Green Tomato Pie
2 recipes cornmeal dough
1 cup sugar
1/3 cup flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspon ground cloves
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper
6 large green tomatoes, sliced 1/4 inch thick
(do not use stem end)
1/2 cupgolden raisins
2 tablespoon cider vinegar
3 tablespoon butter
Combine flour, cornmeal and salt in a bowl. Stir in mix. Cut in shortening with
two knives or pastry blender until mixture resembles fresh bread crumbs.
Sprinkle on water, a tablespoon at a time, stirring with a fork after each
addition. Add just enough water so that the dough can be shaped into a ball; it
will be quite soft. Roll out half of the dough and fit into a 9 inch pie pan.
Combine sugar, flour, salt, cloves, cinnamon and red pepper in a shallow
bowl. Stir with a fork to mix. Coat 1/3 of the tomato slices at a time with the
sugar mixture. Spread all of the slices evenly over the dough in a pan. Sprinkle
with raisins and top with any remaining sugar mixture. Drizzle with vinegar
and dot with butter. Roll out remaining dough and cover filling with pastry.
Crimp edges and cut two or three small vents in the top crust. Bake at 425
degrees for 40 minutes, or until the crust is golden and the juices bubble
around the edges of the pie. Serve at room temperature.
