Authentic Shoo Fly Pie

Authentic Shoo Fly Pie From Lancaster County Pa.

This Authentic Shoo Fly Pie recipe is from a friend that was born, raised & still resides in Lancaster County Amish/PA Dutch Country.

 

This is as authentic as it gets. I’ve seen a few other versions, but none were like this one.

You can use a 9 inch prepared pie crust but for the real deal, you may want to start from scratch.
