I've been making this pie for my dad forever and he LOVES it! It rarely lasts the day so I only make them on special occassions! The kids (9 and 6) say it's easy to make and they have begun helping me make it! Thank You!! Read More

I've never had a homemade raisin pie before but I (and my company) found it overpoweringly sweet. I had a small piece and could hardly finish it. I also thought it should have solidified a little more. Next time I'll try a different recipe. Thanks anyway! Read More

I traded some work for a pie. When I asked what pie he wanted he said Raisin Pie! Oh no...I had never even heard of Raisin Pie! I found this recipe and tried it. I substituted Splenda for sugar because he is diabetic. It was easy and he loved it; said it was almost as good as his mother's. I don't like raisins so didn't try it. Read More

Great basic recipe! I tweaked it a bit going off of other reviews...I decreased the water to 1 3/4 cups and increased the flour to 3 Tbsp. (make sure to whisk the ingredients in the saucepan to avoid lumps) Brought it to a bubble let it simmer for 5 minutes and then cooled it for 20 minutes stirring occasionally. I decreased the oven temp to 400 degrees for the first 15 of baking and turned it down to 325 for an additional 20 minutes watching the edge of the crust for over browning and then let it cool for 45 minutes. Turned out awesome! The filling was a perfect consistency and had a great flavor! Will make this again! Read More
