Why is this called "Oatmeal Pie" when there is not oatmeal in it? Just wondering or was something missed from this recipe and how much of it,it so. It looks more like some king of chess pie. Just saying...

Lee I also was looking for oatmeal. Was the pie crust pre-baked or just shaped into an 8" pan? You say to pour the ingredients into the crust, and bake at 325 degrees ---- but for how long? The ingredients (aside from the missing oatmeal) are listed with the 2/3 cup sugar and 2/3 cup light or dark Karo (syrup?). In your first instruction you say, "Melt butter and sugars. Let cool." Do you mean to just melt the butter with the granulated sugar, or also add the Karo - too? If those are also the start of the filling, then instruction #2 says "to beat the eggs and remaining ingredients (vanilla all that's left). Then just to - beat well." Are you calling for beating the melted butter mix and eggs together? I am not intending to criticize - I would like to try the "poor man's pecan pie", but I feel that I am not getting all the ingredients as well as the full instructions.
Tina Swain put oatmeal, coconut, and walnuts in her pie and was happy to have what her pie yielded. (Sounds great to me - but, it's not the "poor man's pecan pie"). I would appreciate seeing her pie recipe, as it sounds very tasty to me.
Lee, I hope you will re-read your recipe, and tell us what it is we are missing? I am fully ready to admit that I may just not be making the correct connections - aside from the missing oatmeal. Please will you add the rest of the ingredients and instructions to this recipe? Thanks for posting this on JAP. There are lots of people with special talent in pies, who may be able to help if you need it. LOL :-)
