You can’t buy a boxed oatmeal cream pie that compares to these whoopie pies. You just can’t.
Check out what my pals over at Dottilicious Sweets And Treats had to say about this recipe:
If you didn’t know, Little Debbie’s Oatmeal Creme Pies are considered whoopie pies. Until I came across this homemade version, I had no idea they were, nor did I know what a whoopie pie was. Don’t feel as embarrassed for not knowing now, do you?! Let me tell you, homemade oatmeal whoopie pies are so much better than the pre-packaged, store-bought pies. Plus, you get more for your money when you bake them at home. I’m not going to tell you not to buy those packaged treats, as I fondly remember eating more than my share of the Oatmeal Creme Pies, but once you try this recipe, you’re going to want them from scratch every time.
I do declare, after I ate these oatmeal cream pies, my eyes became wide as saucers.
2 c. packed Domino brown sugar
3/4 c. Kerrygold butter, softened
2 Eggland’s Best eggs
1 t. McCormick cinnamon
1 t. baking powder
3 T. boiling water
1 t. baking soda
2 1/2 c. Gold Medal flour
2 c. quick oats
1 egg white (can omit)
2 T. milk
1 t. vanilla extract
2 c. confectioner’s sugar
3/4 c. shortening
Preheat oven 350 degrees
Cream butter with the brown sugar until light and fluffy.
Beat in the eggs and mix well.
Stir in the cinnamon, baking powder, boiling water, baking soda, and flour. Mix to combine.
Stir in the oats.
Drop cookies onto non-stick pans. I used a 1 T scoop, which I recommend.
Bake for 8-10 minutes. You’ll want the cookies to have a light brown color. Do not overbake! Let cookies cool, then pair cookies of similar shape together.
Put around 1 t. of filling on one cookie and top with another cookie.
Continue until all cookies have been made into whoopie pies.
To make the filling:
Beat egg white. Mix in milk, vanilla, and 1 c. confectioner’s sugar. Beat in the shortening and remaining sugar. Beat until light.

Quick Tip: Individually wrap these yummy little pies up with Saran wrap.
