How to Make Oatmeal Cream Pie Cookies - FOOD PHOTO SHOOT

4년 전

Because it’s Monday and it’s potentially going to be a long week. I don’t think anyone can argue that cookies are a must today, or that a classic like oatmeal cream pies is even better!


I just realized as I am writing this post that I am starting this week without chocolate. What? That is something that must be amended later I'm sure. Don’t worry, I’ll make up for it.


So, in light of these facts I am going to keep today’s post short and sweet because I have a bunch of things to do today. Hopefully you guys don’t mind. I’m pretty sure you’re only here for the food anyway so let’s get to it.


Oatmeal Cream Pie -> These three little words make me very happy, what about you? Unfortunately the real thing isn’t all that it used to be. Little Debbie may be very cute but the unpronounceable ingredients that go into her treats are not. Need I say, yuck?


Here I go again saying how much better it is to make everything homemade, yatta, yatta, yatta. I’m a broken record, I know, but can you argue with that? I just really like knowing what is going into the food we eat and I think everyone should enjoy that same peace of mind.


Okay, I’m not saying these are healthy or anything. They definitely aren’t going to join the power food list anytime soon, but in moderation they are such a yummy alternative to packaged junk foods. Plus, they are so easy to make and everyone loves them. Especially the kiddos. They even really liked them without the frosting and that is totally an option, or you can just frost single cookies.


Grab the kids and get baking this week and then all that’s needed is a big glass of ice cold milk and you’ll be set. Cheers!

Hehe, great job reading this and I'm so happy you enjoy my posts @blackmox!


1 1/4 cups (2 1/2 sticks) butter, softened
1 egg 2 cups packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons maple syrup
1 1/4 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
3 1/4 cups flour
3 1/2 cups old-fashioned oats
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter, melted
4 cups powdered sugar
2 tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
pinch of salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 C). Beat butter and brown sugar in a mixing bowl until creamed. Add syrup, egg, vanilla, salt, and spice. Mix in flour then oatmeal. Roll dough into 2 tablespoon sized balls, place evenly apart on parchment lined baking sheet, and flatten slightly with palm.
Bake for 8 - 10 minutes or until edges are golden. Remove and cool completely.
Whisk together ingredients for frosting in a medium bowl until smooth. When cookies are cool, use a knife to spread frosting between sets of 2 to make cream pies.


Ah good i missed the recipy in the post. Thanks, i ll see what i can do to replace sugar. They look marvellous and i love the way you photographed them..u&r


Thank you so much @noboxes!

Wow how I wish I can also cook like you.. Its kinda deliciuos in picture hiw much more when I taste it.. Great job!! 💓💓


Damn you and your delicious beautiful cookies! Trying to eat less in 2018. So far it's like Trump trying not to tweet.



Haha, well good luck with your goals @harleymechanix


Please man stop being a hater. I love her cooking and i have learnt a lot from it


Hater? Go google sarcasm. It was meant as a compliment.

Really very testy your food, i like this food. all the best my dear


And the best to you too @triptybarsha!!!!

This post was making me thirsty @gringalicious with all the great cookie shots, Then you saved it with the big cold jar of milk. Nice!!

Home made is healthier! No microwave in our house going on 12yrs. May you have a great week.

@gringalicious i always look forward to your posts. Your recipes are mouth watering and you have a great talent in taking pictures.

Oh wow I need a platefull if these. You could easily dip half of these into melted chocolate. I need one now ;)


Hey, that's a great (and dangerous haha) idea @karenb54!


Would be very dangerous, best only do a couple then lol :)

nice biscut
thanks for sharing


My boys LOVE your oatmeal cream pies! YUM!


That's so sweet @lifes-a-donut. I'll have to send some with the kiddos next time.


They would be SO excited! It's one of their favorites!


They would love that! It's one of their favorites!

Those look so delicious :O I would love to try them ! Also super cute pictures good job :) I love cookies but they have too much sugar in them i gotta change them with something with less sugar like that :))


I totally understand. These are very good without the cream and simply just the cookie if you want to cut out some sugar. Thanks @vasil-danev

OMG!! Looks really yummy!!


cookies look great! :)


Thank you so much @caminito!

Sungguh lezat

@gringalicious . Hah the joys of hot freshly baked cookies with a warm glass of milk. Your photography brings out the goodness that is cookies.

It's not fair that I just have to see the picture,
I just want one.

You must have read my mind. I love Debbie oatmeal pies and my Mom use to give them to us kids as a treat. I think they are made here in Pennsylvania. Anyways, I have on my video recipe to list to make these creme filled oatmeal pies. I'm marking your recipe down. Great photos! Have a wonderful day. Tess


Fantastic commenting, Tess. Keep me informed as to when you do your post on creme pies, I'd love to see it

Wow these pics are amazing. I might come back to this post to give the recipe a whirl. :)

Ohhh! Cookies with oat! It’s interesting recipe!
Eat this little Debbie


I'm so glad you enjoyed it @creativewoman!

Se ven deliciosas amiga, saludos desde Venezuela. Eres muy buena fotografo


Muchas gracias mi amigo @yesslife!


At first I thought they were coconut cookies, I love coconut cookies @gringalicious

You can always make these Chocolate Oatmeal Cream Pie Cookies? :)


Oooooh, wonderful advice @travelling-two!

Mmm I'm drooling, looking at these beauties. I've got some cookies planned for later too, and now I'm thinking I'd better make a trip to the grocery store for more butter so I can try these... It's been way too long since I've made any sandwich cookies!

The pictures you take for these cookies are so cool especially the one in the cupboard with a glass of milk its so professional, I can tell in the pictures that the cream is delicious it just looks scrumptious oh my goodness you are going to kill me with your tummy posts but I'm looking forward to your next one because I never know what your going to make next and its exciting!!! Have a great Monday!😊😊

Ha, well it is Blue Monday, officially the year’s most depressing day. You need a batch of these to take the pain away.

Sit with a coffee and binge the whole lot.

I don't know Little Debbie's, but I know oat cookies and these ones filled with cream most be pretty dank. Let's find out if I can't invent a vegan alternative with coconut or cashew! Thank's for sharing your ideas and your inspiration! Upped and resteemed!

One of my favorite snacks as a kid :)

Hope all is well


Thanks so much @trogdor. Yes, things are going very well.

Also, thanks for your piece on 'SMT's for Dummies." Although, I must admit I still have questions. Perhaps it won't be too much longer and those questions will be apparent.

Have a fantastic week!


No problem, glad you liked it! Perhaps we'll see a GringaCoin in the future...? haha


it has entered my mind for sure


Thinking about starting up a steemit-style micro blog on You could allow different levels of access for holders of gringacoin, or something like that. If you've got any specific questions I can try to do some digging for you.

@gringalicious....really a nice food...looking delicious ..and soo yimeee..nice photography looking aeesome..thank you for sharing with us...

Se ven ricas! buenas fotos!

This is beautifully made with love wow :D

Oatmeal Cream Pie Cookies super stunning work :)

Thanks @gringalicious, It's great pleasure to see all of your post.
Love and Peace👦


Ok, just commented on another post then read this one followed by your Intro post, probably should have read the intro one first! Anyway your blog is great, I enjoy cooking so I might have to give some of them a go (these cookies look pretty awesome! I always like oaty cookies!) but it's the photography that actually drew me to your blog. I write articles aimed at photographers of all levels and so I like to try and see as much variety as I can when it comes to photography. Personally I've only ever done one or two 'food' shoots, and they certainly didn't look as good as these.

For me great food photography is such a skill, and I think what shows in your work is that you're a photographer viewing it through the eyes of a cook. Like this one for example, you've made the cookies look right at home in the environment whilst making them look TASTY at the same time.

I've followed your blog in the hopes I'll learn a thing or two about food photography, and maybe a recipe or two along the way!

it's crafted with deliciousness wow
