I haven’t written in quite some time because we’ve moved. Our new home is a snug little cottage on a southern bay. We love our new frugal beach life, but it’s taken me a while to get back to blogging.
The sunrises here lately have been particularly stunning. The image is one my DH took yesterday morning. It’s always amazing to me what God has wrought. Nothing can be more beautiful than the world He created.
I’ve called this post ‘Redneck Pie’ because this is the pie I made for my elderly mom to take to her weekly pot luck/ bingo game this week. I love baking pies. They’re so simple and homey. So every week I make one for Mom. She says this particular pie was very well-received. So I thought I’d share the easy recipe.
Red Neck Pie
3/4 of a cup each corn syrup & sugar
1 cup rolled oats
1/4 cup butter melted
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 unbaked pie shell
Whipped topping, vanilla, & powered sugar
Mix first 5 ingredients together and put in pie shell. Bake at 350 for 60 minutes or until a knife blade comes out clean. Cool. Mix the whipped topping with about a tsp of vanilla and about 1/2 cup of powdered sugar. Spread on top of baked pie. I took a baggie, filled it with the topping mixture, snipped one corner and piped little rosettes all over the top. It was very cute when I got finished :).
Hope you try this easy recipe and enjoy it. Mom said she didn’t have even a morsel left to bring home after the pot luck- so it must be pretty yummy!
