Free Recipe Friday – Shoo-Fly Pie

Hello, Amish Readers! Here is today’s selection from Georgia Varozza’s The Homestyle Amish Kitchen Cookbook.

Shoo-Fly Pie

1 cup of molasses
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 eggs, beaten
1 cup hot water
1 tsp. baking soda, dissolved in hot water
2 8-inch unbaked pie crusts
2 cups flour
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup butter
1/2 tsp. cinnamon

Mix the first five ingredients thoroughly together to make a syrup. Divide mixture in half and pour into the two unbaked pie shells. Thoroughly mix together the rest of the ingredients for a crumb topping. Divide and sprinkle crumb topping onto the two pies.

Bake at 450 for 10 minutes and then reduce heat to 350 and continue baking until done, about another 30 minutes.
