     GRAPE-PIE - Fruit pie made from green seedless grapes

     This recipe came originally from the Los Angeles Times Maga-
     zine.  It's unusual: I'd never before thought of using
     grapes in a pie before. But it's good!

     1 1/2 cups
               Graham cracker crumbs
     3 Tbsp    sugar
     1/3 cup   butter, melted
     3 tsp     cornstarch
     2/3 cup   sugar
     1/4 cup   cold water
     2 lbs     green seedless grapes, with stems removed
     1 Tbsp    lemon juice
     1 cup     sour cream
     1 Tbsp    sugar
     1 tsp     vanilla extract

          (1)  Preheat oven to 350 deg. F.

          (2)  Combine cracker crumbs, 3 Tbsp sugar, and butter.

          (3)  Reserve 1/4 cup of this crumb mixture and press
               the rest into a 9-inch pie pan.

          (4)  Bake at 350 deg. F for 8 minutes.  Allow to cool.

          (5)  Dissolve cornstarch and 2/3 cup sugar in cold
               water in saucepan.  Add grapes, and bring to boil,
               stirring constantly.

          (6)  Reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes.  Remove from
               heat and stir in the lemon juice.  cool.

          (7)  Spoon this filling into the baked and cooled
               crust.  Mix sour cream with 1 Tbsp sugar and
               vanilla and spread over pie.  Sprinkle with
               reserved crumbs.  Serve.

     Difficulty: easy to moderate (burns easily).  Time: 30
     minutes.  Precision: approximate measurement OK.
