You're sure to gain lots of friends with this popular Pennsylvania pie. It's old-fashioned goodness from simpler times.

What You'll Need:
  • 1/4 cup plus 1/3 cup firmly packed brown sugar, divided
  • 1/4 cup molasses
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons all purpose flour, divided
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter, melted
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 unbaked 9-inch pie shell
What To Do:
  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
     
  2. In a small saucepan, combine 1/4 cup brown sugar, the molasses, egg, water, and the 2 tablespoons flour. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture thickens. Remove from the heat, cool for 5 minutes, then stir in the vanilla; set aside.
     
  3. In a large bowl, combine the remaining 1 cup flour with the baking soda; add the remaining 1/3 cup brown sugar, the melted butter, and cinnamon, stirring with a fork until crumbly.
     
  4. Pour the molasses mixture into the pie shell; top with the crumb mixture, sprinkling evenly.
     
  5. Bake for 40 to 45 minutes, or until light golden. Cool before serving.
