I’m the queen of nostalgia, and I’m always designing ways to recreate special memories. For me, the Little Debbie Oatmeal Cream Pies bring me straight back to childhood where every family road trip always included a box.
My standards for this recipe were to create same thin cookie sandwich while keeping that soft smooth-ish texture. I didn’t want oatmeal whoopie pies or an oatmeal version of an Oreo cookie. They had to turn out juuuuuuust right. And I’m confident I figured it out.
I added a couple of steps to the instructions to ensure you achieve the closest possible match to the original version from “back in the day.” And the key ingredient is the molasses — the less processed, the better it is for you (as with most ingredients).
