My grandmother made the best Shoofly Pie in the tradition of the Pennsylvania Dutch. Shoofly pie is to the Pennsylvania Dutch as Pecan Pie is to a southerner. —Mark Morgan, Waterford, Wisconsin

MY REVIEW

Recipe was wonderful! Couldn't figure out what you meant about "lining pastry" at first and nearly gave up; then I decided to go for it and lined it with another pie pan and cover the edges with a protector. THIS PIE IS EXCELLENT! No over spilling or mess (even though I put a cookie sheet underneath just in case). Just wonderful all around. Thanks for sharing :)
