--- Bottom Part ---
3/4 cup dark corn syrup
1/4 cup molasses
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 whole egg, lightly beaten
1 cup water, boiling
--- Top Part ---
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons vegetable shortening
2/3 cup brown sugar
1 whole 9 inch pie shell
whipped cream

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Prepare 1 unbaked 9-inch pie shell.

BOTTOM PART: In medium size mixing bowl, combine corn syrup, molasses and water; stir in baking soda. Beat a little of the molasses mixture into lightly beaten egg, stir this back into the mixing bowl.

TOP PART: With pastry blender, mix together flour, shortening and brown sugar until it is the texture of coarse crumbs. Take 1 cup of the crumb mixture and mix it into the molasses mixture, then pour into unbaked pie shell. Scatter remaining crumbs on top.

Bake in 400-degree oven for 25 minutes or until crust is lightly browned and filling is puffy. Remove from oven, let cool to room temperature before cutting. Top with whipped cream.
