Recipe for Open Range Shoofly Pie


    Open Range Shoofly Pie

    2 cups all-purpose flour
    1/2 cup granulated sugar
    1/2 cup solid shortening
    1 cup light molasses
    1 teaspoon baking soda
    1 cup boiling water

    Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

    Mix flour, sugar and shortening. Blend with a pastry knife until crumbly, resembling oatmeal. Place the mixture in a greased pie pan and spread evenly on the bottom and up the sides, being careful not to compress the mix.

    Blend molasses, baking soda and boiling water. Carefully pour over the crumbs. Bake for 45 minutes. The sides will be slightly puffy when done. Cool before serving.
