#2666 - Scratch Crumb Pie

(by Aunt Faye [Herman] Minier)

2 - 9" unbaked pie crust doughs
1 cup Brer Rabbit gold label baking molasses
2 cups boiling water
1 egg
1 tsp. baking soda
1 cup Domino's dark brown sugar sugar
Crumbs: 2 cups flour; 1 cup Domino's dark brown sugar; 1/2 cup butter; 1 tsp. baking soda; pinch of salt

In a bowl add the egg--beat. Add 1 tsp. baking soda and 1 cup brown sugar--beat. Add molasses and boiling water--stir until mixed. Crumbs: in a separate bowl add flour, 1 cup brown sugar, 1 tsp. baking soda and salt--stir until mixed. Add butter--mix with a pastry blender to make crumbs. Place each pie dough into two separate greased pie plates--flute the edges and spray the inside of the pie doughs with Pam. Pour half of the liquid mixture into each pie dough. Reserve 1/2 cup crumbs (1/4 cup for each pie). Sprinkle half of the crumb mixture over the top of each pie, then stir it lightly with your finger. Sprinkle 1/4 cup reserved crumbs over the top of each pie. Bake at 375 degrees for 35 minutes.
