WoW! If I could give this ten stars I would. This is soo good. Better than any other Shoofly pie I've ever had. One of the best pies I've ever made. This will definitely be a regular for the holidays. I would suggest cutting back on the crumb mixture, I had a ton left over. Also, I sprinkled a cinnamon/clove mixture generously on top of the pie before I baked it. Thank you for sharing Karen, I love this recipe!

This is simply the BEST Shoo-fly pie. Don't look any further! I use butter instead of shortening in the crumb mixture.

The only thing I did not like about this recipe is the pie has a stronger than expected prominent taste of molassas. I reccomment cutting the amount of molassas down by 1/3. Otherwise I loved this recipe. Great texture, super easy to make, a real crowd pleaser.
