Almost Amish Shoo Fly Pie

Well bless my little heart… truly me, no make up & messy kitchen.

Did you hear the pixie voice? What is bonnet fiction she asks… in case you are curious.. bonnet fiction is a term that I inherited from a fellow librarian. Bonnets refer to the books that are Amish or Mennonite inspired. They earned that name by the bonnets that amish and mennonites tend to wear. Some folks are put off by bonnet fiction thinking that it’s foreign or would have little for them to identify with. I find that the books, when well written, just present the human condition and that is universal. But there’s not a lot of graphic language which makes them a safe readers advisory recommendation in many instances.

Finished product:


Kids wouldn’t eat it. They are afraid of molasses. Hubby LOVED it. His description: coffee cake in a pie crust. Guess I was all wrong with that pecan pie w/o the pecans!!

Have you read Almost Amish or any other Kathryn Cushman books? What’s your go to recommendation for Christian Fiction?

  1. What a fun way to do a book review! Thank you so much for featuring “Almost Amish” and the nice things you said about it.
    We tried a multiple shoo-fly pie experiment at my house during the writing of this book. Out of 4 adults, only one of us liked any of them. The kids wouldn’t even talk about trying them 🙂
