This pie is quick to prepare and easy to make. However, it fails to taste like any Shoo Fly Pie I've tasted while growing up in Lancaster County, PA. I believe the missing component is the lack of a "wet bottom." The bottom was more cakey than gooey but the crumbly topping sure tasted good! :-) Other than doubling the topping part (It needs it!), I followed the recipe to perfectly.

This isn't like any shoo fly pie I have had. I didn't care for the taste and texture. The shoo fly pie I'm looking for is kinda like pecan pie but w/o the nuts and sweet.

Oh soooo good! Just enough gooey stuff at the bottom. Just like I remember having as a child in PA. Thanks.

Lynn Remmers My husband was born in Holland, so I took great pleasure in making this for him. We both loved it!

My family loved it! I did double the flour mixture, and it worked out very well.
