 Categories: Desserts, Fruits, Pies
      Yield: 6 servings
      1 x  Recipe for 9" 2 crust pie
    3/4 c  Brown sugar; firmly packed
      2 t  Instant tang orange drink; *
      2 t  Lemon juice
      2 t  Butter or margarine
     15 oz Raisins; 1 pk, 3 c
      2 t  Cornstarch
  1 1/4 c  Water
      1 c  Walnuts; coarsely chopped
  *    Any type of Instant Orange Breakfast Drink will do.
  ++++ Divide the pastry almost in half and roll out the larger half,
  on a lightly floured surface, to a 13-inch circle.  Line a 9-inch pie
  plate with the pastry and trim the pastry 1/2 inch beyond the rim of
  the pie plate. Combine the raisins, brown sugar, corn starch and
  drink mix in a 3-quart saucepan.  Stir in the water and lemon juice.
  Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture boils
  and thickens. Remove from the heat and stir in the walnuts.  Turn the
  mixture into the pastry-lined pie plate and dot with the butter.
  Roll out the remaining pastry to an 11-inch circle.  Place the top
  crust over filling and trim the edge to 1-inch beyond the rim.  Fold
  the top crust under the bottom crust and form a ridge.  Flute the
  edge and cut steam vents in the top crust. Bake in a preheated 400
  degree F. oven for 30 minutes or until the crust is a golden brown
  and the filling is bubbly. Cool on a wire rack.
