A couple days ago I experimented with baking in my new oven. I decided to try making a black-bottom oatmeal pie. I got the recipe from a Midwest inspired cookbook by Amy Thielen. The pie was amazing! I used the best butter and cream and chocolate I could find. It was scrumptious. I ended up sharing a couple pieces with some workers from the city who were installing some new floodwater pipes in our front yard yesterday. The rest was quickly consumed by family members.
