Sour Cream Raisin Pie

You’ll Need:

2c Sour Cream
4 Egg Yolks
1 3/4c Sugar
4tsp Flour(heaping)
1 1/2c Raisins

1 baked 10-inch single-crust pie shell
Meringue
Yields 1 (10-inch) pie


Procedures : Stir the sour cream and yolks in a heavy medium saucepan. Add the sugar. Dump in the flour, then rains, and mix using a wooden spoon.
Cook over medium heat until the raisins are plump and the filling is glossy (about 5 minutes after a full boil, or just a little longer,
depending on your burner).

Cool the filling slightly, then pour into the cool crust. Preheatoven to 400. Prepare meringue and spread onto pie. Put the pie in the
oven. Watch closely for 15 to 20 minutes, then take it out when the peaks are golden brown. Let it cool. Eat immediately or keep in a
cool room. Do not refrigerate unless keeping it overnight.”

Meringue: Place 12 medium egg whites in bowl. Add 1/4 heaping teaspoon cream of tartar. Beat until stiff, using an electric mixer on high
speed. Add 2 cups powdered sugar and beat until meringue forms soft peaks. Using a “licker” (a rubber spatula), spread onto pie filling,
making a good seal with the edge of the crust. The person who does this recipe says that large eggs don’t do well with this – she uses
small eggs…

I hope this is the recipe that the person on rec.food.cooking was looking for. I c an’t say how this recipe works – as I haven’t used
it – however, this recipes is from the cookbook written by Helen Myhre who owns the Norske Nook in Osseo, Wisconsin… Apparently this cafe
came into national recognition a while back – Willard Scott ate there as well as Charles Kuralt… She claims that her recipes are just
plain farm cooking.

applesauce-spice-cake recipe

You’ll Need:

1/2 cup molasses
1 cup applesauce
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. cloves
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 3/4 cup flour (I use whole wheat pastry flour)
2 tsp. ginger (optional)

Procedures : Combine the molasses and applesauce in a large bowl. Combine remaining
ingredients and stir into the liquid. (If the batter seems very dry,
add a little more applesauce or a little water.) Bake in a nonstick or
pan-sprayed 8*8-inch baking pan, in a 350 degree oven, for 30-45
minutes or until it tests done.

The optional ginger makes an acceptable gingerbread. I have also had
success leaving out the ginger and adding 3 or 4 tablespoons of cocoa
(I guess you could use carob) to make a tasty but not very sweet or
rich chocolate cake. If you use cocoa you might need to add extra
sweetening, but that depends on your taste.
