Aunt Emma's Shoo-Fly Pie

This another old favorite from From the American Heart Association Cookbook. Haven't fixed it in a while, but it came to mind recently and I remember it as being really, really good. It is billed as a Pennsylvania Dutch delight, and I hope you find it delightful when you try it!

Aunt Emma's Shoo-Fly Pie

pie pastry for a 9-inch one-crust pie
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup margarine
1 tsp. baking soda
3/4 cup boiling water
3/4 cup dark corn syrup
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. clove

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line a 9-inch pie pan with pie pastry. Combine flour with brown sugar and salt. Cut in the margarine until the mixture resembles corn meal. Pour 1/3 of the crumbs into the pie shell.

Add baking soda to the hot water, stir in the dark corn syrup and spices, and pour 1/3 of the mixture over the crumbs in the pie shell. Continue alternating layers, ending with crumbs on top, and bake 35 minutes. Serve warm or cold.
