on Terminal type: which pdflatex

The resulting path will look like: /usr/texbin/pdflatex

in Texshop put the path in the preferences->engine, but ommit the  
"pdflatex": e.g. /usr/texbin

If "which" can't find your pdf-latex, you need to edit the  
file .bash_profile in your users directory and add the path /usr/ 
texbin to the PATH-variable... there should already be something like  
"declare -x PATH= ..." just add your path, seperated by a colon -  
just like all the others.

That should do it,
