I've never had it, but a friend just came back from pheasant hunting up by Mitchell, South Dakota. The folks running the camp made "sour cream raisin pie". He claimed it was great. I've never had it, let alone heard of it. I'm wondering if anyone from that area has a recipe that they'd be willing to share. I've seem some recipes on the web but I was wondering if any of the folks here from South Dakota could shed some more light on the subject. Thanks in advance....Greg

Yes, I saw the recipes on Google but I was looking for "the inside scoop". Maybe someone on here has grandma's recipe from the mid-west. I should have asked my friend if the woman at the farm was willing to share her recipe.

My Mom has a raisin pie recipe......... when she was a child in the middle of the sand dunes of West Texas's cotton fields her mother made it. The were dirt poor, but raisins were cheap and they were stored easily. I don't remember ever eating one but here's her recipe.
Grrrrr..... threads in a melt down mode I'll log and try again in a min.
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
2 tablespoons vinegar
2 cups sugar
1 teaspoon allspice
1 cup raisins
2 tablespoons milk
Melt Butter, add sugar and eggs, add remaining ingredients and pour into pie crust.
I can't tell you its good, but I can tell you it's old and no doubt made in an 8". No doubt frugally. I have some of the old pies like a fake apple pie made with soda crackers, pressed dried fruit pie, butter milk pie, etc... not what you see today. And nearly all the ladies made fried pies with dried or canned fruits. I am babbling quick shoot me!
