Family Recipe Friday - Raisin Pie

National Pie Day was earlier this week, so it seems appropriate to post a family pie recipe.  I loved this pie when I was a child.  It's actually been years since I've had it, but it was a good one.

Raisin Pie

Pastry for a double 9” pie crust

2 cups raisins
1 ½ cups boiling water
1 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 tablespoon vinegar
2 tablespoons butter

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Cook raisins in boiling water for 5 minutes. 

In a bowl, mix brown sugar, cornstarch and cinnamon.  Add to raisins and cook, stirring until it begins to thicken.  Add the vinegar and butter.  Cool slightly, pour into pie shell and cover with top crust. 

Bake for approximately 30 – 40 minutes or until top crust is golden brown.
