fresh raspberry pie

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!

    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 🙂

    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.

    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! 🙂

    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 difference..it’s only a tsp.

    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 🙂

    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!)
