Heavenly Pecan Oatmeal Cream Pies: A Perfect Sweet Treat

If you’re looking for the ultimate fall treat, look no further! And when it comes to autumn delights, these Pecan Oatmeal Cream Pie have all the flavors that perfectly capture the essence of the season. They’re absolutely delicious just as they are, but when I really want to treat myself, I fill them with cream cheese frosting and… woah!

But the fall indulgence doesn’t stop there. If you’re craving a cozy dessert that pairs wonderfully with crisp air and falling leaves, consider trying out my recipe for apple crisp with oatmeal cookie mix. It’s the epitome of comfort and warmth, combining the sweetness of baked apples with the comforting crunch of an oatmeal cookie topping.

For the Pecan Oatmeal Cream Pies recipe, I used pecan butter. I have never seen pecan butter in Switzerland’s stores, so I always make my own at home. This touch of homemade pecan butter adds an extra layer of nutty richness to these delightful cream pies, making them a true embodiment of autumn’s abundance.

Introduction about Pecan Oatmeal Cream Pies

Caramel Pecan Oatmeal Creme Pies Recipe | Sur La Table

Pecan butter is very easy to make at home with a high speed blender such as Vitamix or a food processor.

For best results, make sure to toast pecans before using. Simply spread pecans over a lined baking tray and bake in the preheated oven at 175C degrees for about 6 minutes. Don’t let them burn! It is very important to let them cool down completely before blending.

I usually make nut butter using 300 g (3 cups) nuts, because this is the best amount for easy blend! Less than 300g is too little and you will have to scrap down the butter from the sides of the blender all the time; more than 300-400g can be hard work for your blender.

To make cream pies, use a piping bag or a spoon to spread some cream cheese over the bottom of one cookie, then top with a second cookie and gently press to seal.

I recommend filling the cookies right before serving. You can keep the filled cream pies in the refigerator for one day, but I’d rather keep some extra frosting in the refrigerator and the cookies on the counter (wrapped) so that you can fill them when you’re ready to eat and always have them nice and fresh!
