My friend Sue always makes these cookies for the young people at her church in DeFuniak Springs, FL. She gave me the recipe; however, the copy was pretty light, so I googled "Oatmeal Cream Pies" and came up with almost the same recipe. It's one of Frank's four favorite cookie recipes, the other three being Chocolate Crinkles, his mother's Ginger Cookies, and Vanilla-Dipped Ginger Snaps. All three are yummy!
