Oatmeal Cream Pies are two cinnamon oatmeal cookies with a lovely cream cheese filling. Life-in-the-Lofthouse.comGrowing up I loved eating desserts like the Little Debbie Cream Pies or a yummy Whoopie Pie. Indulging in not only one cookie, but two with a creamy and flavorful filling was awesome. Two is always better than one, especially when it comes to sweet treats. My Oatmeal Cream Pies are all that and more. These soft cinnamon oatmeal cookies with a cream cheese filling in between are sensational.

We all can admit that when there is a fresh batch of warm cookies sitting on the counter it’s hard to just eat one. I will fully admit I eat at least two. Sometimes three if they’re extra delicious. The best part of this recipe is that you’re meant to have two! Take one oatmeal cookie and spread a healthy layer of cream cheese filling over the bottom. Sandwich another oatmeal cookie on top and suddenly your cookies have become a cream pie. This recipe couldn’t get any easier.


All you need to whip together this airy and decedent filling is cream cheese, heavy cream or milk, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract. Be sure to let your cream cheese sit on the counter to come to room temperature before mixing. This will save you a lot of strain and everything will come together much smoother.

My cream pie recipe yields 16 cream pies. It is very simple to double up the batch to make an extra sixteen if need be. These personal desserts are so popular to serve at parties that I usually double the recipe! If your family and guests aren’t able to finish them all in one day, then keep them stored and refrigerated for up to 5 days. We will pop them in the microwave for just a few seconds and eat them a little warm. It’s so good!

  2. Hey Holly!

    I also don’t care for the marshmallow fluff! I have avoided sandwich cookies because of that very reason. But cream cheese frosting??? Oh yeah! Another great recipe my loved ones will love. We are having our parents for dinner on Sunday and will be serving a breakfast type meal. What would be better than oatmeal sandwich cookies with our breakfast themed dinner? They will be perfect!!

  3. Visiting from Totally Talented Tuesday. These look so good, I could easily munch of a couple right now, I love oats but never had them in this kind of sandwich cookie before. I co-host Sweet and Savoury Sunday and would love you for you to link up some recipes with us. Have a great day!

  4. I made this recipe for the 4th of July and it was a HUGE success!! The cookies were tender and delicious (just the right amount of cinnamon) and that filling – whoa, I could eat it by itself 😉 For the 2nd batch and added raisins… mmmm mmmm good! this will definitely become one of my staple recipes! Thank you so much for sharing these delightful treats!

  5. I made these today….the cookies are absolutely perfect!! I chose to make a marshmallow creme filling, but will try this one soon.

  6. Although my kids and I loved the oatmeal creme pies (yummy), the cookies on their own are absolutely delicious! I made the cookies again tonight, added chocolate chips to half of the batch…what a great recipe!
