Family Recipe Friday - Aunt Veda's Oatmeal Pie

Here's a recipe I got from my gr-aunt Veda [my Grandma Bean's sister]. Aunt Veda was a wonderful country cook! No one could beat anything she made! From her homemade fluffy biscuits, to her red-eye-gravy, and her delicious homemade sausage! [Well, no one but maybe my Aunt Mildred, my Uncle John's wife. But Aunt Mildred holds her recipes tight to her apron!]

This recipe is one Aunt Veda used to make and serve warm with a scoop of vanilla ice-cream. It's especially yummy when autumn's cooling breezes begin to blow! I eat mine plain these days. Just enjoying the delicious richness of the pie by itself!


    • 1 (9 inch) pie crusts
    • 4 eggs
    • 1 cup sugar
    • 2 tablespoons flour
    • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt
    • 1 cup light corn syrup
    • 1/8-1/4 cup melted butter
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla
    • 1 cup quick-cooking oatmeal ( uncooked)


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Beat eggs until frothy.
  3. Combine sugar, flour, cinnamon and salt in a small bowl.
  4. Add eggs; mix well.
  5. Add corn syrup, melted butter, and vanilla.
  6. Mix oatmeal.
  7. Pour into uncooked shell.
  8. Bake for 45 minutes.

Yum Yum!
