I have made this recipe a couple of times now. So delicious! Nothing like this that I know of here in New Zealand, it is very easy to make and has an awesome flavour.
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!!!!!!
