This past Sunday, for Father’s Day, I made a shoo-fly pie for my dad. Here are some things about my dad – He loves to tell stories. He’s the one who cuts all those little stumps for our desk calendars. I think he secretly wishes that he had been a mountain climber or an arctic explorer. He let us take over his old barn and turn it into our studio. He was once mistaken for Teddy Roosevelt by a six year old boy. AND, he has been one of the biggest 1canoe2 supporters from the VERY beginning. He definitely deserves a pie. Another thing about my dad – he loves molasses. I ran across this traditional Pennsylvania Dutch recipe for shoo-fly pie a while back and bookmarked it just for this occasion. Molasses, cinnamon, nutmeg… it tastes a little bit like gingerbread, and it was really good!
