A very sweet, very comforting tart. Do try to locate the Golden Syrup required for it.

Very unusual pie. I wasn't sure whether I would like this pie or not...but since I had purchased golden syrup online prior to playing this game, I decided to try it. I had never heard of a tart/pie made with oatmeal. The big surprise was that the taste of the lemon juice and lemon zest was such a strong flavor in this pie. I expected the Golden Syrup to be the predominate flavor. Fortunately the lemon helps the pie from being overly sweet. Not sure I will ever make it again due to the unavailability to purchase the golden syrup where I live except online. Made for ZWT #6 - 2010
