I have been using recipes from this site for a while now; and have never registered or joined. However after having made this pie I just had to. Oh my gosh.....how fabulous is this pie?!! Perfect with Basic Flaky Pie crust recipe (using butter flavor crisco) So simple and so delicious! By the way....this is a great recipe for when you start out making a pecan pie and discover (in the middle of mixing ingredients) that you do not have any pecans. This is such an easy pie...if you've never tried to bake a pie....try this one! Read More

A friend made this for me after my baby was born. She brought over dinner and this pie for dessert. I ate the pie first it looked just like pecan pie and I love pecan pie. My husband loved it too and asked me to get the recipe. I was shocked to learn it was an oatmeal pie. It's heavenly. I made it for an early Thanksgiving family feast and it was gone even before the pumpkin pies were! Thanks for sharing!!! Read More

Excellent pie very similar to Pecan Pie but with a slightly different taste and texture. Good in its own right. However a few comments: 1. I agree that the timing in the original recipe is off. Like that of another poster my oven is accurately calibrated (checked it today with an infrared thermometer). I found that after 45 minutes at 325 degrees the pie was not nearly done as the center was almost liquid. It was much better after 60 minutes although still a bit soft. I suggest you cook the pie for 60 minutes AR 325 or perhaps 45 minutes at 350 (which is what most pecan pie recipes specify). 2. Regular rolled oats work fine; no need to use quick-cooking oats. 3. A teaspoon of vanilla might be a good addition. Read More

I thought this was very good and very easy to put together. As someone else said it kind of reminded me of pecan pie without the pecans. I made it in a butter cookie crust (recipe on this website). Read More

This is a charming little keeper! Melt the butter in a glass mixing bowl then add the Karo brown sugar coconut and oatmeal before the eggs. This way your eggs won't come into direct contact with the melted butter. I added 1/4 t salt used a hand mixer just because and covered the crust with a pie shield after 30-35 minutes. This is easy to transport too. Thanks for posting! Read More

People love this pie - it's amazing how fast this ones goes when most people have never heard of an Oatmeal Pie. And it's so easy to make. I use the frozen deep dish pie shells which makes this so quick to make as well. Read More

Excellent pie. I ended up cooking it for over an hour and probably should have cooked it a little longer since the pir was still a little gooey in the middle. Would recommend cooking for 1 hr. 20 min. Also I added 1.5 cups of semi sweet chocolate chips. Next time I will only add 1 cup but it was an excellent addition. Read More

My mother-in-law gave me this recipe over 40 years ago. It is a family favorite. The only thing I change is to add a teaspoon of vanilla. Just gives it a little more yummy flavor. You can't go wrong with this pie. Read More

This was one of the best pies I have ever tasted. My husband asked me for any kind of pie (after watching the movie "the Waitress") and this is the pie I made him. He ate half of it in one sitting!! I will make this again!! Thanks! Read More
