Tell me more about Mom’s Easy Raisin Pie
When I was growing up, my mom used to make this old fashioned raisin pie for family desserts. I’m too old to remember if I had ever tried it as a kid but have always wanted to re-create it.
The problem is my wife hates raisins. How can you hate raisins? Anyways, I convinced her to at least try a bite of it if I made it and if she didn’t like it, then I would never make it again. Guess what? She liked it.
Thanks for the recipe mom!
I am thankful my mom still had her original recipe written down somewhere. I do have another variation of this recipe that will be posted in the near future.
In the meantime, I suggest you give this wonderful raisin pie a try. Especially if you like raisins, and if you don’t, this raisin pie might just convert you!
I’ve also heard that Martha Stewart has a Raisin Pie recipe. I will have to check it out one of these days and see how hers stacks up against mine!
Or better yet, maybe good ole Martha should try MY recipe and learn a thing or two! LOL. If any of you know Martha, send her a link to this recipe.
