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!

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

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

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 :)

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

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

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!! :)

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

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! :)

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 difference..it’s only a tsp.

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 :)

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!)
