Make a good paste, and having rolled it out thick, line a pie-dish with a portion of it. Then fill up the dish with molasses, into which you have previously stirred a table-spoonful, or more, of ground ginger. Cover it with an upper crust of the paste; notch the edges neatly; and bake it brown. This pie, plain as it is, will be found very good. It will be improved by laying a sliced orange or lemon in the bottom before you put in the molasses. To the ginger you may add a tea-spoonful of powdered cinnamon.
