And thanks to General Mills, they sent me a bunch of goodies to try my hand at the Pillsbury Bake-Off 100 Winning Recipes. I love these collections, because they always make it EASY for me to recreate something delicious for my family, with the help of great General Mills and Pillsbury family or products. Which one did I choose? I chose one of the winning $1 million dollar recipes of course! And now I’m sharing it with you!
Oats N’ Honey Granola Pie Recipe (2004 $1 Million Dollar Pillsbury Bake-Off Recipe Winner)
- 1 box of Pillsbury refrigerated pie crusts, softened as directed on the box
- 1/2 cup of butter
- 1/2 cup of packed brown sugar
- 3/4 cup of corn syrup
- 1/8 teaspoon of salt
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 3 eggs, lightly beaten
- 4 Nature Valley Oats N’ Honey crunchy granola bars (2 pouches from 8,9 oz box), crushed
- 1/2 cup chopped walnuts (to change it up, I used Macadamia Nuts!)
- 1/4 cup quick-cooking or old-fashioned oats
- 1/4 cup semi-sweet or milk chocolate baking chips
- OPTIONAL: Whipped Cream or Ice Cream
- Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Place pie crust in 9-inch glass pie plate as directed on box for One-Crust Filled Pie.
- In Large microwavable bowl, microwave butter on High 50 to 60 seconds or until melted. Stir in brown sugar and corn syrup untile blended. Beat in salt, vanilla and eggs. Stir crushed granola bars, nuts, oats and baking chips into brown sugar mixture. Pour into crust-lined pan.
- Bake 40 to 50 minutes or until filling is set and crust is golden brown. During last 15 to 20 minutes of baking, cover crust edge with strips of foil to prevent excessive browning. Cool at least 30 minutes before serving. Serve warm, at room temperature or chilled with whipped cream or ice cream. Cover and refrigerate any remaining pie.
How was it? According to my husband it was one of the top pies he’s ever eaten in his life. And he’s very particular when it comes to his pies!!! I couldn’t believe how easy it was to make too. So in my book, definitely worth the $1 million dollar prize!
