Gooey Bottom Shoo-fly Pie

Makes one 9-inch pie

 

Crumb Topping:
1 cup flour
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1/4 cup shortening
1/2 tsp. salt

Liquid Bottom:
1 cup boiling water
1 cup light molasses
1 tsp. baking soda
1 egg, beaten

 

Mix crumb topping ingredients together, using a pastry blender, until very fine. Set aside. Blend together water, molasses and baking soda. Add beaten egg mixing well. Pour into a 9-inch unbaked pie shell—a "deep pan" shell is preferable. Using a large spoon, mix the crumb mixture well into the molasses filling. Bake in moderate (325 degrees F.) for 35 to 40 minutes.
