Grandma's Raisin Pie

Out of all of the recipes I've placed here, I forgot my favorite pie of all.

This pie brings back memories of Grandma. It"s also good for Thanksgiving and Christmas.

2 1/2 cups of raisins
a double crust pie shell
1/4 cup water
2 tablespoons of corn starch
a dash of cinnamon
1 tablespoon of sugar (for sprinkling on top pie after it is baked)


place the raisins in a pot and cover them enough water to cover them, add a dash of cinnamon and boil them for 5 minutes. Add 1 tsp of vanilla.
In 1/4 cup of water place 2 tablespoons of corn starch.

Thicken the raisin mixture, then pour into the pie shell and cover with the top crust. Cut a design into the top crust to vent. We use a wheat design.

Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes or until browned
After it comes out of the oven sprinkle with a tablespoon of sugar

Number of servings: 6-8 servings

Preparation Time: about an hour
