Shoofly Pie: A Favorite Recipe from my Brother-in-Law

Try to Eat Just One Slice....

Sometimes I think I will change the name of this pie to Nostalgia Pie. Every time I make one or look at one, my brother-in-law always comes to mind. He was like the brother I never had. He made every day fun. And, he was quite a baker. Almost any time I visited, there was always a cloud of flour and confectioner's sugar swirling around in the kitchen and dining room.

He would be making all of the many wonderful, tasty, mouth-watering cookies we all looked forward to when he was baking cookies each year.

Cookies were not the only sweets he made. There were shoofly pies, too. Of all of the sweet treats I believe shoofly pies are among my most favorite he was baking.


Shoo What???

Why is it called shoofly pie?

The answer may depend on the source you refer to. I have always been told and have read in many places the following reason.

When those who first traveled to our county to settle in eastern Pennsylvania, they brought along supplies that would make the trip without spoiling. Flour, molasses, and lard were among the items they brought.. When folks got a hankering for something sweet, the shoofly pie would be made.

As you can well imagine, the sticky molasses attracted flies, and, so those preparing the pies could be heard to say...'shoo, fly'. Hence the name.


Magic in the Kitchen

One year, I did not travel to visit my sister and brother-in-law.

"Oh, my. No cookies, no shoofly pie this year," I thought. One day, a knock was heard at my front door. It was a ups delivery person who handed me a suitcase.. As soon as he left, my daughter and I sat down and opened it. It was filled with all of our favorite cookies and 2 shoofly pies!!!

Now, I am sharing a recipe that is much like the one he used. It is not the exact recipe but close. The sad truth is no matter what recipe anyone used, their pie would never taste like his. The crust was divinity. It fell apart in my mouth and was such a complement to the wet ingredients that were nestled down inside of it.

When we were not looking, he used some kind of magic to turn the flour, sugar, and molasses into the culinary delight that he would present us. I am certain that at least once I saw tiny little sparkling stars dancing around above the bowls he was using. I know he laughed and smiled as I made the pie today. I could almost feel him there in the kitchen with me. Sadly, he left us too soon. Every time I make one of these pies it is in honor of him.

You will fall in love with this unusual pastry. It is actually often used as a breakfast food but has a way of disappearing at other times during the day.

When Pie is Delicious Enough to Have a Song Written About IT, You KNOW It's Gotta' Be Lip Smackin' Good !!!!!

Options

**Rather than making full size shoofly pies you can make individual ones.

Use the same crust and filling recipe.

Use small individual pie tins, line with crust, and fill with filling. Adjust baking time for the size of your individual pies


**You can use frozen pie crusts (as shown in photo above...but homemade are far superior.)

Your recipe for shoofly pie is the best I've seen and your pictures surely give us a good LOOKING pie as well. This is a pie I've have for lunch all by itself, warm, with a cup of tea or coffee. It would take me through the day!

I'm sharing this and adding to my recipe folder. Thanks a million!

I can see those clouds of flour and sugar you mention:) That suitcase was a perfect gift, and so thoughtful.

Aufait I can think of no reason why you could not do that. After all when we camp we use all kinds of inventive ways to bake.

This is yum yum. And trust me, I know about the heat. It is hot hot hot here in Florida....I get outside work done early in the morning or about this time (7:30) at night. Otherwise I am overcome with the heat and humidity.

This sounds like it would be just right. I wonder how it would turn out in one of those portable solar ovens so to keep the heat outside? We are in the hot days here in Texas, 95 degrees and up most days until mid September or longer.

Hoping you are having a good week and staying cool!

Yes...one slice is packed with a large portion of calories...that is why I do not make these pies often...if I did I would just roll from place to place. I do hope you have the chance to try it once though if you have not.

This is a charming article and one that makes you feel like you are in your brother-in-laws kitchen. However, I was shocked when I saw that one slice of this pie is 400 calories! Yikes! No wonder it tastes so good!

O it is delightful. For obvious reasons I do not make them often because they are not figure friendly AT ALL. They are a nice surprise on a breakfast buffet when you have guests and of course for family on a weekend maybe.

Thanks for reuniting me with a long lost recipe. I first had shoofly pie in the mid 80s when I lived in Maryland, and even got the recipe then and made a pie which turned out very well. It was a heavenly delight which I have missed for so many years. Voted up as interesting and useful and sharing with HP followers and on Facebook.

Hi Patricia,

Far too many carbohydrates for my diet but I had to read this for my curiosity. I'd heard the song when I was a kid but never knew what a shoo-fly pie was. My guess is that it must be an ethnic of regional food. Anyhow, thanks for satisfying my curiosity.

Oh, I was so happy when I saw your hub on Shoo Fly Pie. We lived about 2 1/2 hours from Lancaster and make the trip with 2 other couples, my sisters and their husbands, to the Amish country. Bird In Hand is a favorite town of ours. My favorite thing is the Shoo Fly Pie. Ever since I was a child I sang that song. I have several Amish cook books so I have the recipe. Now I'm in the mood for it so I think I will get out those recipe books and match them with your recipe. Probably very close. Thank you again for sharing this hub. I even loved the videos. I gave you 5 stars, a thumbs up and awesome.
