I couldn't tell you how old this recipe(very old) is but it is one my Mother fixed for my dad. He was a lover of pies and Raisin was one of his favorites of many. I love Raisin pie and always brings back memories of my dad when I make it. If you have never heard of Raisin Pie or have never eaten it, try it once, you'll love it!
