Old Fashioned Raisin Pie

My grandmother used to make this pie in the winter when fresh fruit was scarce.  I don't know why, but I felt the urge to make one recently.  It was just as delicious as I remembered.

Have or buy the pastry for a two crust pie.

Put two cups raisins into two cups water.  Bring to a boil and cook about five minutes until the raisins are plump.

 Mix together 1/2 cup sugar and 2 T flour.  Stir these dry ingredients into the raisin mixture.

Cook this mixture, stirring constantly, until the mixture comes to a boil.  Cook, stirring, one minute longer.

Add one quarter cup lemon juice and stir well.

Pour on top of bottom crust. 

Add top crust and cut air vents.

Bake thirty to forty minutes at 425 or until crust is browned and juice begins to bubble through the slits in the pastry. 

Can be served warm or cold.

Especially good served with vanilla ice cream or yogurt.
