Oatmeal Pie is an old-fashioned pie that is wonderfully sweet and gooey. The oatmeal gives it a slightly chewy and crunchy texture that is divine.
I love it served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or some fresh whipped cream. With a hint of cinnamon in it, it’s like a warm oatmeal cookie.
If you love Pecan Pie, you will love Oatmeal Pie as they are very similar. Brown sugar creates a fabulously deep and rich flavor.
Like Pecan Pie, Oatmeal Pie is super simple to make. You need only a bowl to mix the ingredients in and a pie crust. The ingredients for this pie are pretty much identical to that of a pecan pie, only oats are used instead of pecans. It is said that this pie became popular during the Civil War when pecans were in short supply.
You can use a store-bought pie crust or a homemade pie crust for this recipe.
To tell if the pie is set, give it a shake. It should still be sightly jiggly in the middle, but not really jiggly. It will set up more as it cools. I think it’s best to let it cool completely before slicing. But I love it served warm so I typically reheat it by the slice to serve it. The microwave is fine for this or a toaster oven.
If you like coconut, try adding 1/2 a cup of sweetened shredded coconut to the filling. It is really good and gives the pie even more of a chewy texture.
