  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. In a medium saucepan, mix together cornstarch, white sugar, salt, and nutmeg. Mix in sour cream. Add egg yolks, raisins, and lemon juice. Stir until thoroughly combined. Cook mixture over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture thickens and boils. Boil and stir 1 minute. Pour mixture into pastry shell.
  3. In a large glass or metal bowl, beat together egg whites and cream of tartar until foamy. Add brown sugar 1 tablespoon at a time, continuing to beat until whites are stiff and glossy. Beat in vanilla extract. Spread evenly over raisin filling, sealing meringue to crust edges.

My family loved this recipe! I did make one small change, which was rather than 3/4 t of nutmeg, I used 1/4 t nutmeg and 1/2 t cinammon. I will definitely use this receipe over and over again.


I made this pie yesterday for my father in law. I have never made nor tried SCR Pie before so I was going in it blind. I followed the recipe to the tea. I was a little disappointed that my meringue "shrunk". But I was going to leave the taste up to dad. (who I should say that has LOVED SCR pie since he was very very little, and his mom's was his FAV!!! Anyway, lets just say that my SCR Pie (this recipe) was just as good IF NOT BETTER then the one that his sister makes (who she was taught by my in laws mom!!!) WOW that was a wonderful compliment!!! So all in all I was very very happy that he loved this recipe and I am glad I went with it!!!


Wow! Best raisin cream pie ever. The custard is rich and creamy, but not overly sweet, and the delicate brown sugar meringue looks beautiful. My guests loved it and even my son, who said he didn't like sour cream raisin pie, came back for seconds.
