Surprise Pies

I have been looking for a recipe for surprise pies. My mother made these when I was young. I think they were made in a cupcake pan (graham crust?) and the filling was chewy and had chocolate chips in it. I've searched everywhere to no avail. I know somebody, somewhere, has heard of these. Help!

Try this-

Surprise pie

1 9" pie shell, unbaked

1/4 cup bitter or margerine, softened

1/2 cup browm or white sugar

1 cup dark or light corn syrup

1/4 tsp salt

1/2 cup quick oats

1/2 cup shredded coconut 1/2 cup chocolate chips

prepare pie crust.

cream butter, add sugar and cream until fluffy.

add corn syrup, and mix well.

beat eggs separately, then add to sugar mixture.

fold in oats, chips, and coconut.

pour into pie shell.

bake 50 min. at 350 degrees, or until knife comes out clean.

This is how the recipe was given to me: i usually skip the coconut, and use either white sugar/light syrup or brown sugar/dark syrup. Makes a very sweet but delicious dessert.

This is a recipe that Paul Deen (FoodNetwork) made on one of her shows. You could probably adjust the recipe to make cupcakes:
