Directions: Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Preheat a large saucepan over medium heat, add butter or oil and onion and sauté until translucent. Add water and whisk in the gravy mix, heat stirring frequently until it comes to a boil. Mix in turkey, apples, raisins, lemon juice and spices. Combine all ingredients together well and heat until just heated through. Pour into a large ungreased baking dish. Roll out pie crust on a floured surface.
