Sweet oatmeal cookies are sandwiched between an easy “Marshmallow fluff” frosting to recreate the Oatmeal Creme Pies. 

These Oatmeal Whoopee Pies (Little Debbie Cookies) come from a Mennonite Cookbook called “Farm House Cooking.” Although these have a different filling and had some minor tweaks, you can leave out the frosting all together for a yummy oatmeal cookie.

A mixture of old fashioned and quick oats were used for these cookies but I think either should work. If you don’t want to use “Fluff” you can try to recreate a homemade marshmallow frosting instead. Give these a try!

 

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup shortening
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda dissolved in 3 Tbsp boiling water
  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 2 cups oatmeal

FILLING:

  • 1 (16 oz) tub of Marshmallow Fluff
  • 1 1/2 sticks (12 tbsp) unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar

Directions:

1. Make the filling by beating the fluff and butter then add the sugar and mix until combined. Refrigerate.

2. Cream sugar and shortening. Beat in eggs.

3. Combine dry ingredients (salt, cinnamon, leavening, flour and oatmeal.)

4. Add the dry ingredients alternately with the soda mixture to the shortening and mix.

5. Scoop batter onto greased cookie sheets and bake at 350 F for 8-10 minutes. Cool.

6. Sandwich one heaping teaspoon of filling onto each pair of cookies.
