  1. Hi Georgia!

    I made your recipe for Shoofly pie yesterday and I love the flavors, however, mine was a little dry. Do you have any suggestions to moisten it up? Thank-you! I love your books! I first heard of you on Amish Wisdom with Suzanne Woods Fisher.

  2. May I ask which book you got the recipe from? I have two versions of Shoofly Pie in two different cookbooks, and one of them does tend to be moister than the other. I'm thinking you might like that one! If you let me know which recipe you've used, I'll send you the other version. Or we can put our heads together and figure out a solution.

  3. I used the recipe from The Homestyle Amish Kitchen Cookbook. I'm making Calico Beans tonight from the same book :)


    1. First of all, Calico Beans are a great winter meal! Hope you like it.
      Here's a variation of the Shoofly Pie that is in my Amish Baking Cookbook and it's for one pie:
      3/4 cup molasses
      1/2 cup hot water
      3/4 tsp. baking soda
      1 egg, slightly beaten
      1 1/2 cups flour
      3/4 cup brown sugar
      1/4 cup shortening
      single unbaked piecrust
      Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a medium bowl, combine molasses, hot water, and baking soda. Whisk in beaten egg. Set aside. In a separate bowl, combine flour and brown sugar. Using a pastry blender, cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
      Pour half of molasses mixture into piecrust. Sprinkle half of crumb mixture over top. Pour remaining molasses mixture over crumbs and finish with remaining crumb mixture. Bake 15 minutes; reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees and bake an additional 30 minutes. Let cool 30 minutes be serving. This pie is best served warm.
      Good luck!

  4. Thank-you for your recipe! I will try this one and see if I can get my husband and kids hooked on shoo-fly pie because I love it! Today I made your Oven-Baked Chicken I from the Homestyle Amish Kitchen Cookbook. My family loves it.
