Homemade Oatmeal Cream Pies

"If you want something impressive and addictive to take to a bake sale, holiday event, or any kind of social gathering, this cookie is it. Seriously the best thing I've baked in a long time. Taste better than store-bought little debbie cream pies, and leave you wanting more and more and more! Creamy peanut butter and chewy oats together in a cookie sandwich filled with sweet marshmallow creme with a touch salt makes it really stand out in a crowd. I got the recipe from Better Homes and Gardens 100 Best Cookies magazine, and made them for the Holiday Cookie Swap 2011."

<p>I'm a stay at home mom with a 3 year old son, and a student studying for my bachelors in environmental science.</p> <p>I learned how to cook from watching my Grandmother Dee growing up, as well as watching culinary shows after school. My first 'real' culinary try, was creme brulee at age 14, which tasted good but alot like flan.</p> <p>I have alot of my Grandmothers old cookbooks, including a Betty Crocker Recipe Box filled with recipe cards from the 1960's. I LOVE LOVE LOVE vintage cookbooks!</p> <p>Food is definitely a pleasure for me, and I love to change others opinions on eating.&nbsp;I also encourage others to try new things!&nbsp; My passions are science, music, and art--as well as any DIY project!</p>
