Total: 1 hr 10 min
Prep: 25 min
Bake: 45 min
Makes 8 servings

Pastry for 2 crusts:
1 1/3 cups sugar
1/4 cup plus 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 1/4 teaspoons ground nutmeg or ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon salt
4 cups green tomato slices, cut into fourths
1 1/4 teaspoons grated lemon peel
1/4 cup lemon juice
1 tablespoon butter or margarine


Heat oven to 425 F.

Mix sugar, flour, nutmeg and salt. Toss with tomatoes, lemon peel and lemon juice. Turn into pastry-lined pie plate. Cut butter into small pieces; sprinkle over tomatoes. Trim overhanging edge of pastry 1/2 inch from rim of plate.

Roll other round of pastry. Fold into fourths and cut slits so steam can escape. Unfold top pastry over filling; trim overhanging edge 1 inch from rim of plate. Fold and roll top edge under lower edge, pressing on rim to seal; flute as desired. Cover edge with 2- to 3-inch strip of aluminum foil to prevent excessive browning; remove foil during last 15 minutes of baking.

Bake 35 to 45 minutes or until crust is bown and juice begins to bubble through slits in crust. Serve warm.
