From my Kitchen to Yours

Okay, well that's not really my kitchen but a girl can dream. Here is the recipe for the pie for those of you who are dying to make it.

Jen's Freaking Awesome Oatmeal Pie
1 9" pie crust (I really like the Barefoot Contessa crostada dough recipe)
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.

This pie goes great with a viewing of the movie Waitress.


  1. Yum! Sounds like a big chewy cookie disguised as pie :)

  2. Yum! Plus, I consider oatmeal nutritious. (ha!) And I love "your" kitchen! I posted mine a couple of days ago (the real and the dream).

  3. Yum - that sounds so good. Now if I could only get rid of my fear of making pie crusts. Hmmmm....

  4. Oh my...how yummy!!! This looks amazing!!! Thanks for sharing!!!

    Have a wonderful weekend!!!

  5. That sounds awesome! I wish that was my kitchen!

  6. Your recipe timeliness puts mine right to shame. I love the idea of eating a slice or two of this while watching The Waitress! When can I come over?

  7. MMMMMM...YUM-O!!! I think I have everything in my pantry to make this tomorrow!!!! Thanks for sharing! :)

  8. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE that movie! I'm inspired to make "I don't want to go to work today pie!"

  9. Yum...all my favorite ingredients...dough, sugar and butter, and chocolate. Good thing there's oatmeal to lower my cholesterol!

    Tell Maddie I appreciate her comment. Maybe she could facebook Will? I will tell him if some cute girl named Maddie "friends" him and he doesn't know her....I do.

  12. Mmmmm...mmmmm.....how am I supposed to stop baking so much when I read recipes like this????

  13. WOW Jen! I supersized the kitchen pic as it is a much more expensive version of my own. I was pining for those marble counter tops when I noticed the vase on the right in the pic is the EXACT one my Grama gave me. It was in our home all through my chilldhood and I thought it must be one of a kind.
    It was SO cool to see it in the pic!
    MMMMM ~ the cookies look yummy too!
