Fresh Red Raspberry Pie Recipe

Saturday, July 4, 2009

This is a fresh Red Raspberry Pie..Berries grow wild in Upstate NY and in the summertime.. as kids,we would go pick them for mom knowing that pie was going to be our treat and reward in the end.... the anticipation of mom's fresh pies baking always seemed to take too long waiting to cool and many of us burned the roof of our mouths.

A childhood favorite and mom's best recipe.

  1. This looks fabulous! I plan to try it with local fruit - either strawberries or mangoes or both. I'll have to replace the sugar, since I'm diabetic and find ways to cut the calories, but NOT change the basic recipe.
    Thank you for it!

  2. delicious pie! I love how you used fresh raspberries, fresh ingredients always make food and baked goods taste better!
