I have never considered raisin pies among my favorites -- until now! When I learned we had three unopened boxes of raisins in the cupboard I decided to give it a try and take it to a covered dish dinner tonight. I read most of the recipes and decided on this one primarily because it incorporat ed orange juice, orange zest and cinnamon, which were unique to this recipe. The result was outstanding with just enough tartness to make a big difference from most other recipes -- it even garnered praise from people who didn't like raisin pie! The results belie the ease of preparation. Definitely a repeater. Too bad we aren't allowed a sixth star! One comment -- I was fearful the finished product would be too watery so I poured off most of the unabsorbed liquid after plumping the raisins. Next time I will include all the liquid.

I was not sure about the cinnamon as I have never used cinnamon before in a raisin pie recipe.But its very tasty. My new favorite.

Not too terribly sweet, a wee bit tart. It was a major hit around our place. Today is the day after and I'm already baking the second one. Yummy.
