  1. Heat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. In a medium bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. In stand mixer using the paddle attachment, beat the butter, brown sugar and sugar until light and fluffy. Whisk the egg into the butter mixture. With the mixer running, beat in the flour mixture, a little at a time, until fully combined. Stir in the oats until incorporated.
  3. Spread the mixture onto a 9-inch-by-13-inch baking sheet and bake until golden brown and set, about 20 minutes. Remove from heat and cool on a rack. Crumble the cooled cookie.
  4. Combine the crumbled cookie, butter, brown sugar and salt in a food processor and pulse until evenly combined and blended (a little of the mixture clumped between your fingers should hold together). Divide the crust between 2 (10-inch) pie tins. * I used one round tart pan and one rectangular tart pan. Press the crust into each shell to form a thin, even layer along the bottom and sides of the tins. Set aside.
  5. Heat the oven to 350 degrees.
  6. In a large bowl, whisk together the sugar, brown sugar, salt and milk powder. Whisk in the melted butter, then whisk in the heavy cream and vanilla.
  7. Gently whisk in the egg yolks, being careful not to add too much air.
  8. Divide the filling evenly between the 2 prepared pie shells.
  9. Bake the pies, one at a time, for 15 minutes, then reduce the heat to 325 degrees and bake until the filling is slightly jiggly and golden brown (similar to a pecan pie), about 10 minutes.
  10. Remove the pies and cool on a rack.
  11. Refrigerate the cooled pies until well chilled. The pies are meant to be served cold, and the filling will be gooey. Dust with powdered sugar before serving.
