Milk Flitcher Pie

Rated as 3.67 out of 5 Stars

"This is a very old Pennsylvania Dutch treat, a sort of milk and sugar pie made usually for children, as a way to use up leftover pie dough. This makes an odd-looking pie, but it tastes better than it looks. I have heard this called many names, among them Slap Jack, Flippy, Shlop Boi, Flitche, Flabby, or even Stingy Pie!"

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. Combine the flour and sugar in the pie shell, and mix together using your fingers. Pour in milk, and again, mix with your fingers to avoid damaging the crust. Dribble in the molasses, and dot with butter. Sprinkle cinnamon over the top.
  3. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes in the preheated oven, then turn the oven down to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C), and bake for an additional 15 minutes, or until the filling is set, and the top is browned.


  • Note
  • Half and half cream may be used in place of milk for a richer filling.

It was so neat to see this recipe! My grandmother who is Pennsylvania Dutch made this for me as a child when we had left over scraps. She had a mini pie tin and would make me a "milk shlope." ...

This should be called "Disaster Runny Molasses Pie"! I hate to write a bad review but I think this is warranted to help prevent others from trying this waste of time recipe out. I grew up in Pen...
