Oatmeal cream pies

Growing up, Little Debbie oatmeal cream pies were one of my favorite treats! My Mom, was and still, is very health conscious, so we all ate very healthy meals, but were allowed treats on the weekends! These were my go to snack!! I found a recipe many years ago for soft oatmeal cookies, then came up with a perfect marshmallow filling to compliment the cookie so nicely. The taste combination brings back so many wonderful childhood memories. If you love soft oatmeal cookies and anything marshmallow, you will be in love with these beauties!
