Other “desperation pies,” such as chess pie, vinegar pie, and sugar pies, are occasionally grouped together with this one-of-a-kind pie.
Shoofly Pie has been a Pennsylvania Dutch tradition since the 1880s. Shoofly Pie is my grandmother’s specialty.
I’ve been eating and enjoying this pie since I was a child. I decided to cook this pie on my own this time.
As a result, I asked my grandmother for her recipe. She walked me through every step of the recipe, and now I’m sharing it with you.
