A personal favorite of mine
- 3 eggs, separated
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup sour cream
- 1⁄4 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1⁄4 teaspoon clove
- 1⁄2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 cup raisins
- 1 unbaked pie shell
- Preheat oven to 350.
- Beat yolks till light; add sugar, spices and sour cream.
- Dust raisins lightly with flour and add to egg mixture.Pour into pie shell and bake until set (approx.
- 45 minutes). Make a meringue using the 3 egg whites and add a dash of cinnamon to it. Cover pie and brown.
Not quite like I remember, but pretty darn good just the same. I've never put cinnamon in meringue before and I'll probably be doing it again with other pies as appropriate. This did take about 55 minutes to cook through, but the extra ten minutes wasn't an issue.
I made this pie twice now, first time according to directions. First it was too sweet for me, flavor is really good but too sweet. Second, 45 minutes isnt enough to cook it through. It was sticky and gooey. Second time I made this I cut the sugar back to 2/3 of a cup and up the time to 55 minutes. Its still in the oven but I am sure it will come out great. Thanks for a good recipe.
I also used 6" graham crackers crust. Brushed eggs whites over and baked at 350 degrees for 5 min. And Topped with cool whip.
