I found this recipe in my early years of cooking, and it's been a favorite of my five children ever since. It's different, zesty and flavorful. I prefer to serve it warm.

"I forgot to say (in the review I just wrote) to replace the flour with the 3 tablespoons of Minute Tapiocia"

"This was a delicious pie. An elderly lady in our church, told me to keep from having a soupy fruit pie, add 3 tablespoons of Minute Tapiocia, it will never fail. I've

found this to be very true."
