Sour Cream Raisin Pie

My friend Abby over at Farmer's Daughter is having a Birthday/Spring Celebration, she has planned a plethora of recipes, fun stuff and giveaways! I must join in with one of my favorite Pie recipes. A use for raisins, and for the locovores, eggs and sour cream. A heritage recipe from my Grandma, This pie is very rich and surprisingly sweet. And very easy to boot. Happy Birthday to Abby, my fellow Piscearean.

2 egg yolks (save the whites to make the meringue)
½ cup sugar
1 cup sour cream
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp allspice
1 cup raisins

Combine the above ingredients. Pour into baked pie shell< Bake pie for 45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Top with meringue. Swirl meringue over pie filling and brown in 350 degree oven for about 12 minutes or until meringue has golden brown peaks.

I've never heard of a pie recipe like this before. I like sour cream, though, and I really like raisins. You always seem to post the interesting recipes. Thanks!
