Sour Cream Raisin Pie Recipe

A hint of lemon gives extra zing to the creamy pudding-and-raisin filling in this homey dessert. Topped off with sweetened sour cream, it's sure to be a hit at your house. "I came across this recipe in a booklet quite some time ago," pens Patricia Kile of Elizabethtown, Pennsylvania. "To lighten it, I sometimes use low-fat sour cream instead of regular."
