Shoofly Pie is a thick and sweet molasses based pie, that originated in the 1880’s as a staple breakfast pastry.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the our and brown sugar. Using a pastry blender or fork, cut the butter into the flour until large crumbs form. Sprinkle generously over the pie, leaving about ¼ cup leftover.
Bake for 15 minutes. Then, reduce the heat to 350°F, rotate the dish, and sprinkle on the remaining topping. Bake for 30 minutes.
