When you have unexpected guests and want something tasty to give them with coffee or tea, or you just get a craving for something sweet that is fast and easy to make, this pie is perfect! It uses stuff from the pantry and goes together fast and is also quite tasty. I got the recipe from a woman I used to work with.
1 cup flour
3/4 cup oatmeal
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 stick softened butter
1 can pie filling, any flavor
spices to taste (cinnamon and a bit of clove for apple; cinnamon, clove and nutmeg for peach or apricot)
Mix together the flour, oatmeal, brown sugar and spices if using. Cut the butter into the dry ingredients until you have a crumbly mixture. Press about 2/3 of the mixture into the bottom and sides of an 8-inch pie plate. Add the pie filling and then sprinkle the remaining crumb mixture on top. Bake at 350 for about 25 minutes or until golden brown. Cool before cutting. Enjoy!
