This recipe is 'The Holidays' for me. I remember the smell filling the house 60 years ago when my mom was cooking it. At the end of the tomato season, when the remaining tomatoes in the garden will not ripen, this is a great use for them. A note from my mother: I put a heaping teaspoon of tapioca on the bottom crust before I fill it. It will absorb some of the liquid.

  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). Press 1 pie crust into a 9-inch pie dish.

  • Pour green tomato filling into the pie crust; top with the second pie crust, crimping the edges together to seal.

  • Bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes. Decrease oven temperature to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) and continue baking until golden brown, 20 to 25 minutes.
