This dish actually sounds yummy once you read the recipe. But, the name takes some getting used to.
When American settlers were first introduced to the New World tomato fruit, they naturally thought that the way to serve them was in a sweet dessert pie. Recipes of the era would call for the same kinds of spices used in an apple pie, but strangely it never caught on like apple pie did.
The name sounds odd and that’s why we have trouble believing that this recipe ever became popular. But, these 4 ingredient oatmeal bars are a familiar (and crumbly) similar to those we ate growing up.
