Shoofly Chocolate Pie Recipe

If you like traditional shoofly pie, the chocolate version is even better! I sometimes serve it with vanilla ice cream, but it’s just as good on its own.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 45 min. + cooling YIELD:6-8 servings


  • Pastry for single-crust pie (9 inches)
  • 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons butter-flavored shortening
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1-1/2 cups water
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup molasses


  • 1. Line a 9-in. deep-dish pie plate with pastry. Trim to 1/2 in. beyond edge of plate; flute edges. Sprinkle chocolate chips into shell; set aside.
  • 2. In a large bowl, combine flour and brown sugar; cut in shortening until crumbly. Set aside 1 cup for topping. Add the baking soda, water, egg and molasses to remaining crumb mixture and mix well. Pour over chips. Sprinkle with reserved crumb mixture.
  • 3. Bake at 350° for 45-55 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack for 20 minutes before cutting. Serve warm. Yield: 6-8 servings.

"I did not care for the combination of chocolate and molasses in this pie. It tasted medicinal to me."
