I absolutely positively love this recipe. It tastes a lot like a cherry pie but lighter. For the top crust I use a lattice style. I think a full crust would have been too much for this light Delicious Pie.

Very good, and quite unusual. My crew really enjoyed it. Just a hint - I saved a disposable aluminum pie plate and cut out the bottom. When a recipe calls for covering the edge of a crust with foil, I grad this, turn it upside down on the pie, and we're good to go. Fast, easy, and reusable.

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.
