Lea Measures SugarThis is another recipe from the Pat & Joe Stroup family.  Larry and I have always loved raisin pie and this recipe uses less sugar and more fruit, is really easy to make, and certainly delivers the delicious fruity raisin flavor that makes this such a treat! Oh, and by the way, the lattice work in the photo above was done by our four year old grandson. We hope you enjoy this recipe!
