This recipe was developed for persons with nut allergies that would still love to have the taste of that good ol' southern pecan pie without the pecans. Even those I have served this too do not have any idea that the pecans are missing from this pie even my southern son-in-law. So, let's not tell!
Cream butter to soften. Add sugar gradually and cream till fluffy. Add syrup and salt. Beat well. Add eggs, one at a time, beating after each addition. Stir in coconut and oatmeal. Pour into pie shell. Bake at 350 for 50 minutes or until knife comes out clean. Cool before serving.
