  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/3 cup chopped nuts (pecans are good)

Cover raisins with hot water for about 15 minutes to plump and soften them; drain well.

“This is my grandmother’s recipe for raisin pie that she has handed down to me. This is an unexpected pie to serve during holidays. It is a tasty pie, but very rich.”
