Mom’s Favorites – Shoo Fly Pie

This pie is absolutely wonderful!  We grew up near an Amish community, so makes sense that we made this pie, as the Amish are famous for this delicious treat.


1 cup flour
3/4 cup brown sugar
2 Tbsp. Crisco shortening

Mix like pie dough with fork or hands (take out 3/4 cup for later use).


1 cup dark Karo
1 cup boiling water
1 egg
1 tsp. baking soda

Mix liquid and crumbs and pour into unbaked pie crust. Sprinkle (3/4 cup) crumbs on top. Bake 400 degrees for 10 minutes, then 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes.
