Place in a bowl 1 cup flour, 1/2 cup sugar (good measure), 1/2 cup
butter and lard, or all butter is better (scant measure). Some like a
little grating of nutmeg, especially if part lard is used. Mix or
crumb the ingredients well together with the hands to form small
lumps, or rivels. Line pie-tins with a rich pastry crust and strew the
rivels thickly over and bake in a quick oven. A couple tablespoons of
molasses spread over the crumbs is liked by some. This is a favorite
pie or cake of many Pennsylvania Germans.
