2 - 4 tbsp 30 - 60 mL ice cold water


1 cup 250 mL raisins
1 1/4 cups 300 mL corn syrup
1/2 cup 125 mL light brown sugar, packed

  4. Filling: Sprinkle raisins over pie shell. Whisk corn syrup with sugar, eggs, butter, lemon juice, vanilla and salt in medium mixing bowl. Pour into shell.
  5. Bake on lower rack of preheated oven for 15 minutes. Reduce temperature to 350°F (180°C) and bake 20 to 25 minutes until top appears set (it may be bubbly). Let stand 15 minutes before slicing.
