Is Homemade Pie Crust Easy to Make?
Pie crust is one of those things that so many people struggle with. It seems like an awful lot of work and mess when you think about it. Opening a package of pre-made shells sure sounds a lot simpler. No judgment here, I have done the same many times. However, homemade pie crust really isn’t difficult! Not to mention this crust is way better than anything store-bought!
Why Add Oatmeal to Pie Crust?
Oatmeal in pie crust makes a delicious crumbly slightly nutty and sweet crust. Some of my kids prefer this over plain pie crust. The flavor really compliments just about any filling!
How to Add Oatmeal to a Pie Crust?
In order to add the oats, you can do a couple of different things. You can use a mini food processor and grind up the oats. This will make some of the oats into powder (like flour), there will also be some bits of oats left. I made one like this, and we kind of liked the oats left in bigger pieces. This makes a more rustic crust. I also made some crusts using the blender to grind up the oats. The blender made all of the oats like flour. This crust was also very good, just smoother and more like a usual pie crust, not as rustic.
