Recipe by Kevin Ryan
"This a pie seen quite often in Amish homes. Because it is easy, quick, and made from non-seasonal ingredients, it was often taken to the family of those grieving over a passing."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

Very sweet, very rich, VERY delicious - made even richer and more delicious by the dollops of double cream we served it with. If you want a festive pie (for example if you really hated the person who’s died), replacing a bit of the water with a slug of booze (I used rum) kicks it up several notches. Although, granted, it might not be a very Amish thing to do! I can thoroughly recommend Grandma's Secret Pie Crust from this site to make it.
"Funeral pie" is a recipe that mainstream American cookbooks have featured for years (I have several 1930s cookbooks that feature it). Its reputation as a pie for mourners is well-established, but as for its Amish origin, I've never heard such a claim made. Even if this recipe can't be appreciated as Amish, it's an old American classic -- and I think everyone can appreciate THAT! :)
This was very good. Made for my mother who loves raisins. I don't care for them in quite such abundance (don't care for mincemeat, either). I made this twice. Once as-is (I think every recipe deserves that), and once modifying it so that it appealed to other family members who wanted something less "mince meat like." I stirred in 1/2 cup of pecans in place of 1/2 cup of raisins, and, I stirred in 1/2 cup of chocolate chips. The end result was something like a "Chunky Raisin Pecan Candy Bar." The menfolk much preferred this version.
This pie was absolutely delicious! And everyone got a big kick out of the name!
I substituted dried fruit medaly (Australian) with dried apple apricot peaches sultanas etc. Definately a keeper. Yummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm
This is a lovely pie: an excellent taste, and so easy to make. My family loved it, I'll be sure to make it again!
This was delicious, like a sweeter, subtler version of mincemeat pie. Everyone in the family liked it, but we did change the name to "Amish Raisin Pie" because "Funeral Pie" was a little morbid.
This was the greatest Thanks for the recipe I'll use this alot
