Hershey Farm Famous Original Recipe!
9" Wet Bottom Shoo-fly Pie
A rich pie of Pennsylvania Dutch origin dating back to the 1880’s made of molasses, syrup or brown sugar sprinkled with a crumbly mixture of flour, sugar, and butter.
Though it is now often eaten as dessert, this hearty treat was once—and in some areas of Pennsylvania still is—a breakfast staple, dipped in a mug of coffee and usually eaten by hand.
According to some, the name of this popular molasses-flavored treat comes from the days of old when bakers would have to “shoo” flies away from the sweet molasses smell while their pies were cooling on the windowsill.
Some settling of the crumb topping to one side may occur during shipping. Shaking the pie before taking the sealed wrapping off can resolve this issue.
Here are a few tips to help you savor every bite.
