Oatmeal Pie is an old fashioned dessert recipe just like grandma used to make. It has a consistency of a pecan pie with an oatmeal topping. If you added some raisins, it would taste like an Oatmeal Raisin Cookie. My crew aren’t big fans of raisins so I didn’t include any.
The molasses gives it a rich brown colour and an added depth of flavour. Serve with a helping of vanilla ice cream if you wish.
I used a shortcut with a frozen pie crust because I’m lazy, but feel free to make your own pie crust. I love my shortcuts!
It bakes for 55 minutes and let a cool a bit before you serve. It’s comforting, sweet and a reminder of days past. Did your grandma make Oatmeal Pie too?
