|⅓ cup||Butter, melted|
|¼ cup||Water, cold|
|2 pounds||Grapes, seedless (green), with stems removed|
|1 tablespoon||Lemon juice|
|1 cup||Sour cream|
|1 teaspoon||Vanilla extract|
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Combine cracker crumbs, about 3 T sugar and butter. Reserve ¼ cup of this crumb mixture and press the rest into a 9-inch pie pan. Bake at 350 degrees F. for 8 minutes. Allow to cool.
Dissolve cornstarch and about ⅔ cup sugar in cold water in saucepan. Add grapes and bring to boil, stirring constantly. Reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in the lemon juice. Cool.
Spoon this filling into the baked and cooled crust. Mix sour cream with about 1 T sugar and vanilla and spread over pie. Sprinkle with reserved crumbs. Serve.
* Fruit pie made from green seedless grapes -- This recipe came originally from the _Los Angeles Times Magazine_. It's unusual: I'd never before thought of using grapes in a pie before. But it's good! : Difficulty: easy to moderate (burns easily).
: Time: 30 minutes.
: Precision: approximate measurement OK.
