Raisin Pecan Pie
Total TimePrep: 20 min. + chilling Bake: 35 min. + cooling
When I was growing up through my 40's, my Mother made this pie every time I saw my family. She called it Company Pie. Absolutely marvelous!
This is very similar to one I grew up with and called "Japanese Fruit Pie". It had coconut (and raisins and pecans) but no spices. I'll have to try this one sometime.
It's strange to me that this 'raisin' pie would represent Tennessee as one of it's best recipes. I've lived here my whole life and I've never heard of anything like this. There are so many wonderful foods and desserts here, this is surprising!
This was a family favorite, especially for holidays and company. Like most Southern pies, it is VERY rich. We called it French Nut Pie. My cousin served it to French company once and they assured her there was nothing French about it. They don't know anything about pecans! We love it anyway.
