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!!

How to Make Shoofly Pie


  • 1Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

    In a bowl, combine flour, brown sugar and shortening. Using fingertips or pastry blender, rub or combine these ingredients together until the shortening resembles small crumbs. Set aside.
  • 2In another bowl, dissolve the baking soda in the boiling water. Add the corn syrup and molasses. Stir to blend.
  • 3Pour filling into the shell and sprinkle the crumb mixture over the top.
  • 4Bake in the middle of the oven for 10 minutes. Reduce the heat to 350 degrees F and bake for 25 minutes more. The filling should be set, but still quiver when the pan is tapped. Do not over bake.
