Ooey Gooey Shoofly Pie !


2 cup flour
1/4 tsp. salt
2 tsp. sugar
2/3 cup  cold butter
1/2 tsp. vanilla
4 to 5 tbs. cold water
Mix all dry together, cut in butter until you have fine crumbs. Add cold water & stir only until dough holds together. Turn out on flour surface & roll out to fit a nine inch pie pan. Fold dough gently in half & lift into pie pan. Unfold & fit dough into pan. Crimp edges of crust. Line crust with a sheet of foil. Fill with about 2 cups of raw rice. Bake in 350 degree oven for 10 minutes to blind bake the crust. This allows crust to stay crisp & not get soggy for your finished pie. I do this with all my crusts & it makes a HUGE difference! Once crust is baked for 10 minutes remove from oven & carefully remove foil  & rice. This should easily come out with foil cradling the rice. Now prepare filling & topping. SIDE NOTE : Rice used for blind baking may be saved & used for many blind bakings. Crust trimmings may be used to make Roly Polys found on this Blog & ALWAYS made with crust trimmings if you are a GOOD Pa Dutch Baker !

OOEY GOOEY filling & topping
1 cup flour
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 tbs. shortening
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. salt
1 cup molasses ( I use Brer Rabbit Mild) but use your favorite.
1 egg
1 tsp. baking soda
1 cup hot water
1 tsp. vanilla
Mix flour, salt, brown sugar & cinnamon together. Cut in shortening to make crumbs. Take out 3/4 cup of crumbs for topping. Now add molasses & vanilla, mix hot water & baking soda together & add all of these wet ingredients to the dry. Best the egg add it to the wet. Now stir well until everything is nicely blended. Pour into your pie crust that you already blind baked & removed foil with rice. Sprinkle the crumb mixture evenly on top of batter. Now sprinkle the top with more cinnamon. Bake at 375 degrees for 35 to 40 minutes. Let pie cool & serve warm or cold with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream if you desire! I like it cold just so. THIS PIE HAS A DEEP GOOEY BOTTOM with about 1 inch of crumbs on top. This is for a friends birthday & I will try to get a photo of a slice so you can see but it truly is a " WET BOTTOM" pie just the way we like it in Pa!

  1. This was just the perfect taste of Lancaster County Dutchyness! Gooey on the bottom crumbly crumbs with a touch of spice & the crust was nice a crisp from the blind baking! My friend LOVED her birthday pie!
