So sorry it didn't turn out well.  I didn't know what a shoofly pie was either.

According to Lori's favorite reference , there are two kinds of Shoofly Pie.  The wet bottom and the dry bottom. Yours sounds like the wet bottom.  I am on a molassis cookie kick right now.  The pie sounds good.

I heard that the name, "shoefly pie," comes from the fact that the pie is so sweet and full of sugar and molasses that one literally had to shoo away the flies.  Thanks to your baking endeavors, I'm no longer tempted to make it!

Do you remember that I was supposed to make one in St Bethlehem school? I didn't even know what one was! I have since tasted one and I thought it was yucky.

Hi! I'm so glad you joined in!  I think everyone should be skipping this one.  November's pie is much more appetizing, but labor-intensive...it's Martha's "Mile High Apple Pie."   If you have any creative pie ideas, feel free to share!...

Hi Rosemary, If made properly shoofly pie shouldn't look like that. The wet bottom one is wet at the bottom on top of the crust when you cut it; the filling should not be seeping out if it is, its not cooked properly. Also when cooked and made...

LOL thanks Soph!  That one went down in the history books around here as the "disaster pie."  Maybe using your tips, I might be willing to try it again some time (because I DO like molasses flavor), but I might be eating it alone Thanks for...

LOL I thought cherries would taste better, and I think everyone agreed.  Everyone being Ted.  The kids polished off the leftover bag of dried cherries, so I think they liked them.  The kids also participated in the baking; Catie whisked...

Hi Heidi! Always fun to meet a fellow baker   It is hard to find time, isn't it? I checked my book, and there's a "Three-Layered Chocolate Almond Bars" recipe that could be the one you're talking about, or there's "Giant Crisp Chocolate Wafers"...
