Since we're all becoming bakers these days, I wanted to take a stab at this gem of a pie. My sister raves about Four & Twenty Bakery in Brooklyn, NY and after she told me about her recent pie experience, I had to find a way to try them for myself. This Black Bottom Oatmeal Pie is a knockoff of their version — it's very sweet, similar to how a pecan pie is — so feel free to adjust as you prefer for taste (and if you're minding your sugar!). My good friend, Registered Dietician-Nutritionist Willow Jarosh adjusted by cutting sugar, and adding toasted coconut, walnuts and cinnamon. This was also my first attempt in a while to make homemade pie crust - I used the bakery's All Butter Pie Crust (omg) recipe as well. All details below.
We have to eat everyday, don't we?
