Shoofly Pie

Cassie *


I made this delicious pie for my of her very favorites...when I was a kid, we used to go to the nearest "Dutch Pantry Restaurant" just for the Shoofly Pie...

This is a wet bottom, not the cake type...reminds me a lot of pecan pie without the pecans...

I usually always make my own crust, but had a store bought to use up...this pie is much better with a homemade ...I actually removed the crust on this pie, as I don't like how dark store bought gets, so this one looks more like a!

This pie is wonderful with a scoop of vanilla ice cream...Yum!!
