Always check the publication for a full list of ingredients. An Eat Your Books index lists the main ingredients and does not include 'store-cupboard ingredients' (salt, pepper, oil, flour, etc.) - unless called for in significant quantity.

Notes about this recipe

  • anya_sf on July 11, 2018

    In the edition of this book I checked out from the library, this recipe did not call for any sugar or starch in the filling. However, others said their editions did, so I looked at similar recipes and decided to add 1/2 cup sugar, 1/4 cup brown sugar, and 3 Tbsp tapioca starch (I did not have arrowroot). I used extra fruit (probably 4 cups blueberries) as I had a deep-dish pie plate. The filling turned out well - very tasty, just the right sweetness. The crust was super flaky, although rather thick. Overall, the pie tasted very good, but I'm not sure I loved the allspice.
