Oatmeal (Pumpkin) Creme Pies

So I’ve been a fan of Little Debbie Oatmeal Creme Pies since I can remember.  My grandpa worked for the company back when my mom was a kid, so I think it may actually be in my blood.  A few months ago I attempted a different creme pie recipe, and while they were edible, they were a little hmm…intense.  The cookies were too big, the frosting was too runny, eating one was a legitimate task – it took real planning and effort…

This time I got it right.

I followed this recipe pretty much spot on.

However, you can make the oatmeal cookies lower fat by replacing the egg and butter with 1/2 cup of applesauce and a small banana.

As you can see, I made the balls of cookie dough super small: about 1/3 to 1/4 of what I would do for a normal cookie.  Remember, this is a cookie sandwich, so you eat two cookies at once.  Tricky.

They ended up being even larger than I expected, but still manageable.

Enjoy!

p.s. I still had a ton of pumpkin creme filling leftover.  I do hate to waste…
