Many years ago the Liberty Restaurant was known for its chili and hot dogs and they were also known for their wonderful Raisin Pies.
Last month I went to my attic and found this old hand written recipe for Raisin Pie and wondered if this was the same Raisin Pie that I had enjoyed as a child.
So I called my Greek friend George Christy, his uncle owned the Liberty and he agreed that this may be the old recipe for Raisin Pie that we loved as children.
Well needless to say I just had to bake this pie and it was wonderful!

Do any of you remember eating Raisin Pie or do you have a family recipe for this pie that you would be willing to share with me?

Thanks for your help....Merrry Ho! Ho!

** vcm comment: I seem to remember this pie having a little more spice flavor so the next time I bake this pie I’m going to add a ¼ teaspoon of allspice to see if this may be the missing ingredient.

Granny’s Old-Fashioned Raisin Pie

INGREDIENTS

2 cups raisins  vcm: increase to 2 1/2 cups raisins
2 cups water or vcm: 1 ½ cup of water and ½ cup of dark rum as per granny
1/2 cup packed dark brown sugar
2 tablespoons cornstarch  vcm: increase to 3 tablespoons cornstarch
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon vinegar vcm: apple cider vinegar
1 tablespoon butter 
1 double unbaked pie crust  vcm: 9 inch pie pan

DIRECTIONS:

Combine raisins and water and boil for 5 minutes. 
vcm I poured the boiling water and rum mixture over the raisins in a covered dish and let the raisins soak up this wonderful boozie mixture for several hours then reheated and continued to next step.
Blend sugar, cornstarch, cinnamon and salt.
Add to raisin liquid and cook, stirring until clear.
Remove from heat.
Stir in vinegar and butter. Cool slightly. Turn into pastry-lined pan.
Cover with top pastry cut several vents in top.
 vcm: brush with egg wash
Bake at 425 F about 30 minutes or until crust is golden brown.

Makes 1 pie (8 servings).

Thanks for the raisin pie recipe. The Liberty was a great place back in the 40's and 50's.

Does anyone have a idea on the recipe for the cinnamon bread role that the Hotel used to serve years ago, or did they buy the item?

Does anyone have the recipe for licorice ice cream that Park Street ice cream used to make?

Thanks
Tom

Foxpoint, that wonderful cinnamon bread roll was made in house and I don’t have a clue who may have that recipe. I do hope that the new owner will bring back some of the old recipes that we all loved so well.

Does anyone have the recipe for licorice ice cream that Park Street ice cream used to make?
OMG! I do hope you get an answer to this question. Park Street Ice Cream was the best.!

I’m getting ready to bake the 50 year old recipe that I found last month in the attic for Greek Walnut Pie. After reading the recipe I think I may have to add a warning at the bottom that states you must wear pants with an elastic waist before you sit down to eat this pie.

QUESTION: Was it Weber’s that sold those wonderful big Breaded Tenderloin Sandwiches?

I don't remember the Breaded Tenderloin Sandwiches, but I sure remember the wonderful hotdogs you could get as your entered the store on the left side at the front door.

Liberty had the best hotdogs and chili back in the 50's and 60's. I used to love to eat breakfast there. I always got there ham and cheese omelet and home fries. They had a great cook. Bill Donham was in the restaurant many times I ate there.
