Shaker cuisine is probably some of the best eatin' you'll ever try. It's homecooking at it's best. This pie is delicious and simple.

I don't really know what Shoo Fly Pie is suppose to be like, as I've never had it before. I made this one and it definitely has a molasses taste, of course. It was very easy to make and looks very nice. My company did eat it and said it was good and had a sweet taste to it. So, I guess that's good. Thanks for the recipe!!

This was my first time to eat or make shoo fly pie. I've been missing out all my life! WOW! EASY! I love molasses any ole way, even straight, so this is really my cup o' tea. This was great with a glop of fresh homade whipped cream and a hot cup of coffee. I took more like 40-45 minutes, but that's 'cause I turned the oven down to 350. It still came out top rate
