I have made this quite often for a dessert. To save time you can bake the oatmeal/butter mixture, and then crumble hours in advance, just make certain to crumble the mixture while it is still hot. I have even sprinkled packaged toffee baking bits on top...yummmmmm! Prep time includes chilling time.

5 stars all the way! I really gilded the lily by using a good butter pecan ice cream.
