Sour Cream & Raisin Pie with Meringue Recipe at
FOR PIE: In a small saucepan add enough water to raisins to cover. Bring to boiling. Remove from heat. Cover and let stand 5 minutes. Drain raisins; set aside. In a medium mixing bowl use a rotary beater or wire whisk to lightly beat egg yolks just till mixed. Stir in sour cream, sugar, milk, flour, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, the nutmeg, cloves, and raisins. Set aside. Prepare pastry as directed, except stir in 1 teaspoon cinnamon with the flour and salt. Roll out and line a 9-inch pie plate with pastry. Trim and crimp edge of pastry, or attach cutouts. Pour raisin mixture into pastry shell. To prevent overbrowning, cover edge of pie with foil. Bake in a preheated 375° oven for 20 minutes. Remove foil and bake 20-25 minutes more, or till center appears nearly set when shaken. Remove pie and reduce oven temperature to 350°.

FOR MERINGUE: In a mixing bowl combine egg whites, vanilla, and cream of tartar. Beat with an electric mixer on medium speed about 1 minute, or till soft peaks form (tips curl). Gradually add the sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, beating on high speed about 4 minutes more, or till mixture forms stiff, glossy peaks (tips stand straight) and sugar completely dissolves. Immediately spread meringue over hot pie filling, carefully spreading to edge of pastry to seal and prevent shrinkage. Bake in the 350° oven for 15 minutes. Cool on a rack for 1 hour. Chill 3-6 hours before serving. Store in the refrigerator.
