pastry for a 9 inch single crust pie
fresh lemon juice
1 1/4 cups
I'm not a fan of molasses, so I didn't care much for the taste. I made this pie for my grandparents, who also have a Pennsylvania Dutch background. They loved it, and asked me to make it for them again soon.
This was nasty! I do not think that lemon juice and molasses go together.
Perhaps I am doing something wrong....
This is a wonderful one pie recipe. My Pennsylvania Dutch grandmothers recipe makes 4 pies. This recipe is spot on.....it's a very old fashioned pie. Folks used what they had and in the depression ingredients werent easy to get. You either like this mild flavored pie or you don't! I for one happened to love it because it brings back memories of my childhood favorites made by some wonderful cooks.
This was similar to a recipe I have, but mine called for 1/2 C. light corn syrup instead of molasses and only used 1/2 C. water and 1/3 C. sugar and 1Tbsp lemon juice for the bottom layer.
Could it be possible that the "bottom" portion of this recipe calls for too much water? A cup seems way too much and the bottom is watery. Help!
I had been searching for a Montgomery Pie recipe as it is one of my father's favorite pies. Please keep in mind that to us Pennsylvania Dutch people, molasses is King Syrup and that is what should be used in this pie otherwise it will be NASTY! Make that substitution and you will end up with a much better pie!
