Mini Oatmeal Pumpkin Cream Pies




This recipes has been in the works for a while and was the first pumpkin recipe that I created this fall. It was for one of my favorite clients Krusteaz. Normally I post recipes for them on their site. But since their site is going through major AMAZING renovation I am here today to share it all with you! But first you need to head over to Krusteaz to check out how amazing their site is turning out so far! It will continue to evolve! So just you wait!

And while you are checking that site out start making these yummy Mini Oatmeal Pumpkin Cream Pies. They are made to be sure easy with their Oatmeal Scotchie Cookie Mix (which I must say is probably my favorite) and with a jazzed up frosting! And who doesn't love anything mini, pumpkin, and in sandwich form!
