Granny's Mock Pecan Pie

My grandmother-in-law gave this recipe to me back in 1978. Years that pecans are just too expensive (like THIS year - 2011) I like to make this pie. It tastes like the real deal and is perfect for those with nut allergies or to serve on April Fool's Day!

Cook:
45 Min
Method:
Bake

Ingredients

2
eggs
3/4 c
sugar
2/3 c
butter, melted
3/4 c
maple syrup
2 tsp
vanilla extract
3/4 c
quick cooking oats
2/3 c
coconut, flaked
1/2 tsp
salt
1
unbaked pie shell

Step-By-Step

1In a bowl combine all of the ingredients together and pour into the pie shell.
2Set the pie on a baking sheet (this helps conduct heat to the bottom of the pie and crisp it up. A trick I learned from Granny).
3Bake for 15 minutes in a preheated 400*F oven then reduce heat to 350*F and bake 30 minutes longer.
4Loosely cover top with foil if it is getting too dark but should be okay. Everyone's oven is a little different. Enjoy!!
