"Good pie recipe, excellent, tastes just like apple pie!!!"

Reviewed Sep. 5, 2014

"I have made this for my church picnic potluck. When I made it I added apples that I sliced thin and mixed in between the tomato slices. I also added plump raisins to my pie. This was the first time and first time for the church members to try. They all enjoyed it very much and ate it all. [Apples good to use: Granny Smith, Gala, Winesap or Braburn]"

"Made this pie and took to a potluck. Everyone thought it was an apple pie! I may add one more cup of tomatoes the next time I make it."
