This Whoopie Pie recipe is in honor of the original whoopie pie…Little Debbie’s Oatmeal Cream Pies. Ahhh…I’m not going to lie. Me and Little Debbie are best friends. Back in the day, I could really put them away (these days, I try not to eat them as often…they’re not exactly health food!). Thank you Little Debbie…for the inspiration :).
1 box yellow cake mix
1/2 cup veggie oil
1/4 cup water
1 cup Quaker Oatmeal (not instant..not quick cooking…the real thing)
1 tablespoon cinnamon
store bought vanilla frosting
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Combine cake mix, oil, eggs, water, oatmeal and cinnamon in bowl.
Drop by 2 tablespoons onto lined cookie sheet (leave about an inch between each cookie)
Bake 8-9 minutes
Cool on pan 5 minutes, move to wire rack and cool 15 more minutes
Take one cookie and place a tablespoon or so of store bought vanilla icing in the center. Press another cookie on top (this will spread the icing out to the edge).
This recipe makes about a dozen finished whoopie pies.
