Creativity at it’s best! The cherries are icing, as are the strips on top of the pie! And the icing is put on top of many cupcakes! Kudos to the artist!
One of my favorite pies, and my wife does a bang-up job of baking it. We enjoyed it on Thanksgiving Day!!  I had a request for the recipe, so I hope in the editing it is posted again!

Oatmeal Pie Recipe:

1 Unbaked 9″ Pie Crust

1/4 C. Butter or Margarine

1/2 C. Sugar

1/2 tsp. Cinnamon

1/2 Cloves

1/4 tsp Salt

1 C. Light Corn Syrup

3 Eggs

1 C Oatmeal

Cream the butter and sugar: add spices and salt.  Stir in the corn syrup.  Add the eggs, one at a time, stirring well after each addition.  Stir in the oatmeal and pour into the pie shell.  Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for about an hour, or till a knife inserted into the center comes out clean.

For a Mother’s Day meal the Father’s did the meal, and this was my contribution! Being married to the world’s best baker, surely gave me an edge in this new endeavor!

MY WIFE DID A WONDERFUL JOB OF BAKING AND DECORATING THESE CHOCOLATE CAKES.  I can vouch that they are the best chocolate cake I have eaten.  Hotel Dupont in Wilmington, Delaware makes a super Black Forest Cake, but that is in a different category!
