3/4 c sugar 1/4 t nutmeg
1/4 c cornstarch 2 T lemon zest
1 t ground coriander 3 T fresh lemon juice

Preheat oven to 375°F. Line bottom of pie pan with pie crust.

Mix the dry ingredients together, then toss with papaya and zest and juice. Fill in the pie crust with all of fruit mixture. Roll out top crust and lay over papaya. Vent and crimp edges attractively. Bake in oven for 70 to 80 minutes or until bubbling. Check doneness at 1 hour. If pie gets too dark, cover loosely with foil. Remove from oven and let cool at least 1 hour on cooling rack before serving.
