I never met a whoopie pie I didn’t like and the oatmeal variety is no exception.
Just one will do you, as it is pretty filling.
Filling and very yummy!

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Grease a few cookie sheets.



1-1/2 cups brown sugar
1/2 cup shortening
1/4 cup(1/2 stick) butter, softened
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 eggs
3 Tablespoons milk
2-1/2 cups flour
2 cups oatmeal


1 egg white
2 Tablespoons flour
2 Tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1-3/4 cup + 1 Tablespoon powdered sugar, divided
3/4 cup shortening

First you need to assemble the cookies.
In a bowl, cream together the brown sugar, shortening, butter, salt,cinnamon, nutmeg, baking powder, baking soda, and vanilla extract.
Beat in the eggs and milk until the batter is smooth.
Stir in the flour and oatmeal.
Drop the batter by tablespoon onto the greased cookie sheets. Make sure you get an even number.
Bake for 8-10 minutes until set.
Remove from oven and leave on the baking sheet for 5 minutes before putting on a baking rack to cool.
While the cookies cool, make the filling.

In a large bowl, beat the egg white, flour, milk, vanilla extract, shortening, and 1 tablespoon powdered sugar.
When that is well blended, beat in the remaining 3/4 cup shortening.

To assemble, spread cookie with filling and top with another cookie.
You should end up with about 20 oatmeal whoopie pies.
