    The amount of tomatoes does seem a bit sparse. If you do increase the tomatoes, though, I’d increase the sugar, too. Green tomatoes, as you know are very tart with very little sweetness. I tried making a green tomato pie once that didn’t turn out very well.. It’s a recipe in my mom’s 1950 Betty Crocker Picture Cook Book. If I tried this recipe I’d probably add some cinnamon and nutmeg.

      Yum, Linda, cinnamon and nutmeg are great ideas for additions to the recipe!

    This is the recipe I use for Green Tomato Pie.

    1 quart of green tomatoes (fresh or canned*)
    1 1/2 cups of sugar
    3 – 4 Tablespoons flour
    1 teaspoon cinnamon
    Double pie crust (store bought or homemade)

    Put green tomatoes in an 8 inch pastry lined pie pan. Sprinkle with sugar, flour, and cinnamon. Top with crust. Bake in oven at 350 degrees.

    I usually mix the pie ingredients together; put the mixture in the pie crust, and top with the remaining crust. If using fresh green tomatoes, allow around one hour to cook.

    *My mom usually cans green tomatoes for this pie.

      Yum, thanks for sharing this, Donna!

    One of my Kansas grandmothers used to make Green Tomato Pie at frost time every autumn. She would pick all the green tomatoes off the vines the day for the expected hard frost. Then she would make the pies. I carry on the tradition.
