Draw your gang to the table with our easy Amish-style Shoofly Pie recipe. This sweet pie, with its melt-in-your mouth crust and gooey molasses filling, is a classic homestyle Amish dessert that never goes out of style.

What You'll Need:
  • 1 refrigerated pie crust
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup molasses
  • 3/4 cup cold water
  • 1/4 cup hot water
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
What To Do:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Place pie crust in a shallow 9-inch pie plate and flute the edges.
     
  2. In a large bowl, combine flour, brown sugar, butter, and salt; mix well and reserve 1 cup mixture.
     
  3. In a medium bowl, combine egg, molasses, and cold water; mix gently and set aside.
     
  4. In a small bowl, mix hot water and baking soda and stir into molasses mixture. Stir molasses mixture into flour mixture and pour into pie shell. Top with reserved flour mixture.
     
  5. Bake 35 to 40 minutes. Pie will firm up as it cools. Cool completely before cutting.
