This Oatmeal Pie is from one of my favorite cookbooks, Candlelight and Wisteria. It is a cookbook that is a compilation of recipes from parents, friends and the staff at Lee-Scott Academy in Auburn, AL.  I love this type of cookbook – recipes from real people!

I marked this Oatmeal Pie recipe it to try this holiday season because it was described as “Tastes as good as pecan pie without the expense.” We love pecan pie, but it really can be expensive with all the pecans. I decided to put the description to the test!

Well, the contributor was spot on. This Oatmeal Pie did taste a lot like pecan pie! I might even prefer it to pecan pie. We served this with some vanilla ice cream and caramel sauce. YUM!

One note about this recipe, I used a regular frozen pie shell, not a deep dish pie shell. Make sure to grab the regular and not the deep dish pie shell when you are at the grocery store.

  1. I have made this pie many times. It is a favorite. I made it for the Thanksgiving pot luck at my retirement community and had many compliments. I have even had people ask me to make one for them. It's so easy and is perfect for someone who might have trouble baking. Thank you. Oh, and let me add, today is the Christmas pot luck…guess what I am taking…lol

  2. Very tasty! I added some oatmeal cookie spices too (1 1/2 tsp cinnamon, 1/2 tsp each cloves, ginger and nutmeg). Mine took a little more than an hour to bake and seem set up enough to take out of the oven.

  3. I've made this pie for a long time, and I agree, it is better than pecan pie. You might also try ritz cracker pie – it tastes a lot like apple pie.

    1. Don't cook the oatmeal first – add to pie uncooked. You can use regular or quick cook oats.

      Have no idea how to adapt this for steel cut oats – I don't cook with them.
