I have been searching for a pie that came as close as possible to a real Amish Shoofly Pie. The Dutch dessert is so incredibly wonderful and this recipe came close if not better than the one I had from Pennsylvania. It's moist and so addicting ! I had to control myself to eat the entire pie, it's that good!!!!!!

First time trying and it was delicious! I used a graham cracker crust and it turned out wonderful! It did take quite a bit longer for it to finish, approximately 20+ minutes, but it was well worth the wait. Will make again.

I cheated and used an already prepared crust. I have had authentic Pennsylvania Dutch Shoofly Pie and can honestly say, this is the closest recipe I have made to the real deal! I was so thrilled. This pie is excellent for breakfast or brunch, or dessert. I used the molasses in my pie. My son even loved it and asks me to make it again surprisingly often.
