Items Required to Prepare This Recipe

These oatmeal cream pies, made with items you most likely already have in your kitchen, are always satisfying. You’ll want to often make these oatmeal cookie cream pies from scratch for any occasion because they will melt in your mouth.

  • Oats: To prepare the oatmeal cream pie, you will need quick oats. Steel-cut or traditional rolled oats produce a different texture and require a longer baking time.
  • Butter: Choose unsalted butter instead of salted butter. The butter should be soft enough that when you press your finger into it, a dent is left. It should also be at room temperature. Creaming it will be difficult if it’s cold.
  • Sugar: This recipe requires both white and dark brown sugar. While dark brown sugar imparts a caramelized flavor, white sugar contributes sweetness and structure. For optimal flavor, use dark brown sugar instead of light brown sugar. The addition of brown sugar also maintains the soft center of the cookies.
  • Molasses: This ingredient gives the recipe its distinctive oatmeal cream pie flavor and keeps the cookies chewy and moist.
  • Confectioners’ Sugar: Don’t replace powdered sugar with another type when using confectioners’ sugar. The fine powder will produce the smooth cream filling. This sugar may alternatively be marketed as powdered sugar or icing sugar.
  • Heavy Cream: Adding heavy cream will lighten, fluff, and enhance the flavor of the filling.
