Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Pie


If you like Oatmeal Chocolate Chip cookies you are going to love this pie. Serve it warm with vanilla ice cream and it is a real treat!

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Pie
1 pie crust (homemade or store bought)
1/3 cup butter, softened
2/3 cups brown sugar
1 cup light corn syrup
1 TBS. vanilla
4 eggs
1 1/2 cups Oats
1/2 cup chocolate chips
3/4 cup pecans (broken into pieces)

Directions - Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare crust for pie and place in pie dish and flute edges.  Stir together butter, sugar, corn syrup and vanilla. Add eggs and stir until combined.  Stir in Oats, chocolate chips and pecans. Pour into pie shell and bake in 350 degree oven for 45 to 50 minutes until a knife inserted in center of pie comes out clean.

Cooks Notes - I always cover the edges of my pie with foil strips for the first half of the baking time to prevent over browning. 



Make a pie crust from scratch, a mix, or buy a refrigerated or frozen one.  
Pie crusts are not my strong suit so I usually buy Pillsbury refrigerated crusts but it is nice to have a mix on hand in the cupboard for last minute

I like to cover the edges of my pie with strips of foil to prevent over browning 
I usually remove during the last 15 minutes or so of baking

inserted in center comes out clean

This is a great pie to make for last minute guests. It is quick and easy to put together and it is made with things you probably have in your pantry!
