"Yellow raisins and pecans. This makes a very tasty "hand pie." My mother used to make this when I was a kid. Eggs were 15 cents per dozen, butter 15 cents per pound. She considered this expensive, and only made this for special occasions--church socials etc. My mother never cut this pie smaller than quarters." — Wally Glasgow

pastry for a 9 inch single crust pie
This is a great recipe. I made this for someone who had it when they were very little but could not remember what it was called or the ingredients. After some searching, I found this and it was it! I followed the recipe exactly as it was written and had enough filling for two pies. Very sweet! I made sure I took the time to whip the egg whites properly, too.
good pie! very rich and sweet, almost too much so. it only filled one pie crust though, the recipe was a bit misleading.
My grandmother used tomake this pie for me and my parents. It is a wonderful recipe. I am happy to find it to make for my family. Thanks.
