Homemade Oatmeal Cream Pies. I won’t say this is a Little Debbie copycat recipe because these are WAY better. Honestly, I have only had the real deal about two times in my life, but I imagine this recipe as the more mature version of the grocery store classic. The cookies have a bit more height and I added a pinch of allspice. The filling is sweet, but not over the top. I added a lot more than necessary for the sake of the pictures so when you are making them, tone it down just a little bit. Unless, of course, you are a frosting person!
