Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Press pie crust into a 9-inch pie pan and prick bottom and sides with a fork.
  2. Bake crust in the preheated oven until lightly browned, 10 to 12 minutes.
  3. Set a fine-mesh sieve over a bowl.
  4. Whisk brown sugar, white sugar, cornstarch, ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, salt, and allspice together in a saucepan; gradually whisk in half-and-half and molasses until smooth. Whisk egg yolks into molasses mixture.
  5. Cook molasses mixture, whisking constantly, over medium heat until large bubbles appear on surface, about 7 minutes. Reduce heat to low and cook, whisking constantly, for 1 minute more. Remove saucepan from heat and pour filling through sieve. Whisk butter into filling until smooth.
  6. Pour filling into pie crust, place a sheet of plastic wrap directly on surface of filling, and refrigerate until set, about 3 hours.
  7. Lightly beat cream in a bowl using an electric mixer until soft peaks form. Top each pie slice with a heaping tablespoon of whipped cream.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • Unsulphured molasses is the highest quality. It's made from the unsulphured juice of sun-ripened sugarcane.
  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.

It never set. I was upset because it was easy to make and sounded delicious.

the small amount of molasses is way too strong and I won't make this again

This is a confusing recipe. The magazine states there is a40 minute cook time. Here the recipe states there is a 20 minute cooking time. There needs to be specific directions to stir until the i...
