Raisin Pie

Mother’s Day is fast approaching and I’m sharing my mom’s absolute favorite pie. This may not be one we all crave, but I love making my mom happy and this pie does the trick. Moms have sacrificed and given so much to us. How fun to be able to make them a small something (like their favorite dessert!) to make Mother’s Day a little more special. This raisin cream pie has even won me over. Creamy, smooth, and flavored with rum, it is absolutely delicious!

Course: Dessert
Cuisine: American
Keyword: dessert, pie, pie crust, raisin
Difficulty: Intermediate
Method: Baking
Author: Kaleb


For the pie

  • 1 ½ cups sugar
  • 16 oz sour cream
  • 3 tbsp flour
  • ¾ cup raisins
  • ¼ cup golden raisins
  • ¼ cup dark rum
  • 3 egg yolks

For the meringue topping

  • 3 egg whites
  • ¼ tsp cream of tartar
  • ¾ cup sugar


For the pie

  • In a heavy-bottomed pan, mix together sugar, sour cream, flour, raisins, and rum. Place over medium heat and mix continually for 6-10 minutes until thickened.
  • Off heat, add three beaten egg yolks slowly to hot mixture, stirring briskly so they do not cook. Place back on the heat and cook for another 3-5 minutes until the consistency of a thick pudding.
  • Once at the desired consistency, let cool for 10-20 minutes. Then pour into a baked and cooled pie shell (see my best pie crust recipe). Let cool in the refrigerator before adding the meringue topping.

For the meringue topping

  • Using a stand or handheld electric mixer, mix egg whites until they are broken up and foamy. Add cream of tartar and continue mixing until soft peaks form.
  • With the mixer running, slowly add sugar, one tablespoon at a time, and mix until firm peaks form (peaks that stand on their own).
  • Spoon meringue over chilled pie, creating peaks and valleys (all for a beautiful presentation!) and place in a preheated 350°F to 400°F oven (depending on how close you watch it) for 5-15 minutes.
  • Serve immediately or keep in the refrigerator until you are ready to serve.
