    Here is another recipe for raisin pie that is really good. The sour cream gives it the extra flavor. I was raised in the eastern part of Iowa and this pie is very popular there.

    Ferne Walton Cole’s Recipe

    This was my father’s favorite pie.

    1 large cup raisins
    3/4 cup sugar
    3 eggs –separate yolk and whites
    3/4 cup sour cream

    1 tsp vanilla
    1 heaping T cornstarch
    1 tsp butter or margarine
    1 baked pie shell

    Cook raisins in a small amount of water until soft, add sugar and butter. Beat egg yolks in a bowl, add small amount of sour cream, then cornstarch, stirring thoroughly to dissolve; then add rest of sour cream. Add to the boiling raisin mixture, stirring constantly until thickened; add vanilla. Pour into baked pie shell. Use egg whites to make the meringue.

    Meringue – beat the egg whites until very stiff; then mix in a little sugar. Spread on top of pie., making peaks. Brown in oven, under the broiler, until lightly browned. Watch the pie very carefully as the meringue will brown quickly.

    My grandma made this pie for us back in the day. We lived in an Amish community but I think this is a German family recipe. So good! She passed away in 1956.

    This is very much a German recipe…..my Grandmother came from Germany right before the first WW broke out…and my mom grew up making this and passed it along to me…of course all the other Germans in our family were making it too…..

    Kevin– If you wanted to give us an image of an untouched slice of pie, you should have just simply ordered a second piece…. ;o)

    Now, I like raisins, but I have to tell you about the “De-li-mi” (sp?), a now defunct diner near where my husband used to live that was famous for its homemade pies. The raisin cream pie was the only one hubby couldn’t stomach. I wonder if theirs was anything like this one? With so many yummy recipes to try, I’m not sure if I’ll ever get around to trying this one!

    I am a big fan of raisins but not pie so I think I will forget about the crust and the baking time and try this as a Raisin Pudding…sounds yummy!
