Mom's Raisin Pie

My Mom made delicious pies of all kinds! Because she baked pies so often, she didn't always have fresh or canned fruit with which to make them. On those days she made raisin pie, which we all loved.

After I was married, I was so happy one day to find raisin pie at my town's local coffee shop. But after I took one bite, I knew that it wasn't like Mom's.

After that, my sister made raisin pie occasionally, and brought me a piece. It is fun to revisit home with a taste from the past!
