Adapted recipe distributed by The Pittock Mansion Society from the April 24, 1917(!) _Morning Oregonian_, this pie is very simple, clean, and quick to make, especially with a good stand or hand mixer.
Preheat oven to 325F
Have your favorite half-baked, cooled pie crust prepared and set aside.
Beat the egg yolks and sugar together until the mixture is light colored and mostly liquified.
Beat in the sour cream, spices, and salt (and Fiori di Sicilia if using--you can source Fiori di Sicilia from King Arthur Flour) until completely combined.
Beat in the chopped raisins.
In a separate bowl, beat the egg whites and Wondra flour until stiff peaks form. (You can use a smaller amount of coconut flour / chestnut flour, or other replacements if going gluten-free.)
Fold the egg whites mixture into the batter until combined.
Pour into pie crust.
Bake in center oven for 55 minutes.
Cool on rack. Sift powdered sugar over it, and serve with a dollop of unsweetened creme fraiche or crema Mexicana.
For this sweet filling, I prefer a basic butter / shortening crust with no added sugar, but your tastes may vary :-)
