Apple Raisin Cream Pie Recipe

This is a super pie that my whole family likes, made from ingredients we usually have on hand—we keep one cow for our family milk supply, and she provides plenty of cream! We run 850 head of crossbred cattle on our ranch, and my husband, our two kids and I spend a lot of time on horseback working up hearty appetites! I enjoy baking and cooking special events. As president of our local CowBelle chapter, I do a lot of cooking with beef.

"This is truly the best pie in the world. I've been making it since it won in Country Woman in 1990 or something like that... Unusual, and brilliant."
