RAISIN PIE (Funeral Pie)

My Mother-in-laws recipe, and my Father-in-laws favorite. Often called Funeral pie because it was served at alot of German family funerals. My Mom-in-law never measured when she made pies so I had to watch over her shoulder when she 'measured' and I came up with this. It is a winner!
