Country Molasses Pie
Pies & Pastries
Mix the first 3 ingredients together, using the hands, and pinching mixture until very fine. Add the water to the molasses and soda and beat until this is foamy and rises. Pour this into a pie pan lined with pastry (a deep pan is preferable) and taking a spoon, mix the above crumbs well into the molasses filling. Bake at 325-F for 30 minutes.
