Before anything else, I need to say that these are by far my favorite oatmeal raisin cookies. Hands down. The funny part is that they have no cinnamon or nutmeg which kinda blows my mind. Okay, back to it.
I remember in grade school when my mom would put the Little Debbie snacks in my lunch. It seemed like the biggest special occasion ever. Individually wrapped tiny brownies and rolls and cupcakes with frosting you could peel off in one piece. Best day ever. Of course, we can’t forget about the Oatmeal Cream Pie. Let the recreating of childhood begin…
Although they aren’t individually wrapped in cellophane, these are still, dare I say….better than the original. Soft and sweet oatmeal raisin cookies with cream cheese frosting sandwiched in between. Cream Cheese Frosting! Also known as the best kind of frosting in the universe.
No idea if they even make Oatmeal Cream Pies anymore, but you should make these and throw one in your kids lunch and they will love you, behave and not talk back. Okay, maybe not, they aren’t magic but they will be super happy and their friends will all be jealous.
