You Asked For It: Oatmeal pie makes a quick dessert
By Ellen Folkman, Times Correspondent
Published December 5, 2007
Susan Tamme wanted a recipe for oatmeal pie. Many readers remember this pie and shared recipes. Naomi Fisher shares a version that includes coconut. Ruth Fraser's version has a variety of spices for a slightly different flavor. Ruth says her family prefers her oatmeal pie over pecan pie. Carolyn Blocker's recipe is more along the traditional lines. All three recipes are very easy to make for a quick dessert.
Mary Kilgore would like a recipe for chocolate biscotti that is dipped in white chocolate.
Evert Lawrence is requesting the Athenian Gardens potato salad recipe.
Donna Bialaszewski would like a recipe from O'Keefe's restaurant in Clearwater for their hot brown casserole. She says it's made with a piece of bread, turkey or ham, tomato and bacon. It's served in individual casserole dishes and covered with a sauce.
