Amen. Let's Eat!
Sunday, October 15, 2006 Oprah Pie

This recipe was featured on Oprah. The lady who invented it won a million bucks for the recipe. The times I have made it, people have agreed it was worth that prize. Quick, easy, and sweet.

1 pre-made pie crust (if you're all "I can make a homemad pie crust" then go for it, you domestic snob) :)

1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
3/4 cup corn syrup
1/8 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
3 eggs, lightly beaten
4 Nature Valley Oats 'n' Honey granola bars, crushed
1/4 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup walnuts (I think walnuts taste like bumcrack so I use pecans)
1/4 cup quick cooking oats

Heat oven to 350°F. In large microwavable bowl, microwave butter on High 50 to 60 seconds or until melted. Stir in brown sugar and corn syrup until blended. Beat in salt, vanilla and eggs. Stir crushed granola bars, walnuts, oats and chocolate chips into brown sugar mixture. Pour into crust.
Bake 40 to 50 minutes or until filling is set and crust is golden brown. During last 15 to 20 minutes of baking, cover crust edge with strips of foil to prevent excessive browning. Cool at least 30 minutes before serving.
Serve warm, at room temperature or chilled with whipped cream or ice cream. Store in refrigerator.
