Grandma's Raisin Pie

My Grandpa loved raisin pie, It's one of those pies that is considered Old Fashioned. Grandma didn't make a traditional Raisin Pie, because she didn't use sour cream. She didn't like sour cream. She made hers with evaporated milk. She always called it "Pet Milk". As that was the brand she used.  




 Ingredients
    • 1 cup raisins
    • 1 cup evaporated milk
    • 2 egg yolks
    • 2 Tbsp. flour
    • 1 cup sugar
    • 1 pre-baked pasty shell



Directions

Put 1 cup water on raisins and cook for 10 minutes.  Add sugar, and continue to simmer. Add milk. Beat the two egg yolks, add a little of the warm liquid from the pan and beat together. This tempers the eggs to prevent them curdling in the hot mixture. Add back to the pot and whisk until well Incorporated. Last add the flour and whisk until smooth. Cook another 15 minutes until bubbly and thick.  Pour into the baked pie shell. Cool Pie for 15 minutes, then refrigerate for 2 hours before serving.
Top with a little whipped topping and enjoy.
