This dish keeps showing up on the internet...in a couple of different blogs and variations of it all over Pinterest.
I finally gave in and gave the recipe a try. You can read the ingredients and measurements by clicking here.
I peeled, de-seeded and diced my fresh tomatoes. The recipe calls for chives and mayonnaise and I had neither. I used Miracle Whip as a stand in for the mayo and used frozen corn in place of the fresh corn that was called for.
The dough part of the recipe is more like a biscuit dough than a pie crust. It's pretty easy to work with. I divided it into three since I was using a mini pie pan.
(The third crust got a smear of butter and sprinkled with sugar, then baked flat for a sweet treat)
I cut the filling ingredients in half for a smaller pie. Basically, you layer tomatoes, corn, cheddar, basil, salt and pepper.
Repeat the layers...
A mix of lemon juice and mayonnaise gets drizzled over the top.
Then the top crust...
Cut slits in the top and bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for about 45 minutes.
Whoa! That dough rises!
It's a good recipe. Probably the results would have been better if I had made a full size pie.
My husband liked it but he thought there was too much crust for the filling.
He did manage to eat the sweetened extra crust I baked though...with a bowl of pudding! I think he was just holding out for that!
