simply irresistible.  Enjoy one while you watch the Oscars and some movies!

Homemade Oatmeal Creme Pies #SundaySupper

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 35 minutes

Yield: 12 sandwiches

Ingredients

Oatmeal Cookies

2 ½ sticks unsalted butter, room temperature

1 cups packed dark brown sugar

½ cup granulated sugar

1 large egg

1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract

1 ½ cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

½ teaspoon kosher salt

2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

3 cups quick cooking oats

Filling

1 stick unsalted butter, room temperature

2 ½ - 3 cups confectioners’ sugar

2 teaspoons vanilla bean paste

2 tablespoons milk (I used almond, use what you love)

Instructions

Make the cookies. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment.

In a large bowl, cream butter and sugars, until light and fluffy. I did this by hand but a hand or stand mixer will work as well.

Beat in the egg and vanilla until mixture is once again light and fluffy. Add the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and oats and mix until combined. The dough will be thick. You could refrigerate the dough up to overnight until you are ready to bake.

Scoop the dough using a small ice cream scoop, about 1 ½ - 2 tablespoons onto the baking sheets. Bake about 15 minutes, rotating halfway through, until cookies are golden brown and set around the edges. They will still be soft in the center. Cool completely on tray.

Once the cookies are cool, make the frosting. Using a hand or stand mixer, beat the butter with the confectioners’ sugar. It is best to add the sugar slowly so it doesn’t make a mess. Beat in the vanilla bean paste and milk as necessary until a spreadable consistency is reached.

Spread one cookie with a generous amount of filling and top it with another. Repeat until all the cookies have been sandwiched. Cookies may be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days or frozen, wrapped individually in parchment and foil and placed in a zipper bag, for up to 3 months. Thaw in the refrigerator about 2 hours.

    These are a favorite from my childhood! You’ve made me very hungry!!! SO yummy!

  2. I love oatmeal cookies but sandwiching them with buttercream…oh my! Dangerously good!

  3. Sara says:

    The hardest part is waiting that two hours for them to be ready to eat! Love Oatmeal Cookies!

  4. Your oatmeal cream pies remind me of my husband’s favorite childhood treats. Little Debbies? Anyway, your scrumptious dessert deserves an Oscar!

    As to your question, I’m rooting for Spotlight =)

  5. Sarah says:

    Can you believe I’ve never had a “creme pie”? These homemade ones would definitely change that!

  6. I really want to watch Room! I hope you were happy with last night’s winners! 🙂

    These oatmeal creme pies look so much tastier than the storebought kind!

    • Laura says:

      Room is so intense, but very, very good. I was glad to see Spotlight take the top prize. It’s such an important film. Thanks, Kayle!

  7. I’ve never had an oatmeal cream pie either but yours look great!

  8. Debbie Eccard says:

    Oh my goodness these look scrumptious! Scott and I are drooling. And surprisingly this seems like a fairly easy recipe unlike the delicious whoopie pies.

    I guess the movie I wanted to win was spotlight and it did so I am happy about that.

  9. Rachel says:

    I didn’t watch the Oscars, and out of all the movies you mentioned, I’ve only seen The Martian. I agree–It was an excellent movie. My husband read the book as well and thought it was even better than the movie (he thought the movie was great as well). I tried making homemade oatmeal creme pies once…Mine didn’t look nearly as nice as yours!

    • Laura says:

      I will check out the Martian the book for sure. I love to read as well as watch movies. I hope you’ll give oatmeal creme pies another try with this recipe, Rachel!

  10. We’re way behind on our movie watching! Have a ton of catching up to do. But we tend to stream movies at home, so I guess that’s our excuse. And a good one, ’cause we can mix up a batch of these while we watch the movies! Really good stuff — thanks so much.

  11. Tara says:

    Love these! They are too cute!

  12. Sue Lau says:

    These look like a perfect end to a bag lunch.

  13. These look super delicious! I love the Little Debbie version, but I would much prefer homemade oatmeal creme pies! Great recipe!
