I Hate Apple Pie Apple Shoofly Pie

A boring apple pie hidden within a buttery, molasses shoofly pie.


1/2 stick (1/4 cup) cold sweet butter, chunked

1 cup flour

1/3 cup brown sugar

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon ground cloves

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/3 cup boiling water

1/3 cup molasses

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

2 large, Red Delicious apples, cored, peeled and diced

1 deep dish pie shell (8")

Vanilla ice cream

      The Recipe

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Make crumb mixture:  Place butter, flour, brown sugar and spices in food processor and process until it resembles coarse meal.

In a large bowl, mix together boiling water and molasses.  Stir in baking soda, then apples.  Add about 2/3's of the crumb mixture.  Place pie shell on baking sheet and pour mixture into shell.  Top with remaining crumb mixture.  Bake about 35 - 40 minutes, or until top is lightly browned and pie is set.  Let cool completely.  Serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.  Serves 6 - 8.
