Grandma's Crumb or Sugar Pie


  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 heaping cup brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons shortening
  • 1 teaspoon soda
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk or sour cream
  • salt
  • 1 9-inch, unbaked pastry shell


Combine sugar, flour and soda. Cut in the shortening and blend well. Add the liquid and rub into coarse crumbs. Put crumbs loosely into the unbaked pie shell. Bake in moderate oven (375F) for 40 minutes. This is a breakfast treat especially good for dunking in coffee.
