Bringing back childhood memories......
What You Need:
4 cups Flour
1 ½ sticks Butter
(can substitute with 1 package Pillsbury Pie Dough)
2 cups Raisins
2 cups Golden Raisins
1 cup Sugar
Juice of 1 Lime
1/4 cup Flour
1 Egg Yolk
1 tbsp Heavy Cream
The first and most important step is to pour boiling water over the raisins and let sit 15 minutes. This will help the raisins become juicy and plump. Next, drain the raisins and return to the bowl. Immediately add the flour, lime juice, sugars, and butter, mix and let thicken.
If making homemade crust, but the cold butter into the flour with a fork or food processor. Do this until crumbly. Next slowly drizzle the ice water into the dough until the right consistent. Flour your rolling space and prepare to roll out 2 14 inch rounds.
Grease your 9inch Pie Pan. Lay 1 of the 2 Pie crusts into the pan, being sure to lightly press on to the pie pan, but letting the edges lay over the edge. Pour the raisin mixture into the crust.
XOXO and Happy Holiday Bakings!
