Pastry for 2-crust 9-inch pie
Use green tomatoes of mature size. Dip into boiling water to loosen skins, then peel and core. Cut tomatoes into 1/4-inch slices. Sprinkle with lemon juice. Combine sugar, flour, salt and spices; mix with the tomato slices. Line a 9-inch pie plate with pastry. Fill with tomato mixture; dot with butter. Adjust top crust, cutting slits for steam to escape; seal. Bake at 450 degrees Fahrenheit for 15 minutes, reduce heat to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and bake 30 minutes longer.
