This is a great! I had trouble finding a wet bottom shoo-fly pie recipe and was pleasantly surprised to find this one and that it was so easy to make!
thought it was absolutely the best. thanks
Very easy to make and loved that it was lower fat than some other recipes. Just too much molasses flavor for my personal taste.
