Easy Sour Cream Raisin Pie Recipe

For my family, this pie is as essential for Thanksgiving dinner as turkey, dressing and mashed potatoes! I've been told this recipe's been in the family since the 1860's.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 50 min. + cooling YIELD:6-8 servings

Ingredients

  • Pastry for double-crust pie (9 inches)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup (8 ounces) sour cream
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup raisins

Directions

  • 1. Line a 9-in. pie plate with bottom pastry; trim even with edge of plate. In a small bowl, beat eggs on medium speed for 1 minute. Add the sour cream, sugar, vinegar, cinnamon, cloves and salt and mix well. Stir in raisins. Pour into pastry shell.
  • 2. Roll out remaining pastry to fit top of pie. Place over filling; trim, seal and flute edges. Cut slits in pastry.
