Oatmeal Cream Pies

oatmeal cream pies 005How many people are obsessed with the filling in the middle of an oatmeal cream pie?

I kinda am… I mean I go to a bakery and they say they have an oatmeal cream pie, I then get excited and buy it. I later get sad after I bite it. so gross it usually a big clump of cream cheese icing. I mean honestly if I wanted that I would have ordered an oatmeal cookie whoopie pie. It usually has a hard cookie too and that is just nasty. Take your stale cookie and cream cheese else where.

these are like the ones from the box but way better!
