My mom's Cretan raisin pie. A delicious Raisin Pie from my Mom that will surprise you! A flavorful pie that will you leaving for another piece! To prevent your pie shell from shrinking as it bakes, put rolled pastry in a pie plate, then place an empty pie plate inside it.
Golden raisins are more plump and moist than dark, since they have been treated with sulfur dioxide to prevent darkening. Add apple slices, raisins, and vanilla; toss until well coated. Cut pie into wedges and serve warm or at room temperature with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream. You can cook My mom's Cretan raisin pie using 7 ingredients and 2 steps. Here is how you cook that.
Ingredients of My mom's Cretan raisin pie
- You need 1 cup of olive oil.
- You need 1 cup of orange juice.
- It’s 1 cup of raisins.
- It’s 1 package of baking powder.
- It’s 250 g of sugar.
- Prepare 3-4 tbsp of spoon sweet (whatever you like, but what tastes better is grape or quince! And if it is homemade, even better!).
- Prepare 500 g of flour, maybe a bit more, so that you get a soft dough.
Don't skip that teaspoon of vinegar in the pie dough—it helps make the finished crust tender. Mom made this sauce and no one could figure out why it was so good. I just found the recipe in her recipe box she left us!!! The brown sugar, cinnamon and mustard are a great combination of flavors in this great raisin sauce.
