Amish Molasses Oatmeal Pie

Casey
Crust: 3 – straightforward
Filling: 3 – it reminded me of a hot cereal, like cracked wheat or a cooked granola. Don’t                          know if that’s a good thing or a bad thing, so 3 it is.
Overall: 3 – very unexpected flavor/texture for a pie but not bad at all. It was rich and nutty like a pecan pie but with the consistency of a gooey muffin.

Crust:     4   It was good light and flakey.
Filling:    5   I liked the taste and texture. A little crunchy with a taste of molasses. 
Overall:  4+  You would not guess what flavor by looking at it. Nice 👍

Crust:    2  It seemed hard and dark.

Filling:   3  I am trying to be open-minded on the filling. It’s oatmeal and molasses for                               crying out loud.  Molasses is a strong flavor, it’s a little overwhelming in this pie.                     Too much of a good thing, unless you love molasses. Although, it has an                                   interesting crunchy candied top.
 Overall-3

Crust: 4.5
Filling: 3
Overall: 3
Very hardy, but not for everyone.

Tammy
Crust:    2  A little too thin.
Filling:   2  Love oatmeal. I thought I loved molasses, but realized I do…..in small doses.
Overall: 2  I will try this again, but try fancy molasses instead of black strap.

About Tammy

Blogging was not around the first 30 years of my life. Back in the old days, blogging review about something. Usually the person writing this review was a professional in their field. Since than blogging has changed how we share and learn information. Today bloggers are not necessarily professionals. They are usually ordinary people which want to share what they were impressed by or that have changed their lives. With trepidation I consulted my friends about being a blogger. Their first question was invariably, why? At first, I could not articulate why. Finally, I realize it was three events that happened to me within a month that led me to create this project. Please indulge me, and follow my train of thought as I attempt to connect the dots.create your own world. We've created a set of roleplaying First, over the summer I participated in a role play site. Within this site, there are hundreds of plots you can write for. Once you choose a plot you create a character profile. Then with other writers you collaborate on a storyline that supports the plot. I love this process. Not only did my writing improve, but fills a void I have when I’m not writing. Unfortunately, the story lines never last long enough and I’m left wanting more to write. Secondly, my husband believes we live on this vast farm. Through the years he has cultivate an enormous dwarf orchard which provides not only enough produce for us but also for ALL our neighbors, friends and family. The reality is we live on a normal size lot in the middle of a city. Nevertheless, we pick buckets and buckets of pears, cherries, apples, kiwis, plums and figs. Sadly, when I make pies from our abundance the only people around to eat it….is us. We honestly do not need the extra calories so I considered not baking any more pies. Than this project developed where I could share my pies. Thirdly, for the 3rd or 4th time I’ve watched the movie “Julie and Julia”. I have always marvel at how Julie makes herself this challenge of cooking every recipe (524 to be exact) from Julia Child’s “Mastering the Art of French Cooking." cook book all in one year. No matter her obstacles she preservers. For years I have secretly admired Julie. I’ve often wish I had the courage to do what she did. So because I don’t have enough to do in my life. Why not start a blog about something? After bouncing what seem like a million ideas I came up with this crazy project. A blog about pies. Tammy’s Pie Lab Sigh…… so my blog is about pies, pies and more pies. Here are my plans. I have picked the most unusually dessert pies I can find. As you can see this is not just a blog but also an experiment. I am going to cook one pie every week for a year. I have eight pie tasters that will critique each pie. To prevent any preconceived notions of how the pie should taste. I will withhold the pie’s name until after it is critique. Then I will post the history, the recipe, and the critiques of the pie. In addition, there will be some experiments, countless websites to explore and everything you wanted to know about pies and more.
