ingredients together in a large saucepan. Bring to a simmer and cook for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat
and set aside to cool.

TO MAKE PIE CRUST: Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Combine crust ingredients in a large bowl until a soft ball of dough is
formed. Add more juice if necessary.

TO ASSEMBLE: Divide dough into 2 pieces, one slightly larger than the other. Place larger ball of dough onto a lightly
floured surface and roll into a 9 circle. Place larger circle of dough into an 8 pie plate. Spoon filling into crust.

Roll remaining ball of dough into an 8 circle and place on top of filling. Seal and crimp edges. Cut 3 or 4 steam vents in top.

Bake for 10 minutes. Reduce heat to 325 degrees and bake until crust is lightly browned, about 30 minutes. Cool before
serving.
