Total TimePrep: 20 min. + chilling Bake: 65 min. + cooling
First time making this. As another reviewer did, I used store bought pie pastry. Agree, 1 is not enough, ended up combining both. It's in the oven now, am dubious about the amount of topping I added. Are you supposed to add all of it or just enough to completely cover the top? It seemed excessive, guess I'll find out in 20 minutes. Will update review after it's cooled.
Best shoo fly ever. Even better than the local Amish farmers market.
My husband had to bring something to an office potluck and I texted his co-workers to see what they needed or if they had any special requests. One gentleman said he had sung a song about Shoofly Pie when he was a kid and always wondered what it was and asked if I would make one. I told him sure but had no idea what it was! I found this recipe and it seemed easy enough, so I made it. It turned out great and my husband loved it! I made a double batch and the second pie goes to the office tomorrow. I am certain it will get rave reviews. One note though, I bought ready-made frozen pie crusts that were labeled "deep dish" but looked a little small to me, and sure enough, they were. I had just a little too much filling and topping for them and had to put the remainder in a small loaf pan. Be sure to use a full, deep dish pie pan and crust for this recipe! Other than that, this recipe is awesome. It's so unusual and very delicious! :)
This was the first time I tried this pie, it's absolutely delicious! I was worried about the amount of flour in the topping but it's perfectly fine. So happy I decided to make it. Thanks so much.
mbhtheduke, You didn't put it in the microwave I hope. I've never heard of a pie exploding in the oven. Boil over maybe.
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 :)
The Pie Exploded all over the place
This is very good. I will be making this one from now on. Awesome!!!!
