The Smell of Autumn

The house was filled with the scent of autumn today. I made this wonderful pie that is similar to one my grandmother made me when I was little. It's sort of like pecan pie, but made with raisins, walnuts and a healthy dash of cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg. It smells absolutely wonderful and tastes even better!

Spicy Raisin Walnut Pie

3 eggs
2/3 c. sugar
1/3 c. melted butter
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1/2 tsp. ground cloves
1 c. light or dark corn syrup
1/2 c. coarsely chopped walnuts
1/2 c. raisins

Heat oven to 375 degrees. Prepare pastry, beat eggs, sugar, salt, cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg, corn syrup and butter with hand beater until blended. Stir walnuts and raisins in. Pour into pastry lined pie pan and bake until set, 45 to 50 minutes.
