This delicious green tomato pie is made with a filling of green tomatoes, sugar, and cinnamon. It's great -tasting double crust pie, and a fun pie to make for friends and family. For a different sweet treat using green tomatoes, give green tomato cake a try.

Ingredients

  • 6 to 8 medium green tomatoes
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon butter ​pastry for a 9-inch 2-crust pie

Steps to Make It

  1. Wash the green tomatoes well; peel and slice.

  2. In a saucepan, combine tomatoes with lemon juice, lemon zest, salt, and cinnamon. Cook the spiced tomato mixture over low heat, stirring frequently.

  3. Combine sugar and cornstarch; stir into tomato mixture. Cook mixture until clear, stirring constantly. Add butter, remove from heat, and let stand until slightly cooled.

  4. Line a 9-inch pie plate with pastry; pour in tomato mixture. Cover with top pastry, seal edges, crimp, and cut several small slits in crust to allow steam to escape.

  5. Bake at 425 F for 35 to 45 minutes, or until nicely browned.

  6. Serve warm or cooled and enjoy!
