Chocolate Shoofly Pie Recipe

This is an old Pennsylvania Dutch favorite that my family enjoys because it's not as sweet as some desserts. I love baking this reliable recipe, but I also like trying new ones.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 50 min. YIELD:8 servings


  • 1-1/3 cups boiling water
  • 1 can (16 ounces) chocolate syrup
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda, divided
  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup butter, softened
  • 1 unbaked deep-dish pie crust (9 inches)


  • 1. In a small bowl, stir together water, chocolate syrup and 1/4 teaspoon baking soda; set aside. In a large bowl, blend flour, sugar, butter and remaining baking soda; reserve 1 cup for topping.
  • 2. Place pie crust on a baking sheet. Pour 1 cup of chocolate syrup mixture into shell; gently combine rest of chocolate syrup mixture with remaining crumb mixture and add to pie crust. Sprinkle reserved crumbs on top.
  • 3. Bake at 375° for 50-60 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Yield: 8 servings.
