Is this recipe an exact replica of Little Debbie Oatmeal Crème Pies? No. These are better. Rather than thin cakes, we went for oatmeal cookies that pack an almost peanut-butter-like flavor without any nuts. The crème filling completely nails what we love about the prepackaged pies, but takes things further with an almost airy, marshmallow-based consistency. If that doesn’t convince you, preparing these at home is just as quick (if not faster) than a grocery run.

  • Roll the dough into walnut sized balls, and place on baking sheets lined with parchment paper. Bake in preheated oven until browned, 8 to 9 minutes. Let cool on baking sheets 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack. Cool completely.

  • Prepare the Crème Filling: Beat together butter and shortening on medium-high speed, until pale and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add powdered sugar, and beat on low speed until combined. Beat in marshmallow crème until smooth.

  • Pipe or spread desired amount of crème onto half of cookies, and top with remaining half of cookies.
