Oklahoma Oatmeal Pie Is a Slice of Paradise and a Delicious Addition to All Holiday Seasons

"Our friend Charlene always talked about her mom's wonderful oatmeal pie," writes Kat and Steph Rodosevich. "It never seemed so wonderful to me until Charlene brought one to our Thanksgiving dinner. Now the holidays wouldn't seem complete without this delicious addition. Charlene likes her pie with vanilla ice cream and we prefer our slices piled high with real whipped cream and a sprinkle of nutmeg.
