I made this for our Thanksgiving dinner, I waited to share the recipe because there was a flood of sweets being offered and I wanted this pie to have a little spotlight of its own. I love vintage recipes and this one is delicious. Shoo Fly Pie has been referred to as syrupy, and you just might find a bit of molasses on your plate when you are done enjoying your slice of pie.

When I was thumbing through the More with Less Cookbook and came across this recipe for Shoofly Pie, I knew it had to make it's way to our table. The Shoofly Cake has a bit of cinnamon in the crumb mixture, molasses and cinnamon are naturals together, so feel free to add some cinnamon to the pie recipe also.
On pie making day we made two pies, one of which was this Shoo Fly Pie. The mixture is very fluid when you pour it into the crust, but it all bakes up just fine. It goes without saying that this is the perfect pie for a scoop of ice cream or a small pile of whipped cream.....
If you enjoy molasses, you will love this pie, I did and will make again. There is something about this pie that calls out to me. It might be the flavor, but it could just as easily be the fact that this is an old recipe dating back hundreds of years...I seem to like those recipes a lot.
