Image result for raisin pie

Today at work the residents made 21 pies. They talked about all kinds of things.
PD said " I never made a good pie in my life !" lol !
LVD said she made plenty !
And they talked about raisin pie. The recipe had lemon juice in it LVD said.  So I found one. And we are going to make some.

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (225 degrees C).
  2. In a large saucepan, combine water, sugar, flour, salt, vanilla, butter or margarine, and lemon juice. Mix well, then stir in raisins. Simmer over low heat for 10 minutes, stirring frequently. Remove from heat.
  3. Pour raisin mixture into pastry-lined pie pan. Cover with second pastry. Seal edges and cut steam vents in top.
  4. Bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes, then lower the heat to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) and bake an additional 25 to 30 minutes.
