Here is another cousin to the Shoo-Fly Pie. Like the Quakertown, it is more gooey than the wet bottom shoo-fly. At the famous Lancaster Farmers' Markets, Vanilla Pies are best sellers, available from the Amish women who bake them.

2 Pastry Shells, unbaked
1 cup sugar
4 tbs. flour
1 egg, well beaten
1 cup molasses or Blue Label Karo
2 cups water
1 tsp. vanilla
2 cups flour
1 cup brown sugar
1 tsp. cream of tartar
1 tsp. baking soda
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup lard

Combine the first 6 ingredients in a saucepan in the order given. Bring to
a full rolling boil, then set aside to cool. Put remaining ingredients into
a large bowl and rub together with fingers to make crumbs. Pour 1/2 of
cooked mixture into each unbaked pastry shell. Cover with crumbs. Bake 40 to 45 minutes at 350 °.

Indiana Sugar Pie

Marcia Adams

Unbaked Single Pie Crust for 9" pie
4 tbs.  all-purpose flour
2 tbs.  (1/4 stick) cold butter
1 cup sugar
Pinch of salt
1 cup heavy (whipping) cream
1 cup milk
1 tsp. vanilla extract
Grated nutmeg, for garnish

Preheat the oven to 350 °.  Roll pie dough out on a floured surface
and use to line a 9 inch pie pan.  Set aside.  Blend the flour, butter,
sugar, and salt in a food processor until well combined and smooth, about 5
seconds.  Pour into the pie shell.  Add the cream and mix gently with your
fingers, being careful not to break through the bottom crust.
In a measuring cup, combine the milk and vanilla; pour over the top of the
cream mixture, but do not stir in.  Sprinkle lavishly with nutmeg.  Bake
for 1 1/2 hours.  (This seems too long, but it does require long baking.)
The center of the pie will be bubbly and still a little wiggly.  Cool
completely at room temperature before cutting.

Amish Brown Sugar Pie
Cooking from Quilt Country
Marcia Adams

1 unbaked 8" pie shell
1 cup brown sugar
3 tbs.  all-purpose flour
Speck of salt
1 - 12 oz. can evaporated milk
2 1/2 tbs.  butter
Ground cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350 °.  In the pie shell, place the brown sugar,
flour, and salt.  Mix with your fingers.  Pour the evaporated milk over the
flour and sugar, but do not stir or mix this in.  Dot with butter, and
drift cinnamon liberally over all.  Bake for 50 min., or until the filling
just bubbles up in the middle.
The filling will never completely set, but that's the way it's supposed to
be.  This pie is better eaten at room temperature.  If you refrigerate
leftovers (it is highly unlikely there will be leftovers), reheat them in
the oven before serving.

NOTE:  Recipe can be doubled and prepared in a 10 inch pie shell.  For that size, bake 1 hour and 20 minutes.

YIELD:  12 servings

Grandma's Cherry Pie

1 c sugar
1/4 c flour
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. almond extract
1-1/3 tbs. butter (about 4 teaspoons)
1 16 oz. can of pie cherries, not cherry pie filling (look for dark
sweet pitted cherries packed in water)
pastry for double crust pie

Preheat oven to 425°F.

In saucepan, combine sugar, flour, cinnamon and undrained cherries. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until mixture thickens and boils (about 7 minutes).Remove from heat and stir in almond extract.

Pour mixture into a 9 inch unbaked pie shell. Dot with butter. Cover with top crust, seal edges and crimp. If a lattice crust is not used, put one or several vents in the crust. Bake at 425°F for 30 to 35 minutes until crust is brown.

Fresh Peach Pie

1 c sugar
1/4 c flour
4 ripe fresh peaches, sliced
1 tbs. lemon juice
1/4 tsp. ground mace or nutmeg
2 c flour
1/2 tsp. salt
2/3 c crisco
1/2 c cold water
3 tbs. butter

Preheat oven to 425°F.

To prepare filling, mix sugar and 1/4 cup flour in large bowl. Add peaches, lemon juice and mace or nutmeg and toss well. Set aside.

To prepare the dough, mix 2 cups flour and salt in large mixing bowl. Measure shortening and drop on top of flour mixture. Cut flour into shortening with fork or pastry blender until mixture becomes small bits of shortening coated with flour. Size will not be uniform. Add
water all at once by sprinkling on top of mixture. Stir with fork to incorporate water into mixture.

Generously flour work surface and hands. Scoop dough out of bowl, plop it onto work surface and pat into a rough ball. Divide into 2 equal portions. Roll out 1 portion into circle about 12 inches in diameter, lifting dough and sprinkling additional flour onto work surface as needed so that dough doesn't stick.

To transfer to pie pan, roll dough loosely around rolling pin and unroll, starting at far side of pie pan, so that dough drops into pan. Avoid stretching dough. Let about 1-1/2 inches of dough hang over outer edge of pan. Pile fruit onto dough. Scatter bits of butter over fruit.

Roll out remaining half of dough for top crust and drape over pie. Trim away excess dough around edges, but leave enough to tuck under top of pie pan edge. Crimp edges and cut several vents in top.

Bake at 425°F for 10 minutes, then reduce heat to 350°F and bake until juices bubble around edges on top of pie and crust is lightly browned, about 40 minutes more.

Blackberry Sour Cream Pie

There's no such thing as the wrong time to serve this pie to guests.
This pie always gets rave reviews! The best thing about it, is that it's quick to make.

9" unbaked pie shell
1 cup sugar
1 cup sour cream
3 tbs. flour
1/4 tsp. salt
4 cups fresh or frozen 16 oz pkg. blackberries (thawed)
1/4 cup fine bread crumbs
2 tbs. flour
1 tbs. butter or margarine (melted)

Combine the one cup sugar, sour cream, flour, and salt. Place berries in pie shell.
Spread sour cream mixture on top. Combine bread crumbs and remaining sugar and butter. Sprinkle on top. Bake 375 ° for 40 - 45 minutes or 'til done.

Drying out while cooking: 

Erecting a small smokestack in the center of the pie permits the heat to escape, so it doesn't stay inside and boil the juices away.The simplest sort of smokestack is a piece of raw macaroni inserted vertically right in
the middle of the pie. If the pie has already dried out too much, you can wet it by making a simple syrup from 1/4 cup currant jelly and 1/2 cup water and pouring it through the slashes in the crust. Or use maple syrup right from the bottle.

Cool Down:
Pies may be cooled quickly by putting a layer of ice cubes in a big pan
and resting the pie tin on top of the ice cubes.

Not enough filling: 
Shorten the side crust to the top of the filling, and serve it as a flan or as a tart with a lattice crust.(or if you're lazy,serve as a pie without enough filling)

 Soggy crust: 
 Brush the sides and the top crust with a beaten, but not fluffy, egg white, and put in a hot oven(400 °) for 4 minutes.

Too sweet: 
Add the juice of half a lemon to the filling.
This also helps to bring out the flavor of the fruit, especially in berry pies.
