Years ago my mother-in-law gave me this recipe. She said it came from the Pennsylvania Dutch. It is simple and delicious and because it's not super sweet, our son will occasionally eat a piece of pie for breakfast.
It makes 2 pies....and you're welcome :)
1 full cup Karo syrup (dark)
1 tsp. baking soda
1 cup boiling water
2 cups flour
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 stick butter
2 pie crusts
Combine liquid ingredients.
Combine crumb ingredients.
Pour liquid mixture into pie crusts. (Remember this recipe makes 2 pies.)
Sprinkle crumb mixture into liquid mixture.
Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes.
