We loved this pie. The only complaint I had is that is was kind of weepy. The flavor was great though. Have made it three times. I think that next time I will increase the tapioca to 6 tablespoons and see if it helped. My son-in-law said it was the best he has ever had. Thanks for sharing.
Yummy!!! I cooked the filling in the microwave and then added it to the crust and adjusted the baking time. Worked great!!
We loved the taste, however I had to adjust the cooking times as my crust came out too well done.
This pie was very sweet with 3 cups of sugar. I made it a second time and only put in 1 cup of sugar. That was enough to add some sweetness but keep some of the tartness. I also increased the tapioca to 6 Tablespoons so it would be a bit firmer set.
One of the best pies I've ever tasted! It got rave reviews from dinner guests, too. 3 cups of sugar sounded like an awful lot, but I followed the recipe exactly and the pie turned out sweet-tart and was just right served a la mode. The cloves and nutmeg really go well with this fruit combo, better than just cinnamon as most recipes call for. With 6 cups of fruit, I decided to use my deep dish pie pan and increased the pie dough recipe by 20%. Good thing I put a pizza pan under it, as it did bubble over a bit near the end of the baking time. Try it with Oil-Based Pie Crust #463127 (adjust yield to 1.2 pie crusts for deep dish).
This did not work well for me.
