Make a pie shell. Whip together 1 cup sugar and 1/2 cup butter. Add 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, 1/2 teaspoon clove power and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Mix in 1 cup dark or light corn syrup. Beat in one egg at at time (3 eggs). Mix in 1 cup quick cook oatmeal. Pour into pie shell and bake at 350 for 1 hour. This is a lot like pecan pie so you could probably substitute pecans for the oatmeal.
