Editor’s note: This is the final in a series of three award winning pie recipes, provided courtesy of the High Springs Pioneer Days pie contest winners.
Placement: First Place
Cook/Contestant: Marilyn Bennett
4 ripe tomatoes, peeled & sliced
8-10 large basil leaves, chopped
½ cup chopped green onion or chives
2 Tbs. self-rising flour
Pepper to taste**
2 cups grated mozzarella and cheddar cheese (combined)
1 ½ cup mayonnaise
One pre-baked 9” pie crust
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Layer tomato slices, basil and green onion in a pre-baked pie shell, alternating between layers, ending with tomatoes on top. Add pepper to taste. Mix together grated cheese, mayonnaise and flour. Spread on top of tomatoes to form a top crust. Bake for 30 minutes, or until lightly browned. Cool slightly before serving as a side dish with meats.
**Salt is not needed due to the amount existing in the mayonnaise and cheese.
