"Shoofly pie is a moist, dark pie with a crumble top, made with molasses. It is low in fat (the crust contains nearly all the fat), and does not have an overwhelming sweet taste. It can be topped with whipped cream. This is a Southern dish."

  3. Bake at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) for 35 minutes.
