Raisin Custard Pie Recipe

Very easy to make, I have already made this recipe with cranberries. Both are very good!


  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 3 Tbsp. cornstarch
  • Advertisement

  • 2 cups milk
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 1 cup raisins
    bring raisins to boil - drain
  • 2 tsp. lemon juice - optional
  • 1 pastry shell (9 inches), baked
  • Meringue:

  • 3 egg whites
  • 1/4 cup sugar


In a large saucepan, combine sugar and cornstarch. Stir in milk until smooth. Cook and stir over medium-high heat until thickened and bubbly. Reduce heat to low, and cook and stir for 2 minutes longer. Remove from the heat.

Stir a small amount of hot filling into egg yolks; return all to the pan, stirring constantly. Bring to a gentle boil. Cook and stir for 2 minutes. Remove from the heat. Gently stir in raisins and lemon juice. Pour hot filling into crust.

For meringue, in a small bowl, beat egg whites on medium speed until soft peaks form. Gradually beat in sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, on high until stiff peaks form. Spread over hot filling, sealing edges to crust. Bake at 350 F for 10-15 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on a wire rack for 1 hour. Refrigerate for 1-2 hours before serving, and refrigerate any leftovers. Yield: 8 servings.


Variation: Cool filling in crust completely, then refrigerate. Just before serving, top with whipped cream instead of meringue. Whipping cream is the best (put a glob on a piece of pie before you serve)!

Servings: 8 Servings
Prep Time: 30 minutes
Cooking Time: 10 to 15 minutes until golden brown
