A Tribute to Mom

Mom - who taught me the joy of cooking

Family recipes…

A treasure trove of memories

A connection to one’s heritage

A tangible reminder of family ties

And with each re-creation

A tribute to the many cooks whose hands prepared it in the past and gave it ‘life’

My grandmother was Pennsylvania Dutch, and this recipe comes from a friend of hers.  Although I don’t remember my grandmother making this, my mom made it as a regular treat when we were growing up. After I moved away from home, I always knew whenever I went back for a visit, shoofly pie and Mom would be waiting for me. This is actually a breakfast pie; the bottom layer can range from moist and slightly gooey to cake-like and always with a delicious crumb topping…  I chose this recipe to share with you as a tribute to my mother.

Jennie Bowman’s Shoofly Pie

4 C flour

½ C butter

2 C sugar

1 tsp baking powder

1 C molasses

2 C hot water

1 tsp baking soda

2 pie crusts, unbaked

Preheat oven to 350.

Combine flour, shortening, sugar, baking powder into a fine crumb mixture.  In a separate bowl, mix together molasses, water and baking soda.  Pour into pie shells.  Divide the crumb mixture into equal portions for each pie; add quickly.  Immediately put pies into the oven.  Bake for about 25 minutes.
