This recipe for the Best Oatmeal Pie is Grandma's prized blue ribbon winning recipe. Like a pecan pie but with oatmeal!
THE BEST OATMEAL PIE
I compare this oatmeal pie to pecan pie. It tastes just like a PECAN PIE but without the pecans. So, if you have someone in your family that isn't a fan of pecans, then this might just be the pie to make. Oatmeal pie was developed in a time when either pecans were hard to come by or were too expensive.
TIPS FOR MAKING THIS OLD-FASHIONED PIE
- You need to use quick cooking oatmeal for this recipe. It's a thinner, smaller oatmeal than the old-fashioned oatmeal.
- Feel free to MAKE YOUR OWN PIE CRUST or a pre-made frozen pie crust that has been thawed.
- Dark brown sugar can be used in place of light brown sugar. It just has a tad more molasses in it so it will have a richer flavor.
