Shoofly Pie 2
This was my first time making and eating shoofly pie, and I must say that I enjoyed it. I baked it in a 9-inch deep dish pie plate. Served warm with slightly-sweetened whipped cream. Thanks for sharing the recipe.
brown sugar, light
or ice cream, optional
Combine the flour, brown sugar, and shorting in a bowl.
Cut with pastry blender or rub together until it forms fine crumbs.
While preparing the liquid, put unbaked pie shell in preheated oven at 350℉ (180℃) for about 5 minutes.
This prevents bottom from getting soggy.
To make the liquid, dissolve the soda in the boiling in a bowl.
Add the Molasses and salt and stir to blend well.
Pour the liquid mixture into the prebaked pie shell and add the topping mixture.
Bake in 400℉ (200℃) oven for 10 minutes.
Reduce the oven to 350℉ (180℃) and bake 30 minutes longer until the center does not move when it is shaken.
Serve warm with whipped cream or ice cream.
