oatmeal whoopie pies…

soooo it’s no secret in my family that i have sweet “teeth” not just a “tooth”, i just can’t help that my taste buds desire sugary sweet delicious treats.growing up my momma always had baked goods on hand, and her mother , my mamaw did as well, but seeing that i have like 20 cousins who would all be gathered at my mamaw’s house as well,homemade sweet treats didn’t last very long.but mamaw had a special drawer in her kitchen,it was the bottom pull out drawer that had a tin covering, so once you opened the drawer,you could then slide the tin lid open, i think it was supposed to be a potato drawer, but it made the most amazing sound.hidden below was always boxes of little debbies, and oatmeal cream pies were usually the little debbie of choice. to this day i still buy my little debbies when i can find them and enjoy every bite. so maybe try to make something that might take you back down memory lane…

from me two you,
