Oatmeal Cream Pies

Well as some of you may know I had a surgery last weekend to remove my gall bladder. It was not planned, I went into the hospital with the worse attack I've ever had only to find out my gall bladder was inflamed and needed to be removed! I was freaking out because I have never had any type of surgery! I now respect anyone has ever had any type of surgery. Wow! I was hurting for a whole week after. I still have pains every once in a while but I'm glad to be back baking some goodies!!
So I have been dying to make these ever since I found the recipe on Shugary Sweets! She is awesome! Oh and let me warn you, these are NOT healthy, like at all! But they are so yummy! I loved them and will definitely be making them again! Hope you enjoy!
