OH YEAH!!! My family absolutely love this pie. The only thing I will do differently the next time I make it is double the filling recipe to better fill my deep dish pie pans. Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe!!!



Good as is, but adding finely grated lemon zest and lemon juice (instead of vinegar) makes for more depth of flavor. Once I did this, my mother-in-law (whose family was Pennsylvania Dutch) thought the taste was "just right."



This is a wonderful pie! My dad has been requesting a raisin pie for weeks. My mother (now deceased) used to make Dad raisin pies, but I never got her recipe, and I have not been able to find the one she used. I printed this receipe off and made it without making any changes. It was delicious! My dad loved it and said it was the best raisin pie he has ever had, and he has had many raisin pies over the years! I think this had to be my mom's recipe. It is very easy to make, and it tastes great! Thank you so much for sharing your recipe!
