Who doesn’t have a soft spot in their heart (or stomach) for Little Debbie’s delectable treats? When it comes to her Oatmeal Cream Pies, I sure do!
This recipe is courtesy of my own Little Debbie, fellow nurse at Sacred Heart! Debbie is a fabulous baker and after trying her oatmeal cream pies I knew I wanted to give them a try. They were not hard to make and turned out fabulous! Make sure to give yourself plenty of time when baking these, since you need time while the cookies cool.
