Oatmeal Cream Pies with a twist

I was looking for something different to bake because I have been making a lot of chocolate chip cookies lately (although I use different recipes). I was running errands and walked by a Little Debbie display and saw the oatmeal cream pies. I loved those as a kid! I thought I would make a homemade version to bring to work. My twist is instant oatmeal packets (I used brown sugar and maple flavor).

You can add chocolate chips if you want as well. The filling is a cream cheese frosting. You could also use vanilla frosting or something else if you want.
