I bought these ground cherries in Mennonite country in Pennsylvania, while visiting my son. I was told they make a great pie, but I had no recipe. Luckily, thru "all recipes", I found this recipe. It was delicious. I might cut down on the sugar if I'm lucky enough to get any more of these ground cherries - but it was a treat.

I purchased ground cherries at the near by Mennonite produce auction. I found this recipe and it was great.I used 4 cups of ground cherries for a larger pie. I did increase the flour in the pie. It was so easy and is sooooooo delicious. I did not increase the sugar. The cherries become more sweet when they cook.
