Recipe Tips

  • These cookies spread while baking, so be sure to give them room when placing them in the air fryer basket.
  • Make uniform cookie dough balls so they are all the same size.
  • If any of the baked cookies aren’t round after baking, use the edge of a knife to gently reshape while still warm.
  • Use about 1 tablespoon of filling per sandwich to get the maximum frosting to cookie ratio.
  • Use a piping bag to evenly add the filling to the cookies.
  • Allow the oatmeal cookies to cool completely before adding the creme filling.

Variations

  • Try adding a 1/8 teaspoon of coconut extract to the cookie batter!
  • Try using a flavored marshmallow fluff!
  • For more spice, add 1/4 tsp ground ginger to the cookie batter.
  • Try substituting rolled oats for quick oats for a slightly different texture.
  • Try substituting half the butter for shortening for a different shape cookie.

FAQ

What is an oatmeal creme pie?

Oatmeal creme pies are the very first snack produced under the Little Debbie brand name. This recipe is a copycat version of that.

Can I bake the cookies in the oven instead of the air fryer?

You can absolutely bake these cookies in the oven! Preheat the oven to 360 degrees and place the rolled cookie dough scoops onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Bake for 9-10 minutes and let the cookies cool completely on the baking sheet before removing.

How long to oatmeal creme pies stay fresh?

They can last at room temperature for about 3 days. Check out the storing tips above to store for longer.

Can I use a store bought frosting for the filling instead of making the marshmallow creme?

Sure! Try a whipped fluffy white frosting for a nice fluffy texture.

What is unsulfered molasses?

Unsulphured, or regular molasses, is extracted from mature sugarcane and it has no additives. The stuff you but in the store is likely unsulphered. My go to brands are Grandma’s or Brer Rabbit.
