To top off many meals, Mother baked an amazing array of pies—there was something to satisfy everyone's tastes. Besides my favorite—this Raisin Pie recipe—there was one each of pumpkin, mincemeat, pecan, apple and cherry. We had scrumptious leftovers for days! —Patricia Baxter, Great Bend, Kansas

"It's hard to find a plain raisin pie recipe and this is a good one."

"I'm so glad to find this recipe here. I had copied it out of the Reminisce magazine many years ago, but lost it in a kitchen remodel this summer. I've made this pie many times, and it always receives rave reviews. The pure, rich raisin flavor is intense and appeals to raisin lovers, and pieces of this are the first to disappear at our community Fourth of July celebration. I also appreciate the fact that in all of the times that I've made it, it has never run over and made a mess in the oven. My great-grandmother was an excellent cook, but this recipe for raisin pie is definitely superior to hers."

"I tried this recipe and was very

disappointed, would not make again.Way too bland & tasteless. I found my Mother's recipe and it has seeded raisins. lemon juice & orange peel. Everyone likes my Mom's recipe."
