Grandma's Oatmeal Pie - A Guest Post by MiMi


    I got this recipe from my friend Lynn.  She has baked a couple for her family and posted a picture of them on Facebook.  I saw it and just had to get the recipe from her.  Her daughter-in-law verified that it's awesome.  She doesn't even like coconut either.  Lynn told me that she got this recipe from her grandmother.  Her grandmother had a way of changing original recipes to make them her own.  She is not sure where the original recipe came from.  Remember, this was before we had food blogs and Pinterest and things.  Lynn said that her grandmother was a wonderful cook and baker.  She believed very strongly in the quality of her dishes.  She believed her recipes were the best and would stand up for them.  I'd love to see her in a baking competition.  It sounds like she is a woman who would hold her own.



    I made this for Carlee's Mother's Day dessert buffet.  It seems fitting to use a vintage recipe that was handed down from a grandmother to her granddaughter.  Who knows? Lynn's grandma might have gotten this from her mother.  Maybe Jax will bake this someday and know that he got the recipe from his MiMi.  Lynn's grandchildren are able to say that they got the recipe from their great-great-grandma. I love the thought of that!
