Family Recipe Friday: Raisin Pie

Raisin Pie

Makes 8 servings

Weldon must have gotten his like for raisin pie from the LeMaster side of the  family as we discovered a recipe from his aunt, Ferry Mae (Bickel) LeMaster. 

It was published in a Jay County Historical Society Early Cooks book in 2004.

    2 cups boiling water                                           
    2 tablespoons cornstarch                                       
    Pinch of  salt                                                 
    1/2 pound raisins                                              
    1 tablespoon butter                                            

Cook raisings in the water until tender, add the rest of the ingredients except nutmeg.   Cook until thickened.   Pour into pastry shell.   Sprinkle on nutmeg, add top crust and bake at 450 for 30 minutes.
