Raisin Pie


Baked 9" pie shell
1 1/3 c. seeded raisins
2 c. water
3 eggs, separated
1 c. sugar
2 Tbs. vinegar
2 Tbs. flour
2 Tbs. butter
Meringue (3 egg whites)


Add raisins to water in saucepan and simmer 5 minutes. Beat egg yolks, sugar and flour until light and creamy. Slowly add to raisins. Cook, stirring constantly, until filling is thick, 4 to 5 minutes. Remove from heat, stir in butter and cool until lukewarm. Pour raisin mixture into pie shell and top with meringue. Bake in moderate oven (350) until meringue browns, 12 to 15 minutes. Cool away from drafts.

Meringue Topping:
3 egg whites, room temperature
1/4 tsp. cream of tartar
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. vanilla
6 Tbs. sugar
Place egg whites in a medium bowl with cream of tartar, salt and vanilla. Beat until entire mixture is frothy. Do not beat until stiff. Add sugar a little at a time, beating well after each addition. Do not under beat. Beat until sugar dissolves to help prevent beading. Continue to beat until stiff. Spread on top of pie and bake.
