Oatmeal Whoopie Pies

So in honor of pi day (no no, I did mean pi as in 3.14159265.. Since today is March 14th --> 3/14. Yup, people celebrate days like today) I made these pies. Well, not pies in the conventional form. Pies as in Whoopie Pies. Never made these before so bear with me.









I just had a really nice looking strawberry, these is nothing strawberry in these "pies". But I do love strawberries. I haven't had a strawberry in so long. I don't know why. So I was just having fun with them today.




Anyhow, I had a lot of oatmeal on hand. I then realized that I haven't made anything with oatmeal in a long time. And I love oatmeal, so this was really weird for me. So I killed two birds with one stone. Got to celebrate pi day, and make something with oatmeal. And play around with strawberries. Today was a good day!






Happy pi day.
