Susie B's Tomato Pie

Many of us are still getting bumper crops of tomatoes out of our gardens. My friend Susie Bullock shared this recipe with me via Facebook the other day and I had to share it!  She is enjoying her garden this year as many of us are here in Texas due to the great rains we are getting.  Susie has a precious family and with two daughters attending Texas A&M this fall!  

I know you will enjoy it as much as her family and friends!  

Susie B's The Tomato Pie Recipe 

Pie Crust:

1 1/4 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup Crisco
3 Tablespoons of ice water

Mix flour & salt together and then add the Crisco. Use a fork to mix it until it crumbles, and then add the water a tablespoon at a time. Knead the dough and then roll it out.  I used a round cake pan to get the deep dish effect.

Tomato Pie:

5 sliced fresh tomatoes (or I'm sure you could use canned ones too) 
1/2 an onion
Garlic Salt to taste ( I used a teaspoon)
Hidden Valley Ranch dry seasoning (I used 1 tablespoon)
1/2 cup sour cream
1 1/2 shredded cheese
Sea Salt to taste
Pepper to taste

Drain the tomatoes in a strainer and then add the other ingredients and stir.

I baked the pie crust in a 350 degree oven for about 10 minutes, and then pulled it out and added a layer of cheese to prevent the crust from getting soggy when the tomato mixture was added.  I  then put it back in the oven to cook for another 10 minutes. Then I pulled it out and added the tomato mixture and sprinkled a little cheese on top. Put it back in the oven for about 15 minutes or so.

I hope that you like it as much as I did.
