Can't Pie Me Love

Okay, well maybe you can. Do you remember awhile back when I mentioned the movie Waitress? Well, the long awaited day came and the DVD was finally released. This time I was prepared for the craving that I knew would come, and baked a pie to enjoy hot out of the oven while we watched the movie. I highly recommend purchasing this movie but you might want to consider the consequences of your expanding waistline beforehand. Here is a recipe for those of you brave enough to watch it.

Oh Me, Oh My, Oatmeal Pie
1 9" pie crust
2 large eggs
1/2 stick melted butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2/3cup brown sugar
1/3 cup light corn syrup
1/3 cup dark corn syrup

2/3 cup old fashioned oats
1 (generous) cup chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350°. Make pie crust and set aside. In a medium bowl, beat the eggs and then add melted butter, vanilla, sugar and corn syrup and continue to whisk until well incorporated. Fold in oats and chocolate chips and pour into uncooked pie crust. Bake aprox 45 mins or until the crust is golden and the filling is firm to the touch. Let cool on a wire rack for 15 minutes if you can stand it.

Thank you for all the wonderful comments on my last post. I'm so happy to be in the company of so many like minded people. I want to make it clear that both of those pictures were inspiring my simple decorating and are not of my home. I wish! I believe they were from Country Living and BHG respectively. I would love to make a wreath like that some day though, and have been gathering the materials. I don't think that will happen this year.


  1. This looks delicious! I will definitely copy down the recipe and make it :-} Thanks for sharing Jen.

  2. Ah Jen, you don't mention chocolate chips in the ingredients!! How many chips should we use? Don't say "as many as you want" that would be waaaay too many!


  3. Oh yes, good plan on the pre-emptive pie! My friend and I drove around town pieless and sad after we saw Waitress at the theater. The pie recipe you posted sounds delish!

  4. Aren't pies fun? They are so easy, but get lots of ooohs and ahhhs. I'm really looking forward to seeing Waitress, sounds like such a good movie.
    BTW, if you are in a baking mood, I'm hosting a virtual cookie exchange over at you should check it out :0)

  5. Looks like a great pie! Thanks for posting the recipe. I've been meaning to see Waitress and am happy it has been released to DVD. I've heard many good things about it!

  6. My husband and I watched the Waitress dvd this weekend. We both really enjoyed it! And yes we had pie! Apple with a crumble top. Yumm. Love your blog!

  7. Sounds really good!
    When I went to see this movie, we had to go out for pie afterwards.
    It's a must!

  8. That looks scrumpdely-ishus, Jen! If that's a word...that's what I think when I see that pie!


  9. Oh, I loved that movie. I have been a fan of Kerri Russel since her days on Felicity, and loved her even more in this movie. I watched it on the plane ride from Seattle to Dallas, on my way to visit Jerusalem this summer, and they had to turn it off just before the ending during landing!! I was so upset that I might not get to see the ending, but they were nice enough to turn it back on as we taxied (that looks weird) to the gate. Little did I know at the time(or maybe I did subconsiously) that I was pregnant myself :)

    BTW, Elf is one of my favorite holiday movies, too. There are so many parts that just make giggle!

  10. I put Waitress on hold at the library just a few minutes ago! Can hardly wait for it to come.

  11. What a wonderful recipe...I can't wait to try it! I would have to say that pie is probably my favorite dessert.

    Thank you again so much for your sweet comments on my blog. :)


  12. I have been waiting for this movie since you first mentioned it. I will rent it soon, and let the sweet cravings begin...!!

  13. OMGosh, that is the best looking pie I have ever seen! It looks sooo good. If it's ok with you, I want to post your pie slice that I am looking at now and when I got so hungry for it, show you what I had to eat!!! Is that ok?
    hugs, bj

  14. Mmmm, the pie sounds good. Thanks for the warning. I will make sure to have a pie ready to go before watching the movie.

  15. Good morning...I just wanted to say that I am talking about your beautiful pie slice in my morning blog...come by and see what I had to eat when I saw your pie and got so hungry....
    hugs, bj

  16. I bought the book Sweety Pies on your reccommendtion (LOVED it) and promptly gave it to my neighbor who make the most wonderful pies! She loved the book - and I may have scored some "pie-points" Thanks for your beautiful blog!
