Old Fashioned Raisin Pie

Ingredients

4 C. water

4 C. raisins

1 C. light brown sugar

5 T. cornstarch

1/2 tsp. cinnamon

1/2 tsp. salt

2 tsp. lemon juice

3 T. butter (not margarine)

1 tsp. vanilla extract

2, 9″ deep dish pie shells

Directions

Combine raisins and water in a med. pot, bring to a boil and cook for 5 minutes. Blend the brown sugar, cornstarch, cinnamon and salt together, slowly stir into the hot raisins.

Cook and stir until the syrup has thickened (happens pretty quick). Remove from the heat and stir in the lemon juice, butter and vanilla. Cool slightly.

Pour the raisin filling into one of the pie shells, remove the pie crust from the other shell and place on top, sealing the edges by pinching them together. Use a knife to make a couple of slits in the top of the pie.

Bake in a 425 degree oven for 30-35 minutes.
