Old-Fashioned Shoo Fly Pie.

Flip it!

When considering Pennsylvania Dutch cooking and baking, one particular pie stands above the rest. I guess you could say it “takes the cake.” 🙂 Pennsylvania Dutch shoofly pie has been and is still a favorite among the Amish and Mennonite communities here in Lancaster County. This sweet, sticky pie is a must-try for any pie enthusiasts out there.

My grandmother made the best shoofly pie in the tradition of the Pennsylvania Dutch. Shoofly pie is to the Pennsylvania Dutch as pecan pie is to a Southerner.

Classic Pennsylvania Dutch recipe. Grandma’s loving attention not included!

This old-fashioned shoofly pie is made with a molasses filling and a crumbly brown sugar topping. The pie calls for Southern sorghum syrup, but regular molasses can be used, or use part molasses and part cane syrup or golden syrup.


  • 1 unbaked pie crust, homemade or store-bought


  • 1 cup molasses
  • 3/4 cup hot water
