Directions

  1. In a small bowl, mix flour, brown sugar, and butter or margarine together until it resembles course corn meal. Measure out 1/2 cup, and set aside for topping.
  2. In a separate bowl, beat the egg. Mix in molasses and cold water. Add crumb mixture, and stir thoroughly. Stir baking soda into hot water, and then add to the molasses mixture. Mix well. Pour filling into pie crust, and evenly sprinkle the reserved topping on top.
  3. Bake at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) for 35 minutes.

My 87-year-old grandmother swears the secret to a successful pie is using King Syrup not Bryer Rabbit Molasses or any other Dark molasses which makes a huge difference in the taste. Changes to the ingredients: She uses Crisco in lieu of the butter (a total of 2T. per pie) and more brown sugar 1/4 c. more than this recipe states. She also reserves more topping so it doesn't sink/absorb into the pie (1 cup). To prevent a runny pie, she bakes it for 5 mins. at 400 then 25 mins. at 350. I hope this helps the runny/taste questions. Definitely a PA Dutch keeper.

This recipe came out too runny. This was my first attempt at shoofly pie. It was very easy to make, but it's possible I did something wrong. The edges came out pretty good, so maybe it just needed to bake longer.

I have been searching for this recipe for months and was happy to find it. It is one of the most wonderful pies to make if your a molasses fan!

This was a nice gooey version of shoofly pie--"gooey" in a good way. Perhaps the person who didn't like it used blackstrap molasses? It has a nice, rich molasses flavor, but not overpowering, with the mild molasses I used.

I'm sorry but this was disgusting. The pie tasted like molasses out of a bottle!!! Please, save your time, ingredients and money by not making this recipe
