Oatmeal Creme Pies

I remember back in the day my mom would pack a Little Debbie's snack in my lunch box.  Some of my favorites were the Zebra cakes, Nutty Bars, and of course the Oatmeal Creme Pies.    The Raisin Creme Pies were my least fave, but they ended up in there from time to time.  This recipe brought back some serious grade school nostalgia, a homemade oatmeal cookie (better than the original, sorry Lil Deb) sandwiched between some store bought marshmallow fluff.  I added a little Valentine's flair with some white, pink, and red sprinkles.  My first bite made me feel like it was snack time at Daniel Webster School circa 1987.  It's kind of crazy how food can take you back to a certain time and place.  It can invoke all of these feelings and help you remember things a little more clearly.   I think that is definitely one of the things that I really love about cooking and baking.
