 Apple-raisin Pie
 Hi, Sally and all!  I made a "free form" apple-raisin pie using this recipe
 this past Saturday and served it at my Halloween party.  It was very
 popular with my omni/SAD friends!
 After making the pastry (see below) and letting it rise, roll it out into a
 16" round, transfer to a baking sheet (lightly sprayed with Pam) and add
 filling (about 8 chopped Granny Smith or other tart apples, 1/4-1/2 cup
 raisins, a bit of lemon juice, a little grated lemon peel, cinnamon, nutmeg
 and a Tbsp or so of cornstarch mixed with 1/2 cup of apple juice
 concentrate).  Fold the edges of pastry up around filling, leaving about a
 5" open space (hole) in middle for filling to peak through.  Cover the hole
 (only!) with aluminum foil and bake pie at 350 F for about 25 minutes. 
 Brush pastry with apple juice concentrate and bake for 5 more minutes or
 until golden.  May be served hot/room temp or cold.  YUM!
