Last Wednesday was National Pie Day (at least one of them) and according to similar sources, January has been National Oatmeal Month. Makes sense to me, given that this weather makes me want a diet of nothing but hot oatmeal and pie.
Want to combine the two in a last silly-food-holiday hurrah? Try this Chocolate Oatmeal Pie, which is our own version of the original SE favorite by Brooklyn pie shop Four and Twenty Blackbirds.
In short: flaky all-butter crust, rich chocolate ganache, and gooey oatmeal that gets all caramelized and crisp on top. January, you'll live on in our choc-oat bellies for months to come.
