“Truly one of my favorite desserts ever! This recipe comes from the AMAZING Good 'N Plenty Family Restaurant in the heart of Lancaster County, PA. Bar none, my favorite restaurant ANYWHERE. (And I get around!) Try this, and prepare to be amazed by the delicious, gooey/crumbly, SWEET richness! One of the characteristics of a traditional Shoo-Fly pie is a crumbly, messy, almost floury crust on top...I understand that all tastes are different, and for that, I'm sorry you and DH didn't like it, Sistah. :(”
