Several generations have made " Mama's Raisin Pie".  Many, many raisin pies have been eaten by the Okonskis.  Helen Okonski Hays in 2006(above) is holding a "Mama's Raisin Pie".  It seems the raisin pie is the first to go & usually on Okonskis' plates before they eat any other food.  It is yummy-yum-yum.

1/2 box raisins
1 cup sugar
1 T cornstarch
cinnamon, optional

Put enough water to cover raisins, add sugar & cornstarch.  Bring to boil and cook on medium for approx. ten minutes.  Put in unbaked pie crust.  Bake at 350 degrees until crust is brown.

Crust yet to come.
