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

Ingredients

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2-1/2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1-1/2 cups cold water
  • 2 cups raisins
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • Pastry for double-crust pie (9 inches)

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375°. In a saucepan, stir together sugar and flour. Add water and mix well. Stir in raisins, salt and cinnamon; cook and stir over medium heat until bubbly. Cook and stir 1 minute more. Remove from heat and stir in butter. Pour into a pastry-lined 9-inch pie plate. Top with lattice crust, or cover with top crust and cut slits for steam to escape. Bake until crust is golden brown, about 45 minutes.
