oatmeal scotchie pie recipeSometimes, a lot of times, my most inspired ideas come to me in the shower.  I don’t know what it is about the shower that gives me such good ideas.  Maybe it the the quiet, or the warm water, or the sound of trickling water?  Whatever it is, most of the good ideas that I have gotten recently have come to me, late at night, in the shower.  Example:  Oatmeal Scotchie Pie.  I am sure that I am not the first person to make a pie out of this popular cookie, but it was a new idea to me, and that is all that matters.  My best friend used to make these cookies for us all the time, and when I have one of those cookies I always think of her.  They also happen to be my husband’s second favorite cookie.

This recipe is a hodge podge of a few recipes that I put together to make this pie.  Next time, I will make the crust a little bit thinner.  It tasted delicious, but it was a little hard to cut.  It is an oatmeal cookie after all, I should have figured that out while I was making it.  All-in-all, I was really proud of myself that a good idea turned into a really good pie.

Edited to add: I realize that there are eggs in the ingredients picture, but not in the recipe.  I changed my mind about the recipe and forgot to take a new picture, the recipe below is correct.  I even remade it just to be sure.  Sorry for the confusion!

    oh. my. god. it’s amazing! i’ve never seen such a beautiful and delicious pie. i definitely have to try it :)

  2. Becca says:

    This looks pretty, and it combines two awesome desserts: pies and cookies. Oatmeal cookies happen to be my second all-time favorite kind of cookie (as long as there’s no raisins in it). nd the pudding looks delicious! I’ve never had butterscotch pudding but the color is fabulous!

  3. Georgiana says:

    Ah Mah Gah, that looks amazing! Seeing oats in a bowl with brown sugar is the ultimate diet-breaker for me. Your reflection on the crust being too hard to cut made me think that making a more flapjack-y base might work well (more chewy?). Wait, I’m not sure that flapjacks mean the same in the US as they do in England. Here they are a sort of chewy, syrupy oat bar (very, very yummy). Anyway, just a thought.

  5. what a brilliant idea! i just recently made oatmeal creme pies from scratch and loved them…the only thing better might be scotchies…can’t wait to try the pie version!

  6. Are you kidding me?? This pie is gorgeous! I am going to make it this weekend!
    Funny, I also get all of my good ideas in the shower too! It must be because it’s quite and relaxing so we are probably able to hear ourselves think rather than hear ourselves talk.

  7. Deanna says:

    I’m just going to venture a guess that your best ideas come to you in the shower because its a kid free zone. Just a thought. This sounds amazing. The only other pie I’ve seen with an oatmeal crust was the Crack pie at Momofuko Milk Bar.

  8. Deborah says:

    I have to laugh because I’ve said the same thing many times!! I think the shower is the best place for me because it’s one of the only times that I’m not overtaken by kids – it’s practically my only “me” time! This pie sounds absolutely amazing. And if it’s been done before, I haven’t seen it!

  9. Cassie says:

    I love oatmeal cookies with butterscotch chips. This is right up my alley!

  10. Brandon says:

    My aunt makes Oatmeal Scotchies (among a vast collection of other delicious cookies) every year at Christmas. Your pie looks great, the filling beautiful, and your crust is perfect in every way.

    • bakedbree says:

      Thank you Brandon! What else does she make?

      • Brandon says:

        She has a name for them all, but of course I can’t remember any but the oatmeal scotchies! Let’s see… the classic Hershey’s Kiss pressed into a peanut butter cookie, toffee bars, pecan pie squares, gingersnaps, the best sugar cookies I’ve ever tasted, and these rice crispy treats colored red and shaped into strawberries with green icing for the top, along with more that I can’t recall at the moment. They were my great-grandmother’s recipes, with the exception of the Hershey’s Kiss cookie!

    ????
    otherwise looks yummers.

  14. Stephke says:

    Looks totally delicious and so easy peasy! :D

  15. How creative! I’m not really much of a pie fan unless it’s Southern Pecan Pie but you’ve inspired me to try this technique. Thank you.

  16. Lauren says:

    I see eggs in a photo, but don’t see them in the instructions. Did I miss something? Thank you!

  17. Hi, Bree! This pie looks amazing! I haven’t had an oatmeal scotchie cookie before. Sounds like I’m missing out. This recipe sounds heavenly! Especially the oatmeal cookie crust. I can’t wait to try my hand at it soon.

    Cheers!

    I love checking into your blog now and again. I discovered you when I saw (and made) the white chocolate ginger cookies. I usually don’t like ginger, but these were AMAZING!!! As oatmeal scotchies are my hubby’s fave, I am super excited to make this too. I’m not a super baker, so maybe I just don’t know, but when do you add the rest of the milk mixture? You mention adding 1/2 c to the suger on low heat… do I add the rest of the milk once the mixture comes back up to a boil?
    Can’t wait to try it out!
    Thanks,
    Jen
