Raisin pie

Raisin pie:

2 cups raisins

2 cups milk

2 tablespoons flour

2 tablespoons cornstarch

1 1/2 cups sugar

4 eggs, separated

10-inch pie shell, baked

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar

In a saucepan with a small amount of water, heat raisins until they plump. Drain, and set aside to cool.

In another saucepan, mix milk, flour, cornstarch, sugar and egg yolks. Cook over medium heat until thick and creamy. Fold in raisins. Pour into baked pie shell.

In a bowl, beat egg whites with vanilla and cream of tartar until stiff peaks form. Spread over raisin filling, and bake in a 350-degree oven for 10 to 15 minutes to brown the peaks.
