Shoofly Pie Recipe

This easy shoofly pie recipe became popular with farmhouse cooks for various reasons. The pies were inherently inexpensive to bake and easier to eat as a handheld pie, meaning no knife and fork were required. The meaning of the name is not exactly clear but we know that the shoofly pies stemmed from Pennsylvania Dutch wives.Shoofly pie is also known as molasses crumb pie.


One suggestion is that the pies were named after a famous boxing mule called Shoofly. Another suggestion is that the sticky molasses that formed on the inside of the pies attracted flies, hence the name shoofly. All I know is that these shoofly pies are very popular with kids and everyone else enjoys them. They are quick and easy to make, taste great, and are a good way for home bakers to increase their incomes.
