Wonderful crust for fruit fillings or custards
Top-ranked recipe named "Oatmeal Pie Crust"
1. Combine flour & baking soda; stir in oats & brown sugar. Cut in softened butter, mixing well, using your hands if needed to combine all ingredients thoroughly.
2. Press into two 8-inch pie pans or a 9x13-inch baking pan.
3. If using precooked filling, bake pie at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
NOTE: When using fresh fruits, such as peaches for apples, precook in pan with butter and brown sugar, along with 1 teaspoon lemon juice, cooking down until thickened. You don't want the fruit watery when pouring into crust. For 3 cups of fruit, use 1/2 cup butter and 1 cup brown sugar.
Will make enough crust for TWO 8-inch pies or used as a crust for bars (ie: fig, date, lemon, etc)
Recipe can be halved or doubled easily.
