Pumpkin Oatmeal Cream Pie Instructions
Making these Pumpkin Oatmeal Cream Pies is a lot easier than it seems. In fact, it's just like making any other cookie. You start by combining the dry ingredients in one bowl, then combine the wet ingredients in another. Next, slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients mixing until just combined.
From there, you form the dough into small balls, place them on a cookie sheet, then gently push them flat with your fingers. Toss them in the oven for 9 to 10 minutes., and enjoy the heavenly scent filling the kitchen!
While the cookies are baking, make the filling. After that, all that's left to do is pipe filling on one cookie and then place another on top to form a sandwich. That’s it – the whole process takes about 25-30 minutes, yet tastes like you spent hours making them! Serve with a cold glass of milk and enjoy!
