Oatmeal Pie

OATMEAL PIE 

Type: Dessert (Pie)
Prep time:  15 mins
Cook time:  40 mins
Total time:  55 mins
Serves: However many you want (6-8 is what seems reasonable).
Results: Pretty good, this initial recipe is a bit sweet for me but I really like it. I will attempt less sugar next time (not dark corn syrup, that is important) and update this recipe as I go.
Yep, lazy on the crust today.

 

INGREDIENTS

  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 3/4 stick (6 tbs) butter, softened
  • 2 eggs
  • ⅔ cup corn syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup regular oats
  • 1 unbaked, frozen 9-inch pie crust (I got really lazy here)
INSTRUCTIONS

1. Preheat oven to 325 and place unbaked, frozen pie shell on baking sheet.

2. Cream sugar and butter.

3. Mix in eggs, corn syrup, and vanilla, scraping down sides of bowl.

4. Remove bowl from mixer and stir in oats.

5. Pour into unbaked pie shell and bake at 325 for 45 minutes or until crust is brown and center is just a bit jiggly.

6. Enjoy fully by eating it!

Featherlight Pastry Crust

2 1/4 cups Light Rice Flour Mix
1 rounded teaspoon xantham gum
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoon sugar (or to taste).
3/4 cup shortening
1 tablespoon vinegar
1 egg
3 tablespoons ice water (or as needed if too dry/wet)

blend the dry ingredients and then cut in the shortening. In a separate container (I just use a water cup) mix the egg, vinegar, and water. Slowly pour the liquid into the dry and mix with a fork until it forms dough.

chill the dough for at least 30 minutes, then it can be rolled out using rice flour (probably sweet rice flour is best) or you can do what I do and roll it between two pieces of wax paper. I haven’t played with pre-baking the crust yet, I assume 10 minutes or until browned under 425 or 450.

Makes enough pastry for a 2-crust 9″ pie or 2 pastry shells
