Oatmeal Pie

Comment on this recipe

This pie tastes just like the infamous "Pecan Pie," but, without the calories or the allergic reation of nuts and sodium doesn't exist. How "great" can this be for all of us that crave a holdiay "pecan pie."

Ingredients

1/4 cup unsalted applesauce
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1/2 cup loosely packed light brown sugar
2 tablespoons water
2 eggs
1 cup oats
1 ready-to-bake pie shell, homemade or frozen

Instructions

Cream together the applesauce, granulated sugar and spices in a saucepan over low heat. Gradually stir in corn syrup and brown sugar. Remove from heat and put in a mixing bowl. Add eggs, one at a time on low speed, add water at the same time as eggs. Stir in oats, mix thoroughly. Pour into, ready to bake pie shell and bake in 350-degree oven for about an hour or until knife inserted in center of pie comes out clean.
