Pumpkin, Apple Shoofly Pie

This is the newest dessert creation, my very own spin on Pennsylvania Dutch Shoofly Pie. Adding Apples & Pumpkin to the mix just took Shoofly Pie to the next level! This could easily become my favorite Thanksgiving pie!

2 Cups Flour
1/4 TSP Salt
2 TSP Sugar
1/3 Cup  Cold Butter
1/3 Cup Shortening
1/2 TSP Vanilla
This makes enough for 2 deep nine inch pies. I roll out one & freeze the other for another time!
Mix all dry together stirring well. Add butter & shortening cutting into the dry to make fine crumbs. Now stir in the vanilla & cold water using just enough water to dough come together. Roll out  1/2 of the dough on floured surface large enough to fit a deep 9 inch pie pan. Cut off overhanging dough then crimp & flute the edges. Now onto the filling!
Mix together in  deep bowl.
1 Cup Flour
3/4 Cup Sugar
1/4 TSP Salt
1 TSP Cinnamon
1/2 TSP each of Ginger, Cloves, & Nutmeg
Stir well the cut in 1 Heaping TBS of Shortening. Cut together like crumbs!  Remove 3/4 Cup for sprinkling on the top of your pie. In this 3/4 Cup add 2 TBS Brown Sugar cutting into the crumbs! Set aside .
Back to your remaining ingredients add the following:
1 Cup Molasses
2 Beaten Eggs
1 TSP Vanilla
1 TSP Baking Soda
Stir well!
1& 1/2 Cups Pumpkin Puree ( If making only Pumpkin Shoofly make this 2 Cups Pumpkin!)
1 Cup Hot Water. Stir very well!
5 Medium Apples Peeled, Cored & sliced thin! (If making this without pumpkin then use 8 apples!) Stir again! 
Pour all into the shell! It will look like this!
    Now sprinkle on those crumbs you kept aside & sprinkle the top with a nice sprinkle of Cinnamon!
Bake in a preheated  oven at 375 Degrees for 40 minutes or until done. Pie is done when it is completely set with no jiggling when you move the pie. The pie will also puff up when done!  Let cool completely before serving!
   This pie is so very good! Creamy pumpkin filling with tender apple slices, that molasses goodness blended through & then the glorious spices make this the perfect combination! My husband Frank came up with this idea & I give him credit, it is pure genius! The best of fall taste & all in one pie! I know you will love this beautiful & tasty pie! ENJOY !
