Ingredients
  1. Basic Pie Dough (recipe below)
  2. 2 medium green heirloom tomatoes, finely chopped and drained
  3. 1⁄3 cup golden raisins, finely chopped
  4. 1⁄4 cup plus 3 tablespoons sugar, divided
  5. 1⁄4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  6. 1⁄4 teaspoon kosher salt
  7. 1⁄8 teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg
  8. 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  9. 3 tablespoons heavy whipping cream
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. On a lightly floured surface, roll each dough disk to 1⁄8-inch thickness. Cut 12 (4-inch) rounds and 12 (3 and 1⁄2-inch) rounds. Place 3 and 1⁄2-inch rounds on prepared baking sheet.
  3. In a medium bowl, combine tomatoes, raisins, 1⁄4 cup sugar, cinnamon, salt, and nutmeg. Place a heaping tablespoon of tomato mixture onto each 3 and 1⁄2-inch round.
  4. Using a pastry brush, brush edge of each 4-inch round with egg. Place 4-inch rounds over tomato mixture, and press dough edges together using a fork. Brush tops of pies with cream, and sprinkle with remaining 3 tablespoons sugar.
  5. Bake until golden brown, 20 to 26 minutes. Serve warm.
