This recipe for the Best Oatmeal Pie is Grandma’s prized blue ribbon winning recipe. Like a pecan pie but with oatmeal!

THE BEST OATMEAL PIE

I compare this oatmeal pie to pecan pie. It tastes just like a PECAN PIE but without the pecans. So, if you have someone in your family that isn’t a fan of pecans, then this might just be the pie to make. Oatmeal pie was developed in a time when either pecans were hard to come by or were too expensive.

FREQUENTLY ASK QUESTIONS:

Why do I need to use quick cooking oats?

It’s a thinner, smaller oatmeal than the old-fashioned oatmeal and it is easier to eat and chew in recipes like this.

Can I make a homemade pie crust?

Feel free to MAKE YOUR OWN PIE CRUST or a pre-made frozen pie crust that has been thawed.

What if I don’t have light brown sugar?

Dark brown sugar can be used in place of light brown sugar. It just has a tad more molasses in it so it will have a richer flavor. But don’t use all granulated white sugar. It won’t turn out the same.

Can I use a sugar substitute?

I don’t bake with sugar substitutes so I can’t say for sure. It seems like it would work. If you are familiar with baking with sugar substitutes then follow the instructions you would normally use for substituting.

I don’t like corn syrup, what else can I use?

Sorry, I don’t have a good substitute for you there.

How do I store leftovers?

Store leftovers (covered) in the refrigerator for 3 days. This pie can be frozen. Cover pie very well or store in an airtight container so that it doesn’t get freezer burned and it will stay good for up to 3 months.
