If you like traditional shoofly pie, the chocolate version is even better! I sometimes serve it with vanilla ice cream, but it is just as good on its own. —Gwen Brounce Widdowson, Fleetwood, Pennsylvania

Ingredients

  • Pastry for single-crust pie (9 inches)
  • 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons butter-flavored shortening
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1-1/2 cups water
  • 1 large egg, room temperature, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup molasses

Directions

  1. Roll out dough to fit a 9-in. deep-dish pie plate or cast-iron skillet. Trim to 1/2 in. beyond rim of plate; flute edges. Sprinkle chocolate chips into crust; set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, combine flour and brown sugar; cut in shortening until crumbly. Set aside 1 cup for topping. Add the baking soda, water, egg and molasses to remaining crumb mixture and mix well. Pour over chips. Sprinkle with reserved crumb mixture.
  3. Bake at 350° until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean, 45-55 minutes. Let stand on a wire rack for 15 minutes before cutting. Serve warm.
