1/3 cup butter, chilled
½ cup uncooked old-fashioned oats

2 cups skim milk
3 Tbsp cornstarch
2 egg yolks
½ tsp vanilla
¾ cup Wild Huckleberry Preserve
1 Tbsp corn syrup

Cover with plastic wrap. Chill for 1 hour. Heat oven to 375°. Roll out dough to fit into a 9" tart pan. Prick the bottom of the crust several times with fork. Chill 15 minutes then bake the crust for 15-18 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool completely.
In a 2 qt saucepan, combine milk, remaining ½ cup sugar, cornstarch and salt. Cook over medium heat for 7-10 minutes or until mixture thickens and bubbles, stirring constantly with a whisk. Remove from heat. Stir a small amount of hot milk mixture into egg yolks. Blend egg yolks into milk mix. Cook over medium-low heat for 2-4 minutes or until custard thickens slightly, stirring constantly (Do not boil). Cool slightly then stir in vanilla. Place sheet of plastic wrap directly on surface of custard. Refrigerate until completely cooled.
In a 1 qt saucepan, combine preserves and corn syrup. Cook over medium-low heat just until preserves melt, stirring frequently, about 1 minute. Cool. Set glaze aside.
