    I grow up on Shoo – Fly Pie. I make even now that I live in Texas. It’s great with coffee.

      Besides being rich,the pie has a distinct molasses taste. I like molasses,but the flavor can be overwhelming. A couple years ago,Kevin posted a recipe for a maple syrup pie. I like it better,but I may be biased,since we make our own syrup!!

    All this talk of sweets and ooey, gooey goodness and pies, sigh, guess I
    will have to get busy baking. I like molasses in some cookies, but have never
    tasted Shoo Fly Pie (guess the flies love it’s sweetness too).
    Your photo is beautiful – can feel/picture descending into the valley and the
    farm fragrances and morning dew on the grass on my bare feet. Thanks.

    Hi Kevin,
    Did you watch “Breaking Amish” on Sunday Sept. 9, 2012 ??
    There was a girl in a peach dress from Punxsutawney, Pa. whose china cabinet had some items with a little cardboard sign that said – Great Grandma Elizabeth Cobletz.
    Wow! that really caught my attention. I am sure many others noticed it too.
    Wish you would reply to this message.

    Didn’t know any other way to write to you. The message I left on kwilliams@oasisnewsfeatures.com came back to me undelivered.

    Your friend, Paula

    My husband loves shoo-fly pie. I made one once and decided that it would be a great dish for breakfast or brunch.
