Poor-Man's Pecan Pie

The Oats form a crusty top very much like pecans, and provide contrast for the dark, rich layer below.

INGREDIENTS1 recipe pastry for a 9 inch single crust pie
4 eggs
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 cup dark corn syrup
1 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 pinch salt
1 cup rolled oats

Beat the eggs. Stir in melted butter, syrup, sugar, salt, and vanilla. Mix thoroughly. Stir in oats. Pour filling into crust.
Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 35 to 40 minutes.

My condolances on your loss. What a brilliant way to remember her. I can't wait to try some of these. The pecan pie looks amazing! And the shortbread looks easy to make - something I've been searching for.
