My mother was Pennsylvania Dutch, and this looks a lot like how she made Shoofly Pie.  It's kind of a crumb cake in a pie shell.  We always had it at Thanksgiving and other holidays, and, sometimes just as a special treat when the whim took her.  There are moister versions, and the most authentic use molasses, and they're delicious, too; but hers looked like this one, and she usually preferred to use dark Caro syrup.
