Blind-Baked Crust


  • 2 cups sour cream,
  • 4 egg yolks,
  • 1 cup sugar,
  • 4 tbsp flour,
  • 1 tsp orange zest,
  • 1½ cups raisins.


  • 4–6 egg whites,
  • ¼ tsp cream of tartar,
  • ¼ cup sugar.


  1. Make the Blind-Baked Crust.
  2. Make the Filling: In a saucepan, mix together the sour cream and egg yolks. Add the sugar, flour, orange zest, and raisins, and stir to combine- Cook over medium heat until the raisins plump up. Pour the mixture into the pie shell.
  3. Make the Meringue: With a mixer on high speed, beat egg whites until frothy. Stir in the cream of tartar and gradually add sugar. Beat until peaks form. Spoon on top of the filling and dab at the meringue with the back of a large spoon, pulling back with each stroke to create decorative peaks.
  4. Bake at 350 degrees until the peaks turn brown, about 15 minutes.
