Green Tomato Pie

User Rating 4.5 Star Rating (2 Reviews)


Green Tomato Pie
This delicious green tomato pie is made with a filling of green tomatoes, sugar, and cinnamon. It's a great -tasting double crust pie, and a fun pie to make for friends and family.


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


Wash the green tomatoes well; peel and slice. In a saucepan, combine tomatoes with lemon juice, peel, salt, and cinnamon.

Cook tomato mixture over low heat, stirring frequently.

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.

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.

Bake at 425° for 35 to 45 minutes, or until nicely browned. Serve warm or cooled.
