    Sherie717's Note:

    Born, raised & still residing in Lancaster County Amish/PA Dutch Country this is as authentic as it gets. This recipe is from the Mennonite Community Cookbook that's older than me & given to me by my mother. I saw a few other versions posted, but none were like this one. You could use 9 inch pre-pared pie crust but for the real deal you may want to start from scratch (see my Homemade Pie Crust (Pa Dutch Country) for the crust that goes with).

      I can tell you are from Dutch Country, I used to live in Lenhartsville; the people there also end their sentences with, "with." Cute. I have been looking for a Shoofly Pie recipe because my one girlfriend's Mom has requested it. She used to live in Lancaster when she was young; she's now 82 and is in poor health. I want to make her a fabulous pie and I think your recipe is the one I have been looking for. Thanks!!

      I'm originally from York county - Just outside of Lancaster and I've been craving a "taste of home". Shoo Fly Pie was a treat when I was growing up - and it HAD to come from Lancaster county! This recipe didn't dissapoint! It took me back into my childhood and many, many fond memories of Lancaster county! Thanks for sharing such an AMAZING recipe!

      Made this pie last night for the family. This was the first time making/tasting Shoofly pie, so could not compare with others. However, the pie was very good. The molasses was not over powering. I will make it again soon.
