I recently had an oatmeal pie at a church dinner. I'd never heard of an oatmeal pie before. Honestly I thought the idea was a little strange even though I love oatmeal. Surprisingly it was good, but it seemed to be missing something.
I came home bound and determined to make one. I scoured the
internet in search of recipes and finally settled on one I thought would
do the trick. I couldn't leave it alone though. I did change it a
smidge and now it's really, really good. I even microwave it for about 12 seconds to warm it up and it's even better.
I was surprised at how much it tasted like pecan pie although I shouldn't have been. The ingredients are really similar.
2 eggs, beaten
3/4 cup light corn syrup
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup flaked sweetened coconut
3/4 cup quick cooking oats
1/4 cup butter, melted
A pinch salt
1 9-inch unbaked, single pie crust (you can find my recipe here)
In a large bowl, mix together the eggs, corn syrup, brown sugar, coconut, oats, butter and salt. Pour into the unbaked pie crust.
Bake at 325* for 45 minutes or until golden.
