The Gadfly Suite, Op. 97, by Dmitri Shostakovich
BBC Philharmonic, Vassily Sinaisky, conductor
For years I thought shoofly pie was just some mythical device in a catchy song. Shows you what I know.
Sandy Moyer, the Home Cooking Editor of BellaOnline, explains:
"Another year 'round favorite dessert and the most famous of all Pennsylvania Dutch pies is, of course, the Shoo-fly Pie, so-named because in years past, when pies were placed on window-sills to cool, housewives constantly had to 'shoo' away flies from their sweet and sticky pies. There are two kind of Shoo-fly pies - Plain Shoo-fly Pie and 'Wet-Bottom' Shoo-fly Pie, by far the most popular kind.
"This recipe is for the gooey, wet-bottom version."
