 over part of the mixture, gently toss with a fork.  Push to side of
 bowl. Repeat until all is moistened.  Form dough into a ball.  Divide
 dough in half.  Take half, on a lightly floured surface, flatten dough
 with hands.  Roll dough from center to edge, forming a circle about
 12 inches in diameter.  Wrap pastry around rolling pin.  Unroll onto a
 9 inch pie plate.  Ease pastry into pie plate, being careful not to
 stretch pastry. Trim pastry to 1/2 inch beyond edge of pie.  When
 pie shell is full with filling, roll out other half of pie pastry.  Cut pastry
 into 1/2 inch wide strips.  Weave strips on top of filling to make a
 lattice crust. Press ends of strips into rim of crust.  Fold bottom
 pastry over the lattice strips, seal and flute.  Bake as directed in

 NOTES : My grandfather used to love raisin pie, but I could not find the
 recipe in the collection that my grandmother had given me.
 These recipes came from Better Homes and Gardens and
 Betty Crocker, and sound very similar to what I remember.
