Grandma Jacob's Sour Cream Raisin Pie

April 10, 2012

Author Notes: Over the past few months I've been sifting through a collection of recipes that were favorites of my husband's great grandmother, Grandma Jacobs. It's been amazing and fascinating to dig through these recipe archives. This recipe is a classic and favorite of many in my primarily Dutch hometown in Iowa. MadisonMayberry
