Amish Shoo Fly Pie

I recently had the pleasure of visiting Lancaster, PA's Amish country. While there, I had the privilege of tasting shoo fly pie for the first time. It was so good!

I was able to find this recipe, so you can try it yourself (the recipe makes two--one to keep and one to share):

Amish Shoo Fly Pie

2 c. flour
3/4 c. brown sugar
1/3 c. margarine
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1 tsp. cinnamon

1 c. molasses
1/2 c. brown sugar
2 eggs
1 c. hot water
1 tsp. baking soda, dissolved in the hot water
2 unbaked 8" pie crusts

Mix crumb ingredients together until crumbs are formed. In separate bowl, mix syrup ingredients together. Pour 1/2 of syrup into each pie shell, then top each with crumbs, using 1/2 on each. Bake at 400 degrees for 10 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 degrees and bake for 50 more minutes. Cool completely before cutting.
Additional Information
This recipe makes 2 pies. Simply cut everything in half for just one.
