Country Music, Coffee and Oatmeal Cream Pies

0 Flares 0 Flares ×

When I was younger, as in not even old enough to purchase alcohol legally younger, I proclaimed the day I listened to country music and drank coffee would be the day I became old. Well my friends, that day has come. I have SIX country music stations programmed in my Subaru (most are satellite radio stations) and just a few weekends ago, I drank two cups of coffee in one day.

Now that I’m old and drinking coffee, I need something equally fitting to eat with it. When I was a kid, and should NOT have been drinking coffee, I used to dip those cheap, but delicious, creme-filled cookies into a cup of hot coffee. Though the cookies sounded great, the thought of having pieces of them floating in my coffee was not appetizing.

Then it hit me. In all places, Sam’s Club. While on a hunt for dog beds large enough for Wrigley and Chloe, I came across a ginormous box of Little Debbie Oatmeal Creme Pies. Another guilty pleasure from my childhood. I thought about how delicious those cookies would be with a cup of hot coffee and thought, forget about buying them I can make them myself!

Welllll, yes I could make the myself if I could find a recipe. So I searched and came across a recipe for homemade oatmeal creme pies. Talk about a HUGE score.

I followed the recipe to the T, except for the creme filling. Since I’m drinking coffee…with creamer and still not “old” enough to take it straight black (my preference is 3 parts coffee, 1 part International Delight cremer in about any flavor our there. Right now my personal favorite is still Caramel Macchiato), I thought what the heck, instead of using the heavy cream, throw in the coffee creamer!

The results? Amazing. I can’t tell you exactly how much creamer I used as I kept added until I got the desired consistency but I will tell you, less is more. You can always more creamer but you can never take it back.

So, if you have a bottle or two of creamer in your refrigerator and are craving some sweet treats from your childhood, try your hand at homemade oatmeal creme pies. You won’t be disappointed!
