oats and pie

April 14, 2013

My friend Darin posted a picture of oatmeal pie on her blog a few weeks ago, and I have been wanting to make it ever since.

I started to think about all the things that I like about oatmeal. Milky, sweet, buttery…

I found a few recipes, and altered them a bit to find something that I thought would work. I don’t like things super sweet, so I cut down the sugar a lot. I also really like the toasted flavor of lyles golden syrup (my mom carries it at the At Home Store), so I substituted it for the corn syrup I saw in many recipes. And I added a lot of chopped pecans, some cream, and a dollop of yogurt for good measure.

The final recipe came out  like this.

 

Pie dough for one 9″ pie crust, no top (1/2 the recipe)

 

Mix the following dry ingredients and set aside:

1 cup old-fashioned oats

2/3 cup roughly chopped pecans

a shake or two of salt

eggsandsyrup

In a separate bowl combine the following ingredients:

2 eggs

1/4 cup cream

1/3 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup lyles golden syrup

1 t vanilla

3 T melted butter

1 dollop (a healthy tablespoon) of yogurt or sour cream

mixing oats

Stir the wet ingredients until everything is nicely mixed together. Add the dry ingredients, and mix thoroughly. Pour into 9″ pie crust. Bake in a 325 degree oven for 50-55 minutes. It will be a little bit golden on the top.

Cool on a metal rack.

The pie isn’t very sweet, and is a little bit crumbly, but I like it that way. It is very rich, but can almost pass off as healthy because of the lower sugar content.
