This is a very old pie commonly found in the Midwest. Although most recipes call for dark raisins, this one uses sultanas ( golden raisins). Use real maple syrup for the right consistency ( Grade B if you can get it). Best to use sour cream that is not low fat or fat free.

  • Roll out the pastry for the shell, and fit into a 10 inch pan. Sprinkle the raisins over the bottom of the crust.

  • Combine the egg yolks, egg, sour cream, syrup, sugar, nutmeg, vanilla, and flour in a bowl. Mix just until blended, not too much. Pour filling into the shell. Sprinkle a little more nutmeg on top. Bake 30 to 35 minutes, or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool, and then chill the pie.

Goes together so easily, it's beautiful. I used a sifter for the Nutmeg topping and sprinkled it on top that way (like you would with Powdered Sugar) then swirled it with a knife before baking! There's not a lot of sugar in the recipe so I was skeptical, but the Maple Syrup was JUST enough! Classic Old Time Sour Cream Raisin PIe! And better than some other recipes where you had to stove top everything first and then cool and then bake and then cool....so much simpler! Read More
