Peaches & Oatmeal Cream Pies

Well, I didn't get a chance to do a post for the dessert challenge last month. I totally made a delicious dessert but with all the traveling out of town I didn't get around to posting it. I had a hard time thinking up something to make with the ingredients for this month: peaches and cream. This Peaches and Cream Torte I have on my blog would have been perfect if I hadn't already made it, but the rules state it has to be a recipe that I haven't posted before. That's what I get for craving light summery desserts during the cold, dreary, winter months.  So anyway, I was having a hard time thinking something up until I got the reminder email and it said the cream didn't have to be literal, it just had to be a creamy ingredient.  I got to thinking frosted cookies would be easy. So I searched for cookie recipes and saw oatmeal cookies that had peaches in them and then I saw the idea of blueberry and oatmeal cream pies on Pinterest and thought I could replace the blueberries with peaches.

I'm sorry, but I've turned word verification on again. I hate trying to decipher the words just as much as anyone, but I'm getting way too much spam. I tried doing comment moderation as people suggested but the number or spam comments I had to sift through was ridiculous. I appreciate your comments and didn't want them to get lost among the spam. Hopefully, I can reduce the amount of spam and turn the word verification off soon.
