This recipe is a sweet and indulgent recipe for Oatmeal Scotchie Pie, but with a bit of a twist. It includes butterscotch morsels in the pie filling. That will bring robust and sweet flavor to the filling. The pie is easy to make and made even easier by using a commercial pie crust. That should speed up the making of this pie. There is oatmeal in the mix, too, which means a buttery taste and nubbly texture on top of the creamy, sweet and smooth filling. Yum.

This pie will taste best served at room temperature because it is just so sweet. Both the Canadian province of Quebec and the US state of Louisiana have pies to rival this Oatmeal Scotchie Pie. In Quebec, it is just called a sugar pie, and that is what it is, unrelenting sugar in a home baked pie shell. Yum. The Louisiana version is similar, but also usually adds pecans to the top of the pie. Again, yum. All three of these pies are quite similar introducing variations based on their local cultures. And all three are fabulous.

This is not a difficult pie to make at all, especially if you buy the pie shell to help speed things up. This recipe also includes the option of adding cayenne pepper. If you have not had heat against something this sweet, consider waiting until the pie is cooked, and then adding a tiny amount of cayenne just to one piece. Of course this is not a lot like what it will taste like when the cayenne is properly blended in to the mix, but it will help you to decide whether you like something piquant against something this sweet. It is an unusual blend of flavors that may appeal to some, but not others. Do try the recipe. It is quick, easy and affordable. Serve it with ice cream, to cut the sweet. Enjoy!
