Homemade Oatmeal Cream Pies

Homemade Oatmeal Cream Pies
Best Idea Ever.  

The filling in these.

How could anyone resist these?
Kid or adult?
I brought these into work.
They were gone.

Again look at that filling.
and I loved the hint of cinnamon in these cookies.

Even my cat was intrigued.  
What do you mean your cats don't like Oatmeal Cream pies?

Make these cookies.

I found this recipe from Girl Who Bakes. 
It was a Pinterest find. 
Of course.   
Here is the link to her recipe.

I made some alterations.  
I drastically reduced the amount of sugar in the cream filling.
It sounded way too sweet for me.
I probably only used a half cup of sugar.  
I also did not use any whole wheat flour in the cookie recipe. 
I used all purpose for the flour called for in the recipe.
And they turned out amazing!

Smiles and have a great weekend!!

Love is....

Love is.....
Decorating a bike for a bike parade.  
With pink balloons.  

Love is seeing the joy and excitement on sweet faces for their first parade.

Love is making two twin boys pose for a picture.
That they really don't want to do.
But, you make them anyway.  

Love smells like pink roses on a hot day.
And ice cream and Popsicles.

Love is seeing smiles on a face that loves the water and beach.

Love is watching cartoons in bed.  
And making funny faces during commercial breaks.

Love is Goonies..... lol

Love is two brothers who will always be there for each other.  

Love is this face.  And the cutest patootiest pose ever!!

Love is this.  In your face.  All consuming.  

Love and Smiles to all of you.
