Sour Cream Raisin Pie II

Rated as 4.25 out of 5 Stars

"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."

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F ( 190 degrees C).
  2. Roll out the pastry for the shell, and fit into a 10 inch pan. Sprinkle the raisins over the bottom of the crust.
  3. 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.

This was wonderful. My dad craves Sour Cream Raisin pie and I found this recipe and he just went crazy. So, now I am making him one for his birthday.

Very nice taste, and not too sweet. A must try for any raisen lover.

Good recipe. Had to bake for about twice as long as recommended. Will make again.

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! ...
