Old Fashioned Oatmeal Pie

I made this Old Fashioned Oatmeal Pie last night with the other pie crust that I had leftover from making the Chicken Pot Pie.



This great pie recipe goes back over 100 years. The recipe came from Charleston, South Carolina during the 1860's. History has it, that during the Civil War, since pecans were in short supply in the South, oatmeal was substituted for the traditional pecan pie and the results were astonishing.

Ingredients:

3/4 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup white sugar
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/4 cup quick oats
2 tablespoons butter
1 large egg
4 tablespoons milk
1 tablespoon vanilla extract (or Maple extract for Maple and Oatmeal Pie.)
1 pie crust (frozen or homemade)

Directions:

Mix dry ingredients.
Stir in wet ingredients.
Place in pie crust.
Insert in preheated 350 degree oven for 30 minutes.
Let Cool and Enjoy!
