How to make it

  • In a small covered sauce pan, cook raisins with water until liquid is absorbed (about five minutes). Allow to cool.
  • Combine sugar and flour. Add beaten egg yolks, sour cream, cinnamon and vanilla.
  • Cook in a double boiler until mixture begins to thickened. Mix in raisins, and pore into prebaked pie crust.
  • Spread with meringue.
  • Meringue:
  • 3 egg whites
  • 4 tablespoons sugar
  • Beat egg whites until stiff, but not dry, in the clean bowl of an electric mixer, gradually adding in sugar.
  • Spread meringue on top of raisin filling. Sprinkle lightly with sugar.
  • Bake at 350°F until meringue is lightly golden (about 12 minutes).
  • Makes two 8 inch pies.
  • Serve at room temperature with whipped cream.
