I used to LOVE the Little Debbie oatmeal creme pies as a kid. I haven't had one for ages. But the other day on Pinterest I came across this recipe for a homemade version and absolutely had to try it out.
I could tell they were going to be good because the dough was amazingly delicious. Like the I wanted to eat the whole bowl raw kind of delicious. But I did not eat the whole bowl raw, which was for the best I suppose, and certainly worked out well for Adam because I am a nice wife and shared my cookies instead of eating them all myself. Aren't I great?
So, the cookies, they were good. And even though I had my doubts about a food item containing marshmallow creme*, the filling was good too, though maybe just a touch too sweet for me. I thought about making my own marshmallow creme (using this recipe), but in the end I went the easy route and bought some. Probably for the best since my candy thermometer and I don't get along very well. Oh, and I used old fashioned rolled oats instead of the quick oats called for, which worked out fine.
Adam and I agreed that the cookies were even better after a couple of days, which is always a bonus.
*I do not like marshmallows. Not at all, never have. But it is mostly a texture thing, so I decided maybe I could handle marshmallow creme. I was not a fan of the little taste I had of the marshmallow creme plain, but all mixed up with the shortening and sugar and whatnot, it was fine.
