The Monday Recipe Blog
This blog features Lois Elaine Mueller's recipes every Monday. Lois' heyday was in the 1950's and 1960's, and her children swear she was the best cook that ever lived. Many baby boomers will remember these mouth-watering recipes, and these dishes are just as tasty today as they were in the sixties.
Today's recipe is called Japanese Fruit Pie. It sounds absolutely delicious, but I'm just not sure why it is considered a Japanese pie....

1 stick butter or butter substitute, melted
1 c. sugar
1 t. vanilla extract
1/2 c. coconut
1/2 c. nuts, your choice
1/2 c. raisins
1 T. lemon juice
1/2 t. lemon rind
Mi above ingredients together and pour into unbaked pie shell. Bake at 300 degrees for 50 to 60 minutes.
