    Source of Recipe


    pastry for a one-crust, 9" pie

    1/2 cup molasses
    1 teaspoon soda
    1 cup boiling water
    pinch salt

    1 1/2 cups flour
    1 cup brown sugar
    3/4 cup butter or lard
    1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

    Dissolve the soda in the molasses and stir until it foams. Add
    the boiling water and salt.

    Mix the flour, butter, sugar and cinnamon into crumbs.

    Pour 1/3 of the liquid into the unbaked crust. Sprinkle 1/3 of
    the crumbs over the liquid. Continue with alternating layers,
    putting the final 1/3 of the crumbs on top.

    Bake in a 375degF oven for about 1/2 an hour until the crumbs and
    crust are golden.
