Straight from Amish country in PA. For some reason, friends of mine tht don't care for Shoofly Pie love these. This recipe is different in that it uses NO eggs. If you can keep them around, they taste even better the next day.
flour, all purpose
dark brown sugar, firmly packed
butter, very cold & cubed
1•In a large bowl, combine the flour, brown sugar and salt. Cut in butter until crumbly. Set aside 1 cup for topping. Add baking soda to remaining crumb mixture. Stir in water and molasses.
2•Fill paper-lined muffin cups two-thirds full. Sprinkle with reserved crumb mixture. Bake at 350° for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.
3Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks to cool.
