This is another of the pie recipes from the 1958 Good Housekeeping Party Pies book mentioned previously on this blog.  There are also several pie crust recipes on this blog if you don't have your own favorite.  It is recommended you do this pie with a trellis crust design also pictured previously on this blog.

Combine 2 cups seedless raisins, 1 cup granulated sugar, 2 cups water, 1/2 teasp. salt, 2 tablesp. butter or margarine, 3 tablesp. lemon juice; boil 5 min.  Stir in 2 tablsp. cornstarch mixed with 3 tablsp. water.  Cook, stirring, 5 min.  Add 1 teasp. lemon extract.

This pie is pictured in the center of this picture with the 'trellis' crust.
