Grape Juice Pie

Not too sweet, slightly sour, but oh so good!

  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 1 1/3 cups grape juice (I used 100% Concord grape juice)
  • 1 egg. slightly beaten
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 baked (9-inch) pastry shell
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 tablespoon sugar

Combine sugar and cornstarch in a 2-quart saucepan.  Stir in grape juice; cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until thickened and bubbly.  Cook 1 minute.

Add a small amount of hot mixture to egg, mixing well; stir egg mixture into remaining hot mixture.  Add butter and lemon juice; return to heat.  Bring to a boil, stirring constantly; boil gently 1 minute.  Cool.  Pour into pastry shell; chill thoroughly.

Combine heavy cream and sugar, beating until light and fluffy.  Spread on pie; chill.

Makes 8 servings.
