Pecan pie is a Thanksgiving and Christmas tradition for many American families. But unless your brother-in-law who has a pecan tree in his Georgia backyard is driving up to join your Ohio clan in time for Thursday's dinner, purchasing pecans for multiple pies in the local supermarket can be a pain in the pocketbook.
Steve Gibson has the answer.
His original version of oatmeal pie is a fantastic alternative to pecan pie.
It's juicier, less cloying, much more interesting.
"The base is like a pecan pie," said Gibson, but arrived at in a less processed and very autumn-friendly way.
"It uses oatmeal in the filling" along with a reduced amount of either pecans or walnuts. "You can have pecans in this version, but just a half cup. For a pecan pie you'd want a lot more than that, and the typical pecan pie wouldn't have rolled oats or the apples."
