Shoofly Pie

People ate the pie so quickly so unfortunately this is all that
was left to take a picture of - the last piece!
This summer has been filled with many sights and states and foods and friends. The last thing left on my "Grammie would you please make this list" was a shoofly pie! I never really liked the idea of eating something that had a fly in its name but I made an exception with this recipe. News Flash! It contains no flies, but I have a feeling that it attracts flies...thus the name "shoo fly!"

Grandma stays very focused even when you ask her to "smile for the camera" or maybe she was tired from all the picture taking. =)

Everything all mashed up, with our handy, dandy pastry blender.

"Amazing Reaction!"

No, this is not a pumpkin pie, it's a shoofly pie.  It's not very good at shooing away the flies though. =P

1 cup flour
2/3 cup brown sugar
1 rounded tbsp. Crisco
1 cup molasses
1 egg beaten
3/4 cup hot water
1 tsp. baking soda
9 inch unbaked pie crust

1. In a large bowl add flour, brown sugar, and Crisco and blend with a pastry blender or fork. (And as grandma said, "blend until your arm is tired.") Lay aside 1/2 cup of the crumbs.

2. Pour molasses and whisked egg into the large bowl and stir. In a separate small bowl combine water and baking soda and carefully pour this into the large bowl. After you finish stirring, pour contents of large bowl into pie pan then sprinkle the 1/2 cup crumbs on top.

 3. Bake at 375 degrees for 30 min.

 This little baker went to Aunt Shannon's, this little baker went to Grandma's, and finally this little baker went to Aunt Lori's. After all that, she's back home and baking in her own kitchen with her own potholders, pans, and dishcloths to clean up all of her own messes...

Sorry it took soooo long to post this. School has officially started which ends the late nights of blogging and the sleeping in AND the extra time to bake but I'll see what I can do during the school year...

GB2- God Bless, Go BAKE!!!
