  1. This was great tasting. The golden raisins added a unique flavour to the filling. This is definitely a keeper. Thanks for sharing. UPDATE: try using recipe #13619 you'll save some $ and it is real easy. Use the food processor and simply pulse adding 1 tablespoon of water at a time until a dough ball is formed. Just divide in half, flour the rolling pin and surface and roll out your top and bottom crust. You can use the pie dish to check size just go about 1 inch larger on both crusts and you'll be fine...super easy
  2. Loved this recipe. A nice change from the norm with the addition of the raisins and almonds. I will definitely make this again. Thanks for posting!


As you can tell, I'm from Georgia---a rather tattered old Southern Belle by now, but still feisty, I'll have you know!! I've been married to the same DH for 35 years, and we have two sons. My sweet and lovely stepdaughter has given us two little grand- daughters who are the lights of our lives. We had an antique shop for 7 years back in the late 80's, and I think we are getting back into the Biz next month--not a regular shop again, but just doing some of the shows once or twice a month. I love to read(I collect biographies),do needlepoint and cross-stitch, go antiqueing, and visit the grandbabies. My very favorite cookbook is "The Joy of Cooking" by Irma Rombauer. I got it at my first bridal shower, and it's still the best for just basic good cooking. I have tried to get rid of most of my pet peeves in the hope that other people will overlook my many faults if I overlook theirs--that's not to say that I don't want to scream at people who are in the turn lane and don't watch for the turn arrow, but, hey, I have my windows rolled up and they can't hear me, can they?? Since we are retired, I have the month off thingie, but if I had the $$$, I would take the train ride across Canada from Montreal to British Columbia, visit with I hope our-soon-to-be in-laws in Vancouver, drive down the Cali- fornia coast to visit relatives in San Diego then drive across the U.S. stopping to see whatever we wanted to see.
