Raisin pie was a very popular pie with Grandpa and it was always what he requested on his birthday instead of cake. Grandmother certainly made this pie at least once a month and not only on Grandpa's birthday! With a raisin pie, it does not require having fresh fruit around for the filler. One could always have a bag of raisins in the pantry. As we all know, raisins are made from dried grapes. Did you know that they are a high-energy food supplement as well which makes them very popular in trail mixes. Raisins are linked with beneficial health properties. Raisins have fiber and aid in cleaning the digestive tract and they stimulate the burning of cholesterol. Raisins are also high in calories, so if you are watching your calorie intake you will want to limit the amount you eat. Raisins have long been a nice little finger size snack that moms give to their toddlers.

Tip: Pie fillings often leak out of the top of the crust and make a big mess in the bottom of your oven. To avoid any possible mess, just place a piece of aluminum foil on the lower rack to catch any drips.
