Oatmeal Pie

November 20, 2011


I was going through Granny’s recipes to prepare for Thanksgiving, and kept going back to this Oatmeal Pie. Of course, the first thing that comes to mind are those little, wrapped goodies at the store. Those are great, but this pie is a whole other experience. This pie is an endorphin stirring, warm your bones, comfort pie. I was baking it this morning, and my husband kept circling through the kitchen. He finally stopped by the oven and asked, “Can I open the door and look at the pie?”. He looked so much like our boys at that point that of course I allowed it. Here’s how it all goes down…

Oatmeal Pie

A pie crust of your liking (I used a store bought this time)
2/3 cup of sugar
2 eggs well-beaten eggs
2/3 cup white corn syrup
2/3 cup raw oatmeal
2/3 cup butter (melted)
1/4 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp cinnamon
2 TBS flour

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Melt your butter and beat your eggs. Mix sugar, cinnamon, and flour together. Add the eggs, corn syrup, vanilla, and butter. Stir well. Then fold in your oatmeal. Pour this into an unbaked pie crust and bake for 45 minutes (or until set) on a baking sheet. Allow it to cool before slicing.



This is what it looks like before baking…


And this is after…

The top gets all chewy and carmelized…Mmmmmm! My husband says that our house is the only one where pie is eaten for breakfast. Well, oatmeal is a breakfast food!

I got a little carried away taking pictures of my vintage kitchen tools and a few of my Mom’s, so enjoy!

A pastry blender…great for “cutting in” butter for biscuits!


A cheese grater…made in France. Can’t wait to try it out!


Some of Mom’s beautiful vintage treasures…like mother, like daughter…



My best Stanford flea market find…my milk bottle. My boys love to drink cold milk from it!


A step-chair from Granny’s basement that we use every day, and a real, live phone…with a cord! Tried to recouperate it, but it would cost more to fix it than a new phone. Sigh.


It makes me smile, and little ones love to climb the stepstool and “talk”on the phone.

Keep posted for some Thanksgiving recipes!
