Sour Cream Raisin

Ingredients ~

  • 1 cup raisins
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • ¼  teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoons ground cloves
  • 1 Tablespoons flour
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 3 egg yolks, beaten (save the egg whites for meringue)

Method ~

Prepare 1 baked pie crust.  (Follow the “flaky Pie Crust Recipe” and bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes).  Boil the raisins in the water for about 5 minutes.  Combine the sour cream, cinnamon and cloves and add to the raisins and water mixture while it’s hot.  Beat the 3 egg yolks, then add 1 Tbs. flour and the 2/3 cup sugar.  Add this to the previous mixture and cook for about 1 minute.  Pour everything into a baked pie shell.  Top with meringue.

Meringue ~

In a mixing bowl, add 3 egg whites (no yolk at all, or it won’t work). Beat until egg whites begin to stiffen.  Add 2 Tablespoons sugar and beat until the whites “peak.”
