Tapioca vs. Cornstarch?

fat kitty | | Jul 21, 2007 04:02 PM

Hi. I have a cherry pie recipe that calls for tapioca to thicken the filling. I assume they mean tapioca flour. This is not something that I have around the house, but I do have cornstarch on hand. Can I substitute the cornstarch for the tapioca? And if so, is the ratio different than 1 to 1? Thanks for your help!
