I've been making this pie for my dad forever and he LOVES it! It rarely lasts the day, so I only make them on special occassions! The kids (9 and 6) say it's easy to make, and they have begun helping me make it! Thank You!!

I've never had a homemade raisin pie before, but I (and my company) found it overpoweringly sweet. I had a small piece and could hardly finish it. I also thought it should have solidified a little more. Next time I'll try a different recipe. Thanks anyway!

An excellent pie that's very quick and easy to make with few ingredients.

I traded some work for a pie. When I asked what pie he wanted, he said Raisin Pie! Oh, no...I had never even heard of Raisin Pie! I found this recipe and tried it. I substituted Splenda for sugar because he is diabetic. It was easy and he loved it; said it was almost as good as his mother's. I don't like raisins so didn't try it.
