When I first stumbled across a recipe for Oatmeal Pie, I was pretty skeptical about how it would taste. There's a variation of this dessert in almost every Amish cookbook I've come across, though, so I figured it must be reasonably palatable! Everyone in my family loved it, and seeing as how it calls for very inexpensive ingredients that are pantry staples, I was happy to add it to my repertoire of Tightwad Desserts :) The raisins and coconut are optional but delicious additions to this dish.
Ingredients:Pastry for a single crust 9" pie
1/2 cup butter, melted
3/4 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup honey or corn syrup
1 cup rolled oats
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup coconut
Instructions:Roll out pie crust and fit into pie plate.
In a medium bowl, combine butter, brown sugar, eggs, honey, and oats. Stir until well combined. Fold in raisins and coconut. Pour filling into prepared pie crust. Bake at 375F for 40-45 minutes, or until golden brown.
