eat: Shoofly Pie

eat: Shoofly PieThis weekend, I found myself in Amish Country and paid a visit to the home of the Shoofly Pie in Lancaster County. Let me tell you: it was love at first bite.

The molasses – based pie gets in name due to the fact that the sweet aroma attracts flies, that you have to shoo away.  A recipe for classic shoo-fly pie can be found here or if you’re feeling fancy, you can try a rosemary honey version from the popular NYC bakery, Four and Twenty Blackbirds. It is a perfect pie to usher in the summer season. Just thought I might suggest…
