Pi Day Pie!

Here she is! Oatmeal-Almond Pie. Isn't she a beauty? She is quite tasty, too. How do I know already? Well, I may have sampled devoured the piece I took the picture of. But, hey, I hadn't eaten much of anything today and it has oatmeal in it...healthy...It's got a hearty texture and a sweet, simple flavor.


I got the recipe from Grit Magazine. Here it is with a few notes.

Oatmeal-Almond Pie
Serves 10
Ingredients:
  • pastry for a single crust pie (I took a little help here and used a store-bought crust. Spur of the moment pies don't always get home made crusts.)
  • 1 cup old-fashioned (not quick cooking) oats
  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds (I only had whole, so I chopped them up and used them.)
  • 2 eggs
  • 2/3 cup melted butter
  • 2/3 cup light corn syrup
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • pinch of salt
Directions:
  • Heat oven to 350˚F. Adjust pastry in pie pan and flute edges.
  • Using electric mixer (I just used a whisk. Dirtying the mixer is not necessary.), combine remaining ingredients (Let the butter cool a bit before you add it to avoid cooking the eggs.) until well-blended. Pour into pie shell.
  • Bake for about 45 minutes, or until filling is set.
  • Cool completely before cutting.
I did have a few ideas to make her even more yummalicious, including: adding a handful of chocolate chips, chopped dates, or a bit of cinnamon. I'm sure you will enjoy this pie and if you have your own ideas to dress her up a bit more, let me know!
