Oh, I hate giving so few stars. But this just didn't jive with our tastes like I thought it would. It was wayyyy too sweet, it didn't set up & the oatmeal was still hard. Where did I go wrong? Was I supposed to use quick oats? I like the idea but I'm sorry this didn't work out better. :(

This pie really is so good! I was just going to have ONE bite in order to rate, I had to eat the WHOLE slice. I wouldn't mind eating the WHOLE PIE! I do admit and don't know how much it changed the pie, I didn't have enough clear karo and had to fill my cup with the dark. I ended up with a little more dark than lite. If someone thinks it makes a tremendous difference, I will be glad to make it again. But at this point, with my change, I am still going to give it 5 stars. YUMMY!!!! Thank you for a wonderful pie recipe!
