Hillbilly Pie

Recipe by  

"This looks and tastes just like pecan pie, but it's made with oatmeal. My mom by marriage gave this recipe to me over 40 years ago. There's not a family get together without someone bringing one for our family dinners."

I sprinkled a handful of chocolate chips in the bottom of a ready made pie crust before adding the filling and it was delicious...and fast. Two pies ready for the oven in less than10 min, and they baked up beautifully. This recipe is a keeper.

I was looking forwards to this recipe, because I'm always looking for new nut-free recipes (my son is allergic), and this seemed like a good substitute for pecan pie. Unfortunately, this did not go over too well...I think that it was way too sweet, and without the pecans to cut the sweetness, there was no balance. Don't get me wrong...people ate it, but it took quite a while for this pie to disappear.

This was an incredibly easy recipe. My six yo pretty much made the whole thing (except the oven)I've never had a pie like it. It is sweet and if you like traditional pies (shoefly,pecan,chess,etc.)you will like this.Some type of maple addition might make a good variation.

Although this looks like a pecan pie, it tastes like an oatmeal cookie. I only used 1/2c white sugar but added in 1/4c brown sugar. Also, I used "Basic Flaky Pie Crust" from this site and the final product was very good. Its only been 12 hours since I pulled this out of the oven and its 3/4 gone! I think adding a few chopped nuts of your choice might be a good variation. Thanks for the unique pie recipe Jenny!

I was kinda leary of this at first, but wanted to make something quick for dessert and my hubby LOVED it. Ate the whole pie in 2 days! And has been begging for it again every since. Making it again tonight :)

This got great reviews at a church "pie night." I made it first because my mom loves pecan pie, but isn't supposed to eat nuts now. It really does taste very similar to a pecan pie. And, it's very easy to make.

Honestly, I made this pie because I liked the name, and I like to make fun of my redneck family. Little did I know, this will be one of my favorite baked pies. Will defiantly make for thanksgiving this year.

Even my husband, who doesn't like oatmeal, enjoyed this recipe! I took another reviewer's advice and added semi-sweet chips on the bottom of this pie, but I think I added too much. Maybe only 2-3 ounces would be a better ratio? Will keep tinkering with this one!
