Super Fast Pie Crust (or Vegan & Gluten Free)

This recipe is really fast and easy and very good.  It is easily adapted to be vegan and/or gluten free.  Just swap out the butter for your favourite vegan spread (butter substitute) for gluten free you must make sure that the oats you use are gluten free, it must say that on the label, otherwise there is probably gluten in there.

For the crust:

1/3 cup butter (or margarine)

Rolled oats (grind these in a food processor) then measure to about 1& 1/4 cups

1/4 cup packed brown sugar

1/4 tsp cinnamon

Melt butter and stir into the rest of the ingredients.  Press into a 9″ pie plate and bake at 375F for about 10 minutes.  Let cool completely before filling.

We made a custard and strawberry pie.  You can make your own custard, but we were in a hurry so we used a canned variety.  Then top with strawberries, you can use any other fresh berry for this too.

Our other pie we filled with butterscotch pudding and topped with whipped cream.  You can use any instant pudding for this as well.
