Good place to start...have one major point of concern though. Not enough filling for a 9" homemade shell. Might try it with an 8" but will probably stick to my next option: increasing ingredient proportions. Did so for the 2nd attempt and it worked out much better. Took both sugars to a full cup but will probably back the granulated sugar down again, flour went to a full 1/4 cup, oats to 1/3 cup, used 3 T. butter, 2 med. eggs, 1/3 cup milk, left vanilla at 1 T. Almost satisfied with the 9" pie. Must say that the 1/3 C. ground pecans I sprinkled over the top before baking MADE the pie! Took about 40 min. to bake. If anyone tries to incorporate maple syrup in this, don't hesitate to say how it worked! I figure the richness can't get any worse so...why not try it!!! P.S. on October 2nd: It really nagged at me why I struggled with the quantity of this filling...so I searched until I located an old Pyrex 208 pan (7 1/2" diameter, inside rim) to see if THAT was the answer! IT MOST DEFINITELY IS! Now I've upped the stars to "5" and am happier than ever to have a recipe that makes a "little" pie! This stuff is SO rich, a little goes a long way! (Still couldn't resist tossing 2T. ground pecans over the top!)
Good! My crust came out burnt - I should have put foil over the edge to prevent that. I topped it with Cool Whip and a drizzle of Hershey syrup, but I think it would be perfect with just a scoop of ice cream. :)
My husband is picky, picky, picky. He ate 2 pieces after lunch, 2 after dinner. Same day. It's a HIT at my house!
