Great Grape Pie

     You won't find this recipe in any cookbook because it's one I made up after a disappointingly runny grape pie.  It's very easy, like all of my favorite recipes and WOW is it tasty.  Kind of like a grape cobbler instead of a pie.  Delicious with icecream or just warm out of the oven.

4 cups of Concord grapes
1 1/2 cups sugar
Cook these together and boil for about five minutes, smashing and stirring with a potato masher.  Then run it all through a food mill, getting as much of it as you can and just leaving seeds and a little pulp/skins behind.

Add 1/2 cup of flour, 2 tsp of lemon juice (I've used red wine vinegar in a pinch), 1/8 tsp salt, and a cup of Bisquick or Jiffee mix.  Pour all of this into a pie shell.  Top with the following:

1/2 cup of oats, 1/2 cup of brown sugar, 1/4 cup flour and a 1/4 cup of soft butter--mixed together until crumbly.

Bake for 15-20 minutes or until set at 425 degrees!  Get ready to smile--it's that good!
