Crust: 3 – straightforward
Filling: 3 – very rich and dark.
Overall: 3 – first off, I love the name. I really wanted to like it but it was just too rich. A sliver of this with a whole bunch of ice cream would be ideal.
This pie looked awful and tasted awful. I couldn’t even swallow the first bite! Crust was fine but really couldn’t evaluate it as I hated the pie.
Schadenfreude was there joy in my suffering as I tried the pie, I hope not. The pie was not my fav. I could taste the German spice but just did not work for me.
I liked this one, but it was so rich I couldn’t finish. I liked the gooey, spicy center and classic crust. It needs something light paired to cut the heavy sweetness.
Filling: 3 Filling is pretty good. Nice consistency. Distinct Molasses flavor is just little strong for me.
Very rich and gooey good. VERY strong molasses flavor. Nice crust on filling. Would probably serve with whipped heavy cream to cut some of the sweetness.
Crust held up fairly well to all the syrups and sugars. Was like baklava on the bottom. Yum!
Crust: 3 normal
Filling: 4 Smooth, yet the molasses was too strong.
Overall: 3 Might get a 4 with the fancy molasses (which is hard to find locally).
