The following are instructions for Crown Maple’s Shoo Fly Pie.

How to make the crust:

  1. In a mixer or food processor, mix flour and cold butter until butter lumps have reduced to peanut size
  2. In a separate bowl, dissolve salt in water. Pour the salt water into the flour/butter mixture and mix until the flour is almost incorporated (so when you squeeze the dough with your hand, it holds its shape)
  3. Cover the dough in a bowl and rest in the refrigerator for 30 minutes
  4. Preheat oven to 425°F. Once ready, roll out the dough so it’s 1/8-inch thick (and about 2 inches wider than your pie dish)

  6. Place a sheet of parchment paper (similar size to your pie dish) over the crust; push into the edges, and place dried beans on top
