Ingrients & Directions

Recipe For 9″ 2 Crust Pie
15 oz Raisins; 1 Pk, 3 C
3/4 c Brown Sugar; Firmly Packed
2 tb Cornstarch
2 tb Instant Tang Orange Drink; *
1 1/4 c Water
2 tb Lemon Juice
1 c Walnuts; Coarsely Chopped
2 tb Butter Or Regular Margarine

* Any type of Instant Orange Breakfast Drink will do.

Divide the pastry almost in half and roll out the larger half, on a
lightly floured surface, to a 13-inch circle. Line a 9-inch pie plate
with the pastry and trim the pastry 1/2 inch beyond the rim of the pie
plate. Combine the raisins, brown sugar, corn starch and drink mix in a
3-quart saucepan. Stir in the water and lemon juice. Cook over medium
heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture boils and thickens. Remove
from the heat and stir in the walnuts. Turn the mixture into the
pastry-lined pie plate and dot with the butter. Roll out the remaining
pastry to an 11-inch circle. Place the top crust over filling and trim the
edge to 1-inch beyond the rim. Fold the top crust under the bottom crust
and form a ridge. Flute the edge and cut steam vents in the top crust.
Bake in a preheated 400 degree F. oven for 30 minutes or until the crust
is a golden brown and the filling is bubbly. Cool on a wire rack.
