It tastes exactly like the classics we all love and know.
This Amish oatmeal pie is a classic. You might be wondering why we put oatmeal in a pie, but that’s okay! It’s actually an amazing, and surprising, substitution that dates back to the 1800s. During the Civil War, pecans and other nuts were scarce and expensive. People had to invent new ways to make delicious desserts. And thank goodness they did.
