Milk Flitcher Pie

Recipe by  

"This is a very old Pennsylvania Dutch treat, a sort of milk and sugar pie made usually for children, as a way to use up leftover pie dough. This makes an odd-looking pie, but it tastes better than it looks. I have heard this called many names, among them Slap Jack, Flippy, Shlop Boi, Flitche, Flabby, or even Stingy Pie!"

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. Combine the flour and sugar in the pie shell, and mix together using your fingers. Pour in milk, and again, mix with your fingers to avoid damaging the crust. Dribble in the molasses, and dot with butter. Sprinkle cinnamon over the top.
  3. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes in the preheated oven, then turn the oven down to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C), and bake for an additional 15 minutes, or until the filling is set, and the top is browned.

I'm sorry to post such a negative review about this pie, but it was just awful. I followed the directions, but the pie never did set-up. I continued cooking for almost another hour and it was still very runny. After it cooled I tasted the runny filling and was very disappointed. I would not recommend this recipe.

My Grandmom was born in Reading PA so she had lots of PA Dutch recipes and this was my favorite. This pie was always runny when she made it.She made this every Thanksgiving. I will say it isn't for everyone. My Grandmom and I were the only people who ate it in the whole house. I think it is delicious and brings back great memories.

It was so neat to see this recipe! My grandmother who is Pennsylvania Dutch made this for me as a child when we had left over scraps. She had a mini pie tin and would make me a "milk shlope." This recipe brought back wonderful memories, thank you!

This should be called "Disaster Runny Molasses Pie"! I hate to write a bad review but I think this is warranted to help prevent others from trying this waste of time recipe out. I grew up in Pennsylvania and have fond memories of our family making milk pies. This pie will not even come close to setting so your finished pie will be a liquid pie. 1 cup of molasses is at least 3/4 cup too much! To top it off the thing boiled over creating a huge molasses mess in my oven. My saving grace was that I found another milk pie recipe out on the web that I made along with this one that turned out good. I'm going to consult with some family members about milk pies next time I have a go at them.

My Grandmother made us these on baking day when there was left over pie dough. I recently started making them for my kids and grandchild they love it.
