I grew up near a famous cafe' known for their pie and I first tried sour cream raisin pie with my grandmother there. This pie has special memories for me and I think of her when ever I make this pie.

The pie is very easy to make and very tasty. The instructions said to add butter but it didn't have butter in the recipe. I did a double crust also.
