The holidays will be here before you know it and today I am participating in a blog hop for all things Thanksgiving food! I’m sharing the recipe for this incredible Raspberry Pie, and yesterday I provided the tutorial for the lattice crust and braided edge, so you are all set to impress your guests with your dessert this year!
Don’t forget to check out the other amazing holiday recipes at the bottom of this post. Here’s a picture to tease you of what’s been included in this blog hop:
I’m a sucker for fruit pies, but if you don’t read my blog regularly, then you don’t know that I hate using fresh fruit for them. Fresh fruit is for snacking, not baking, but if it’s going to go bad, or you have frozen fruit, THAT’S when you make a pie!
I bought a huge bag of frozen raspberries at Sam’s Club for this pie. It’s a better deal than purchasing fresh fruit for your pie, and it all bakes up the same anyway.
Plus, raspberries are my absolute FAVORITE! When I first started blogging I actually posted about a frozen mixed berry pie. Same concept! Frozen fruit can be made into pie any time of year, no matter the season!
I think the bright red of the raspberries is just perfect for the holidays! This pie is sure to get gobbled up and you won’t believe how easy it is to prepare the filling. It’s the crust that takes time making, but homemade is way better than store bought! Enjoy!
- 1 recipe Perfect Pie Crust
- 6 cups fresh or frozen raspberries
- ½ cup sugar (add more if the berries are especially tart)
- 6 Tbsp cornstarch
- 1 egg, whisked, for brushing
- Extra sugar or sugar crystals, for sprinkling on top
- Prepare Perfect Pie Crust and divide dough in half. Roll out one half and fit it inside the pie dish, cutting off the excess crust.
- Gently toss the raspberries with the sugar and cornstarch in a bowl. Taste the berries and add more sugar and cornstarch if needed. (About 1 Tbsp of cornstarch for each 1 Tbsp of extra sugar.) Empty the raspberries into the pie crust shell.
- Roll out the other half of the pie crust and cut 1-inch strips. Weave the strips into a lattice crust. Wet edge of bottom crust and press lattice strips into the edge of the bottom crust firmly. Cut off excess crust. Check out my Lattice Tutorial for step-by-step photo instructions on how to make a lattice top. Optionally, use extra crust to braid an edge for the crust. Attach with a little water, and press firmly to the edge of the bottom crust. (The steps for the braid are also in this tutorial.)
- Lightly brush the crust with a whisked egg and sprinkle the top with sugar.
- Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 60 to 75 minutes or until the crust is golden and the filling is bubbling in the center; cover with foil if crust gets brown before filling bubbles. Allow pie to cool for the filling to gel.
