If you like oatmeal cookies this recipe is almost too good to be true!   
There was an excess of "dough" so I baked the trimmings on a cookie sheet 
after the pie came out of the oven and we enjoyed the "cookies" as much as 
the pie.

  Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
--------  ------------  --------------------------------
   2 2/3  cups          all-purpose flour
   1      cup           old fashioned rolled oats
     2/3  cup           sugar
   1      teaspoon      ground cinnamon
   1      teaspoon      baking soda
     3/4  cup           unsweetened applesauce
   1                    egg white
   1 1/2  teaspoons     vanilla
   7      large         tart apples -- peeled and sliced
     1/2  cup           sugar
     3/4  cup           apple juice
   2      teaspoons     ground cinnamon
   2      teaspoons     vanilla extract
   1      tablespoon    cornstarch

CRUST:  Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Sprau 9-inch pie pan with cooking 
spray.  In large bowl, mix flour, oats, 2/3 cup sugar, cinnamon, and baking 
soda.  In medium bowl, mix 3/4 cup applesauce, egg white and vanilla.  Add 
applesauce mixture to flour mixture and stir until well blended- it may be 
easier to use your hands.  If mixture seems too dry to roll out, stir in up 
to 1/4 cup more applesauce.
      On lightly floured surface, using lightly floured roling pin, roll out 
half of oat mixture to form 12-inch circle.  Reserve remaining mixture for 
top of pie.  If necessary, press dough into pan with your fingers.  Bake 
until set, 10 to 13 minutes.
     Meanwhile, in saucepan, combine apples, sugar, 1/2 cup apple juice, 
cinnamon and vanilla.  Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until 
apples are tender, 5 to 10 minutes.  In cup, mix cornstarch and remaining 1/4 
cup apple juice.  Add to hot apple mixture and cook, stirring constantly, 
until thickened, about 4 minutes.  Remove from heat.  Spoon apple mixture 
into baked crust.
     On well-floured surface, using floured rolling pin, roll out remaining 
oat mixture to form 11-inch circle.  Pierce with fork.  Lightly fold in half, 
place over filling and unfold.  Fold top edge under; crimp edge.  Set pie on 
baking hseet to catch drips.  Bake until crust is firm, 15 to 20 minutes.  
Serve warm or chilled.
