fresh raspberry pie

by jenna on September 16, 2011

Ummmm…..remember when I said I was on a baking kick?

Well that, coupled with the fact that plump juicy raspberries were on sale for $1.99 a carton at the store, left me with this:

Isn’t she pretty? I wanted to stick my face in it but instead I gave it to the neighbors. Well, actually…I gave it to Ashley who then gave it to her new neighbors. She let me borrow her favorite pink hoodie for the baseball game last week so I figured I owed her something…like a pie.

Think you can’t do lattice crust? Think again, young grasshopper. Think again.

Head to PBS Food for the recipe!

I have a ton of comfy hoodies which u would love…I’ll even ship them to you if that means getting a pie in return :-)

p.s.. I’m not fussy about flavor !


Molly @ RDexposed September 16, 2011 at 4:44 am

Raspberry pie takes me back to my childhood when my grandma would make her raspbery cream pie. To. Die. For.


Brittany @ Itty Bits of Balance September 16, 2011 at 4:46 am

I have a feeling that if I attempted this, it would NOT come out even half as aesthetically appealing.. haha


Savannah @ Sweet and Savvy September 16, 2011 at 4:47 am

how perfect is this??


Averie @ Love Veggies and Yoga September 16, 2011 at 5:01 am

You made an amazing looking pie…both the lattice crust (nice!) and the fresh raspberries…

And then…

You gave it away!!! <— that gets you into Heaven, I'm pretty sure :)


Lauren at Keep It Sweet September 16, 2011 at 5:01 am

That really is a gorgeous pie- don’t know that I could have given it away!


Ashton Keefe September 16, 2011 at 5:06 am

So great that you’re doing this on PBS, congrats looks like a great pie!


Caitlin @ Cake with Love September 16, 2011 at 5:09 am

I am such a big fan of raspberries, they always remind me of the time I used to pick them up with my grandparents in their garden, so fresh, so delicious!! Thi pi looks amazing!


Caitlin @ Cake with Love September 16, 2011 at 5:10 am

Sorry, I meant “this pie looks amazing”


Liz @ Tip Top Shape September 16, 2011 at 5:23 am

I’ve never made a pie before. This looks great!!


Gina @ Running to the Kitchen September 16, 2011 at 5:24 am

How did you not even taste a piece!? I don’t think I would’ve had that kind of self-restraint. Nope, definitely not.


VeggieGirl September 16, 2011 at 5:25 am

My oh my, what a pie.


Lauren @ What Lauren Likes September 16, 2011 at 5:32 am

How cute!! I need to learn how to do the lattice crust!


Jen September 16, 2011 at 5:40 am

This looks just like a home-made one from home. I wish I had neighbors that I could pawn off extras too!


Kiran @ September 16, 2011 at 5:47 am

That’s one beautiful looking pie :)

I’ve never baked a pie before but hoping to learn this fall. Keeping my fingers crossed!


Jacki September 16, 2011 at 5:52 am

Oh gosh, that looks delicious. And really pretty.
I have a goal for this month: bake a pie.
And the boyfriend just so happens to prefer raspberry pies over other kinds.
Win!! :)


Kristen @ Popcorn on the Stove September 16, 2011 at 5:59 am

This looks awesome! The recipe doesn’t look too complicated and pie would be perfect for this cooler weather we’ve gotten.


Leslie Means September 16, 2011 at 5:59 am

LOVE raspberries! And my husband loves them too! Why have I never made a pie with them?!?! I am totally baking this over the weekend as there is a fantastic raspberry farm not far from our home. My mom always used shortening in her crust too – love it! :)


Rose September 16, 2011 at 6:04 am

That is one beautiful pie.


Holly @ The Runny Egg September 16, 2011 at 6:12 am

That is a gorgeous pie! I’ve never attempted the lattice crust but I want to try it at some point!


Katrina September 16, 2011 at 6:22 am

This pie is all kinds of pretty. Love it!


katie @KatieDid September 16, 2011 at 6:36 am

um most gorgeous pie… ever. Seriously, that must have been hard to say goodbye to but I’m sure it was greatly appreciated.


Brooke @ BittersweetBrooke September 16, 2011 at 6:55 am

That pie is beautiful, truly a work of art. I commend anyone who can make a good pie. Good luck at your yoga conference Jenna, only good things can come from opening yourself to new expereinces!


Maria September 16, 2011 at 7:16 am

A slice of homemade pie with ice cream-you can’t beat that!


Rachel @ Not Rachael Ray September 16, 2011 at 7:17 am

So gorgeous! Looks delicious!


amy walters, aDESIGNdock September 16, 2011 at 7:24 am

Oh this looks absolutely perfect! I’ll have a slice right now, if you’re given em’ out :)


Sarah @ See Sarah Eat September 16, 2011 at 7:28 am

That pie looks AWESOME! I am in awe of your skills. I’m hoping to attempt some more baking this fall and winter :)


Cat @Breakfast to Bed September 16, 2011 at 7:35 am

I love that you did an actual lattice top. I HATE the faux lattice. This looks just beautiful.


Lindsa @ Schnoodle Soup September 16, 2011 at 7:38 am

My grandmother’s “famous” (to us!) crust is basically this same recipe. She adds a smidge of white vinegar to her water first though – ever tried that? I wonder if it actually makes a’s only a tsp.


Kristen @ Chocolate Covered Kristen September 16, 2011 at 8:01 am

Love making lattice crusts! They are so simple and everyone is always so impressed by them.


Sally Anne @ PaleoRunnerGirl September 16, 2011 at 8:28 am

Now THAT is a beautiful pie! I have never baked with raspberries. The seedy taste perplexes me. Haha! We just got our first glimpse of fall weather and all I can reach for is APPLES! Bring on the apple pie!


Deva @ Deva by Definition September 16, 2011 at 8:31 am

That is one epically delicious looking pie. I have a TON of hoodies and pullovers that I love. Yesterday it was a Five Bamboo, today it is UnderArmour, tomorrow – probably an Ohio State one or one from my college. I LOVE. hoodies.


Liz September 16, 2011 at 8:39 am

That pie looks delicious – especially since raspberries (and nectarines) are my fav fruit! The lattice is beautiful & I’m thinking (since I’m also on a baking kick) that I need to attempt that very, very soon :)


Alexia (Dimple Snatcher) September 16, 2011 at 8:41 am

You didn’t eat any?!


Lauren @ Oatmeal after Spinning September 16, 2011 at 8:52 am

Not to take the spotlight off of the pie- but Alden’s Vanilla Ice Cream is AMAZING!! I’ve only ever had that flavor (I am totally a vanilla girl through and through)- but I’m sure the other flavors are great, too.
I’m definitely impressed by your ice cream taste! (No pun intended!)


Jonathan | World of Diets September 16, 2011 at 8:58 am

A pie for a hoodie… seems like Ashley made a good deal. I love the quality of your pictures.


Jenny September 16, 2011 at 8:59 am

seriously – how do you have time to bake all this stuff!!! That looks so amazing. I’ve always said – I will have pie at my wedding 😉 I could shove this in the husbands face too right??


Laurie @SimplyScratch September 16, 2011 at 9:20 am

Wowza Jenna! Looks perfect!


Cait's Plate September 16, 2011 at 9:20 am

Oh my. I like legitimately want to print out these photos and frame them and hang them up in my place. Would that be weird?? Haha. LOVE.


mary @ what's cookin with mary September 16, 2011 at 9:38 am

So. Pretty.

I’ve never made a pie, but I hear it’s pretty easy. I love the lattice topper on yours. I think that pie would make the girls from little house smile. 😉


Bev Weidner September 16, 2011 at 9:42 am



Moni'sMeals September 16, 2011 at 10:29 am

Lara @ TresLaLa September 16, 2011 at 11:10 am

Oh, man. This looks fantastic! I LOVE raspberries. It makes me so sad that I won’t get them for a while. Time to catch up with my raspberry eating…


gia September 16, 2011 at 11:13 am

Adrianna from A Cozy Kitchen September 16, 2011 at 12:38 pm

That’s one pretty pie! Good gracious.


Kath September 16, 2011 at 1:00 pm

Only you would call pie making a “fast” process. I wish I could bake!


Krystina (Organically Me) September 16, 2011 at 1:25 pm

What a beautiful pie!


Sarah September 16, 2011 at 1:46 pm

Okay, I don’t even like raspberries but for this gorgeous pie I think I’d forget that pesky little detail!


jenna September 16, 2011 at 2:27 pm

Mellie September 16, 2011 at 3:06 pm

Mmm! Raspberries are the best!


Marty September 16, 2011 at 3:11 pm

The bright bold red looks amazing peeking through the lattice top of the pie! Beautiful photos.
