As a native Louisianaian, this is a great recipe with the following changes: 1) Leave out the raisens, 2)double the filling, 3)REDUCE the temperature to 335, and REDUCE the bake time to 27 minutes - the published time/temp will overbake, 4) generously brush the outside of the pastry with olive oil just before baking, 5)for the icing use 1 block of cream cheese, 1/2 stick butter, 1 teaspoon lemon juice, 1/4 cup milk, and add powdered suger to the consistancy you like. 5) For best results use unbleached & unbrominated all purpose flour. 6)To leave a nice hole in the middle, use a 4" diameter baking ring in the center.
