Amish Oatmeal Pie Recipe {Easy 5 Minute Pie Filling with Rich Brown Sugar Flavor}

Amish Oatmeal Pie Recipe {Easy 5 Minute Pie Filling with Rich Brown Sugar Flavor}

Amish Oatmeal Pie

Comforting Amish Oatmeal Pie that tastes remarkably like pecan pie. Brown sugar gives a deep, rich flavor to this sweet, simple pie that is a favorite Amish country recipe. If  you like pies, also try our sour cherry pie and buttermilk pie!

Oatmeal Pie Recipe

Have you ever heard of Amish Oatmeal Pie?  Evidently during the Civil War, pecans were in short supply in the South, making them very expensive. People would substitute oatmeal for the pecans, resulting in this delicious oatmeal pie that tastes similar to a pecan pie. I've only had pecan pie a handful of times in my life and I actually prefer this oatmeal pie over pecan pie. This recipe, however, doesn't come from a Southern cookbook, but from my Amish cookbook. I'm sure both know how to make a good pie!

This sweet pie bakes up soft and gooey. Every bite brought a different food to mind. A bowl of oatmeal with brown sugar. A cinnamon roll. Oatmeal Cookies.  Pecan pie. Oatmeal is one of those versatile ingredients that is in so many comfort foods of ours. And this pie is one of my new favorites.

How to Make Oatmeal Pie

You'll start with an unbaked pie shell. You'll find our favorite recipe here, but if you'd like a shortcut, use store-bought pie dough.  If you make our recipe, only make half of it since you'll just be needing a single crust.

Next comes the filling. This is one of the easiest pie fillings you'll come across: 3 beaten eggs, 2 tablespoons softened butter, 2/3 cup old-fashioned rolled oats, 2/3 cup milk, 1 teaspoon vanilla, 2/3 cup white sugar, and 1 cup of Domino® Pourable Light Brown Sugar. The brown sugar is what gives this pie an unbelievable taste.

Mix all of the ingredients and pour them into the unbaked pie shell. Bake in a 350-degree oven for 45-50 minutes. The center of the pie should look fully cooked and not seem "jiggly".The pie will come out soft, but not so soft that it can't be cut into slices. As you can see from the picture, there will be just a little bit of syrup that oozes out…perfect for spooning over a scoop of ice cream. And the ice cream is a must!

Other Oatmeal Recipes

Tools to Make This Pie

  • Pastry Cutter: I use this tool all the time. It cuts butter into flour perfectly for streusels, crusts and other pastries.
  • Pastry Mat: This silicone mat keeps your cupboard clean and makes rolling out pastries so easy.
  • Cute Pie Plate: Because if you're taking the time to make pie, serve it up in style!
  • Pie Crust Decorator Wheel: Makes beautiful edges to your pie!
  • Pastry Guide: Makes perfectly round crust, every time.
  • Crimped Cutter: To make beautiful lattice crusts!
  • Pie Carrier: To transport your pies easily!

Weekend Read // Issue 76

When Wilhen Hill Barrientos filed a complaint for being forced to work while he was sick, officers put him in medical segregation for chicken pox, a diagnosis that seemed unlikely since he'd contracted it as a child. He was left there for two months, prolonging the resolution of his immigration case.

When he refused to work a 2 a.m. shift because he was scheduled to also start a shift eight hours later, an officer threatened to move him to another cell. He relented out of fear of being placed a dormitory that was in such bad condition that it was known as "the Chicken Coop."

When he needed toilet paper, an officer told him to use his fingers.

Barrientos is an immigrant from Guatemala and one of nearly 2,000 men who are being detained at Stewart Detention Center in Lumpkin, Georgia. They're being held only for civil charges related to their immigration status but nonetheless have been swept up in the Trump administration's deportation dragnet.

Barrientos regularly works eight- to nine-hour shifts, seven days a week. For as little as $1 a day, detainees mop, sweep and wax floors; scrub toilets and showers; wash dishes; do laundry; clean medical facilities; and cook and prepare food.

The men are permitted to use their paltry wages to purchase basic necessities like toilet paper from the prison commissary – the "company store." They can't purchase those items anywhere else. If they refuse to work, they are threatened with losing the ability to buy anything: no phone cards to call home, no toothpaste, no soap, no food.

In fact, if they refuse to work, the men in Stewart can face referral for criminal prosecution or up to 30 days in solitary confinement. That's what happened to Shoaib Ahmed, a Bangladeshi immigrant who was held in solitary for 10 days after he allegedly said "no work tomorrow."

The men at Stewart are working under threat of physical restraint, serious harm, or abuse of the legal process. Nothing about that is "voluntary."

But it's a lucrative arrangement for CoreCivic, a private prison company with revenues of $1.8 billion last year. The company owns the prison and gets paid $62 a day, per detainee, from Immigration and Customs Enforcement to manage it.

In effect, according to a suit filed by the SPLC this week, CoreCivic is operating a forced labor scheme that enables it to drastically reduce its operating costs in order to maximize profits. The "voluntary" work program means it doesn't have to recruit from the local labor market, pay minimum wages, pay payroll taxes, provide benefits, or pay the costs of potential unionization — and it reduces the chance that the men detained there will be able to act as whistleblowers about Stewart's deplorable conditions.

Take the dorm called the "Chicken Coop." As our attorneys write:

There is no privacy. The lights in these dorms are on all day and night, requiring some detained immigrants to fold socks over their eyes in order to sleep. There is one bathroom in these dorms with three to four toilets, three to four urinals, and four sinks. This shared bathroom is often filthy, to the extent that the pod residents at times have to plug or cover their noses to avoid the overwhelming and festering stench. The showers in the open dormitories do not have temperature control and provide only extremely hot water.

Our class action is among those filed in three states against CoreCivic for horrific practices that — at least in Stewart — violate anti-trafficking laws for the sake of the company's bottom line.

Stewart has been called as "the black hole of America's immigration system." No wonder.

Our Southeast Immigrant Freedom Initiative will be on the ground in Stewart and other immigration prisons in the Deep South until detained immigrants there are treated with the humanity and decency that the Constitution and our nation's underlying values demand.

Kamala Harris (@SenKamalaHarris)
I'm part of a group of 39 senators and 131 representatives calling on Scott Pruitt to resign. This is the most Senators in U.S. history to sign on to a resolution formally calling for a cabinet official's resignation.

The bottom line: Pruitt is corrupt. He must go.
