RECIPE: Raisin Pie

khandiDecember 13, 2006

This is my grandmother's recipe. However, my mother told me that my grandmother used to simmer the raisins with the brown sugar and cinnamon.

Raisin Pie

1 cup boiling water

2 cups seedless raisins

¾ cup brown sugar

½ tsp cinnamon

4 Tbsp flour

Cold water

¼ tsp salt

2 Tbsp butter

1 Tbsp vinegar

1 tsp vanilla

Add raisins to the boiling water and simmer for 5 minutes. Add brown sugar and cinnamon. Mix flour into a soft paste with cold water. Pour and stir the flour paste into the boiling raisin mixture; stir and cook until thicken.

Add salt, butter, vinegar, and vanilla.

Bake in hot oven 425 F until pastry dough is brown and cooked, 30-35 minutes.

Forgot to include that I wouldn't bake this pie at 425 F for 30-35 minutes. I like to bake my pies at 400 F for the first 10 minutes, and then reduce oven temperature to 350 F until golden brown and bubbly. But that's just me LOL
