Raisin Cream Pie

I love Raisin Cream Pie. Whenever we visit our relatives in Kansas, we always eat at a local Mennonite Restaurant that has the most amazing Pie. It's so good that you have to order Pie first, just to make sure it will be available after your dinner. I always order Raisin Cream. It was one of my Father in law's favorite pies too.
Here's a simple Amish/Mennonite recipe for Raisin Cream Pie.

Here's what you'll need:
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
1 - 9" Pie Pan with 1- 9" Homemade Pie Crust. You can also purchase a crust.

2 C Raisins
2 C Water, divided
1/2 C Brown Sugar
1/2 C Granulated Sugar
3 TBS Cornstarch
1 1/2 tsp Cinnamon
1/4 tsp Allspice
A Pinch of Salt
1 TBS Apple Cider Vinegar
3 TBS Butter

In a Medium Saucepan on Medium Heat:
2/3 C Water
Cook for 5 minutes stirring often.
Set aside.

In a medium mixing bowl:
Brown Sugar
Granulated Sugar
Whisk well.
Gradually Whisk in 1 1/3 C Water
Whisk well.
Pour into the Raisins.
Return to Medium Heat and continue cooking just until it begins to bubble.

Continue cooking just until the butter melts and is combined well.
Remove from heat and set aside just until it's warm.

Pour into the Crust.
Bake for 15 minutes.
Remove to a rack to cool completely.

Peace in the Kitchen!
