Original recipe yields 1 pie



  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Divide pastry dough in half and roll out. Fit one pastry circle into a 9 inch pie pan. Cut the other pastry circle into 1 inch strips for lattice top.
  2. Combine raisins and water in a large saucepan. Simmer over low heat until raisins are plump and tender, about 10 minutes.
  3. In a separate saucepan, mix together sugar and flour. Whisk in milk, butter or margarine, and salt. Cook over medium heat until thick, stirring constantly. Stir raisins into milk mixture. Pour filling into pastry-lined pie pan. Cover filling with pastry strips in a lattice design. Crimp edges.
  4. Bake in preheated oven for 40 minutes, until crust is golden brown.

This pie is super easy to make and has now been added to my recipe library. My family loved it! In using a 9-inch pie pan, it did make a shallow pie, so next time I would double the raisins and the "sauce" mixture. I added vanilla to the mixture just before pouring into the pie pan for additional depth of flavor. I think that adding rum or butter extracts would also create wonderful taste variations. I sprinkled granulated sugar on top of the lattice crust for a crispy, sweet touch. This pie goes together fast, it uses inexpensive ingredients most of us already have in our pantries, and the results are delicious! This pie is perfect for experimentation like adding nuts, apples, pears, etc. I recommend it to anyone that loves fruit pies.



Great raisin pie! This recipe is exactly how my Grandma Kate use to make her pie and no one has ever matched it until this recipe. I thought the recipe was lost forever. If you love raisins, you'll love this recipe. Thanks Jean & your Mother. Peggy



The best we have ever tried. My husband had three pieces and said it was the best I have made in 15 years! Perfect recipe as is of course using the best ever pie crust recipe found on this site as well.
