Fruit pies are always best when paired with oatmeal... in my opinion. And, sometimes, I'm lazy and don't like to make "real" pie crusts because I haven't perfected the technique yet and easily get annoyed at the dough.
So, I came across a really easy pie crust, and it uses oatmeal!! It was love at first sight.
Oatmeal Pie Crust
3/4 C flour (you can mix white and whole wheat)
1/2 C quick cook oats
1/2 tsp. salt
3 T oil
4 T ice cold water
Combine flour, oats and salt in a mixing bowl.
Slowly drizzle in the oil, mixing with a fork until crumbly.
Add ice water and continue stirring until dough gets sticky. Pour dough into a 9-inch pie plate, and press to form a crust.
To pre-bake the shell, prick with a fork several times and bake at 400 for 10 minutes until light golden brown.
Otherwise, fill according to pie directions.
