Old-Fashioned Raisin Pie Recipe

"My family came to Texas from Virginia after the Civil War," relates Debra Ayers from Cheyenne, Wyoming. "Two brothers helped drive a herd of cattle up the Chisholm Trail to Abilene, Kansas. The boys decided to stay in Kansas and open a meat market. They did well. One brother sent for his girlfriend back in Texas to come and marry him. She did, and she brought this recipe. The family has been making this pie ever since.
