Pie Recipe

This Pennsylvania Dutch recipe is a favorite to Pennsylvania Dutch Area....

I personally think the gooier the bottom the better.

GOOEY SHOO-FLY PIE

Syrup:

1 cup molasses

1/2 cup brown sugar

3 eggs

1 cup hot water

1 teaspoon baking soda (dissolved in hot water)

Crumbs:

2 1/2 cups flour

1 cup brown sugar

1/3 cup shortening (Crisco)

Combine ingredients for syrup mixture. Put half of the syrup in the piecrust then add half of crumbs. Add remaining syrup and other half of crumbs. Bake 10 minutes at 400 degrees then reduce to 350 degrees and bake another 50 minutes. Makes 2 8-inch pies

********************

While the name sounds strange, the shoo-fly pie is delicious. I have tried a few different recipes for Shoo Fly Pie and choose this one to share with you. I was told that this pie got it's name because when the pies were placed on the window sill to cool after coming out of the oven. Flies were attracted to the mollasses. So they would shoo the flies away…"Shoo Fly Pie " then became its name.
