Oatmeal Maple Cream Pies are made with a maple cream filling sandwiched between two soft and chewy oatmeal cookies.
How many of you love the Little Debbie oatmeal cream pies? I’m raising my hand for everyone in my family. Those little cookies were a staple in my girls’ lunch boxes as well as in the snack container. We’ve not had them in quite some time, and I truly was craving them. So, when the gracious sponsors of #ChristmasSweetsWeek sent us some wonderful products, I knew what I was going to make.
Changing up the flavors with a little bit of LorAnn Maple Extract in the chewy oatmeal cookies, and in the delicious cream filling. The flavor blends well with the oats in the cookies.
I used Dixie Crystals powdered sugar in making the creamy filling. It’s truly the best powdered sugar, and a name brand I trust completely. I love all of their sugar products. Between the two products, these cookies could only be amazing.
Oatmeal Maple Cream Pies are perfect for the holidays with the maple flavoring, and when you add sprinkles they turn very festive. Sprinkles make everything better, right?

If you want to give your Oatmeal Maple Cream Pies a festive look, roll the edges in some fun holiday sprinkles.
- ½ tsp baking powder
- ½ tsp salt
- 2 cups flour
- 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
- 1 cup light brown sugar, packed
- ½ cup granulated sugar
- 1 egg
- 1½ tsp. LorAnn's maple extract
- 1¾ cups old fashioned oats (not quick oats)
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- In a medium bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, and salt. Whisk till combined. Set aside.
- In the bowl of a stand mixer, add in the butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar. Beat until light and fluffy (about 2 minutes).
- Add in the egg and maple extract, and beat on medium until combined, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed.
- Add in the old fashioned oats and beat until just combined.
- Slowly, add in the flour, baking powder and salt. Mix until combined.
- Using a 1½ tablspoon cookie scoop, scoop out cookies and place on the prepared pan. Lighly press the cookies down so they're no longer domed, and slighly flattened.
- Place in the preheated oven and bake for 10 to 11 minutes until the edges are golden brown.
- Remove from oven, and let the cookies cool for 10 minutes on pan before moving them to the wire cooling rack.
- While the cookies are cooling, make the maple cream filling:
- In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream the butter, then add the maple extract and heavy cream - blend well.
- Add the powdered sugar, mixing on low until almost completely combined. Then turn the mixer on high and beat for another 2 - 3 minutes until the filling becomes light and fluffy.
- Once the cookies are completely cooled, add the filling to a piping bag and cut off a corner. Pipe filling onto cookie and then add the top cookie to the oatmeal maple cream pie.
