"This is the second time I have made this. It is a knockout. For the top crust. I use phyllo dough to at least 12 deep. n This makes a wonderful flaky and somewhat exotic pie. I also used non instant clear-gel instead of cornstarch. Serve this with a scoop of rum raisin ice cream."

"This recipe was so much easier than "slipping the skins off, etc". The cinnamon and lemon zest give a nice subtle flavor, a bit like cherry pie. I was out of corn starch and used flour-which resulted in a bit more loose juice. I put in the frig to firm, but I think I may up the cornstarch when I make it again."
