A good pecan pie with raisins in it. An old family favorite.
Mix the sugar, cinnamon, and cloves. Beat the egg yolks until light lemon colored and thick. Gradually beat the sugar mixture into the egg yolks. Add in the pecans, raisins, and melted butter.
Beat the egg whites until stiff but not dry, and fold into the sugar mixture along with the vinegar. Don't mix the egg whites and vinegar, just put the whites in the bowl with the rest and while you gently fold them in, drizzle in the vinegar. Mix well, but do not beat! Pour into the pie shell.
Bake at 450 degrees F for 10 minutes, then reduce to 350 degrees, and bake for 25 minutes more, until browned and set. Cool, chill, and serve with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream. MMM!
