A traditional recipe that makes two 9-inch pies. You can really taste the molasses!

  3. In a large bowl, combine 2 cups flour, brown sugar, baking soda, cream of tartar, butter, and shortening; rub together with fingers to make crumbs.

So sorry to have to rate this low, but we couldn't finish it. It IS a matter of taste, we hated the molasses, it was overpowering. The recipe worked like it should have, near as I can tell, it set up etc., but we just didn't care for it at all.
