Comment on this recipe

"This recipe was handed down to me by my mother-in-law, Jean Moeller (Shaefer), when I entered the family 23 years ago.

"It has been passed on for many generations, and is a loved and favorite of both young and old during the holidays."

Ingredients

3 eggs, separated
1 cup raisins
1 cup water
Pinch of salt
1 cup sugar
2 heaping tablespoons flour
1 tablespoon vinegar
2 tablespoons butter
Baked single-crust pie shell

MERINGUE:
3 egg whites
6 tablespoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Instructions

Separate eggs and save whites for meringue. Cook raisins in enough water to plump; drain.

Pour into baked pie crust and top with meringue. Bake at 400 degrees for 10 minutes to brown meringue.
