Mum's Raisin Pie

My Mum baked all the time :) Her pies were to die for. I always liked her raisin pie the best!

Mum made her own pastry. She always used the recipe on the Tenderflake Lard and it turned out flakey and absolutely scrumptious every time. I'm not that ambitious and find the frozen Tenderflake pie crusts to be the closest to her scratch.
