Fresh Raspberry Pie

With the raspberry season beginning, it is time to roll out those berry recipes! We had a birthday party at the beach for two special 'sons' last night and found out that fresh raspberry pie with a sparkler makes a fine birthday cake.

Fresh Raspberry Pie:
  • 1 baked 9 or 10-inch pie crust
  • 4 cups of fresh raspberries
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 3 tablespoons raspberry jello
  • 3 Tablespoons cornstarch
  1. In 4-cup glass measure or small mixing bowl, combine water, sugar and cornstarch.
  2. Microwave at High for 2 to 5 minutes (until thickened and clear) stirring every minute.
  3. Stir in raspberry jello. Cool about 10 minutes.
  4. Pour carefully over the berries in the pie shell.
  5. Refrigerate several hours; serve with whipped cream.

Enjoy the ultimate summer dessert together with some good friends.

* The glaze is one I adapted from a fresh peach pie recipe and works well in any flavour!

  4. looks like i have trouble with spelling

  5. Judy, we just got home from a country bakery that sells exactly this type of pie .. .but they have nothing on your pie. Your presentation is just gorgeous and manageable to serve as well. They may look impressive sky high but how on earth are they cut and served properly.
    I have made this glaze for years and love it with peaches, strawberries and blueberries too.

  6. Yummy! This looks good! I'm so glad for the glaze recipe!

  7. unbelievable! Wow...I had to set that pie as a desktop picture for work will make me think of you and our yummy blog

    Will try this one for sure

  8. Oh, I love raspberries! What a beautiful pie, I can't wait to try it!

  9. Oh my your food looks so delicious. I'll be back to get the recipe for the raspberry pie. The photography is so beautiful, too. Have you ladies thought of making a cookbook?

  10. This is truly a favorite.
    I love this recipe, only your's looks a bit more presentable.
    We usually let everyone put on their own whip cream or ice-cream.
    Great presentation.

  11. Just found your girls website, and I have to say it makes my mouth water. I can't wait to try this recipe this coming summer. Thanks for sharing all these wonderful recipes.

  12. I am printing out recipes as fast as I can here! word verification is "pokerat" - oh boy!

  13. Tried this pie for yesterday's Sunday dinner dessert. It was wonderful!!! I'm wondering about making blueberry pie with this recipe; what flavor of Jello would you use? Is there such a thing as blueberry Jello? TIA for any suggestions!

  14. I'm not sure if there is blueberry flavoured Jello. But I know there is grape...and I'm sure that would work just fine with blueberries. It's mostly about the colour!

  15. Thank you so much, Judy! Since I posted, my DH has brought home a 10# box of blueberries! Needless to say, blueberry pie (with grape jello :-) is on the menu here in the very near future! Thanks again for a wonderful recipe.
