My boys can't wait to pick the first ripe tomatoes in our garden to be used in this terrific pie. It has a tempting filling and tomatoes layered in a melt-in-your-mouth crust. And the crust is so easy to make- you just pat the dough into the pan!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 17, 2012

This is extremely delicious and I make it every summer! I do modify it a bit and use about 1/3 cup mayo and the rest sour cream as I don't like mayo. I find it takes me longer to make as well as I am not good at peeling tomatoes!

Have made this several times and each time someone asks for the recipe. It is a favorite when we can pick the tomatoes from the garden.

When the tomatoes come in and its a hot summer night nothing makes a better light dinner with a salad!
