TRADITIONAL TREACLE TART

treacle tart or molasse pie is a traditional British dessert made of shortcrust pastry or shortbread, topped with a thick mixture of brown sugar syrup (golden syrup), cream, ground almonds or molasses, lemon juice or zest.

The pie is normally served hot or lukewarm with a scoop of whipped cream, regular cream, ice cream or custard. A recent alternative is to replace molasses with almond powder. Other recipes add cream, eggs, or broth for a smoother filling. The oldest known recipe comes from English author Mary Jewry in her late 19th century cookbooks. 

This dessert was featured in the 1968 British fantasy film, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. The villainous Child Catcher, in an attempt to lure the kids out of the basement, announces that he is giving away free candy. In the Harry Potter book series, Harry’s favorite dessert is molasses pie, a dessert often found at Hogwarts parties. The “Molasses Pie” was the recipient of the 2012 Shekie Award for Pie of the Year.
