Amish Shoofly Pie

Here's another very traditional Amish Pie recipe:


Shoofly pie is practically synonymous with the Amish.  This molasses-based pie with a crumbly surface comes in both the wet-bottom and dry-bottom varieties.
For the crumb part:
  • ¼ cup shortening
  • 1½ cups flour
  • 1 cup brown sugar
Work the above ingredients together.
For the liquid part:
  • ¾ teaspoon baking soda
  • ⅛ teaspoon nutmeg
  • a little ginger, cinnamon and cloves
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¾ cup molasses
  • ¾ cup hot water
Mix well together and add hot water. Into an unbaked pie shell, combine the crumbs and liquid in alternate layers with crumbs on bottom and top. Bake 15 minutes at 450 degrees, then 20 minutes at 350 degrees.
