Fresh Raspberry Pie

Good day, my friends, 
and Happy Summer!

Summer afternoon - summer afternoon; 
to me those have always been the two most beautiful words 
in the English language. 
- Henry James -

I hope your summer is off to a beautiful start 
and I also hope you are staying nice and cool.
We will be enjoying temperatures in the mid-90's this week,
but I know several of you are enjoying even hotter temps.

The 4th of July is just around the corner
so I thought I would share this fresh raspberry pie recipe
since it's a delicious pie to take to a picnic.
And the red makes it nice and patriotic.

Ingredients Needed:

enough pastry for two pie crusts
{if you're looking for an excellent crust recipe click here;
my mom shared my grandma Betty's recipe and it's amazing}
4 cups of fresh raspberries
1 cup sugar
3 1/2 tablespoons tapioca
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 tablespoon lemon juice
4 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons cream

Roll out half of the pie crust
and place it in a pie plate.
Gently press down so that there aren't any air pockets.

Blitz the tapioca in the blender to grind it until it's fine and flour-like.

Mix together the raspberries, sugar, tapioca,
cinnamon, and lemon juice.

Pour the raspberry mixture into the pie shell
and dot with butter.

Roll out the remaining pie crust and lay it on top of the raspberry mixture.
Trim off any excess crust 
and use your fingers to create a pretty scallop design on the edges.

Brush the cream onto the top of the pie
and sprinkle with some sugar and cinnamon.
Cut 3 - 4 slits in the top of the pie.

Set the pie on a baking sheet in case the juices run over.

Preheat oven to 425F.
Bake for 15 minutes.
Lower the temperature to 375F and bake for another 25 - 35 minutes.
Cool on a wire rack before serving.

You can find the original recipe by clicking here.

The perfect treat to enjoy while sitting on your back patio one summer evening.
Serve this pie with ice cream or whipped cream
for extra sweetness.

It was June, and the world smelled of roses. 
The sunshine was like powdered gold 
over the grassy hillside. 
- Maud Hart Lovelace, Betsy-Tacy and Tib, 1941 -

Have a splendid week, sweet friends.

Dearest, dearest Stephanie... Ah, it has been too long since I last stopped by for a little visit with you! I so enjoyed catching up with you this afternoon whilst sipping some hot ginger coffee!

I used to make this all the time when we lived in Boston. Nothing says summer afternoon like fresh fruit, in any way! HELLO, STEPHANIE! Enjoy your summer afternoon! Did you see the moon this morning? An incredible full "Strawberry moon" that took my breath away as I praised GOD for the light!

Sara - My Woodland Garden said...

What a lovely recipe, dear Stephanie, and beautiful photos, as always!
In our family, we all have our favourite berries and favourite pies, but raspberries are loved by everyone.
The Henry James quotation is interesting... even though I would choose "summer morning". The light is so incredibly beautiful, the air is crisp and the mind is more perceptive. :)
Wishing you and your family wonderful summer days! Hugs!

JES said...

Your pie looks scrumptious! And so summer-y! And your photos are a treat in themselves! Nice to see your sweet tooth in action again! :)

KimM said...

This looks so good? DH just came in with a boatload of wild raspberries - this recipe may be in our future!

Miss Val's Creations said...

Yummy! This looks delicious! We recently discovered that a huge bush on our property is a blackberry one. I am hoping for lots of berries to do things with if the birds don't beat us to it! It is hot in MA too right now. Summer is definitely here!

Simply Linda said...

Lady Linda said...

Yummy yummy yummy! Oh my goodness, this looks so good. I love anything raspberry. Happy summer to you sweet friend.

Mariette VandenMunckhof-Vedder said...

Dearest Stephanie,
One of Summer's dreams for sure! LOVE raspberries and when they are available fresh that is such a blessing.
Reading American dessert recipes I'm still amazed (after 33 years being here!) at the enormous amounts of sugar used...
Guess that's why I love to use my European recipes as they are so different.
Love the Tapioca being used in this one.
Sending you hugs and blessings,

hobbyloes said...

Your pie looks amazing delicious and so moist, with the beautiful red of the raspberries.
Love the doiley with the pink roses!
Here in Holland the weather is rainy and cold, we hope it will be soon better.
Have a nice week.

Billie Jo said...

Stephanie, As I clicked on your post, I said to my Peyton as I ate my cereal, "These raspberries are delicious!"
Now...I shall bake them in a pie!
Thank you for always sharing your delights!
Hugs, my friend. : )

Dear sweet Stephanie, What a delightful summertime post! We are enjoying fresh berries from the market, so thank you for this unique and tasty sounding recipe. Your photography, as always, is gorgeous. Hard to believe July 4th is just around the corner; time is flying. God bless your afternoon. p.s. I love the Betsy-Tacy books!

Debbie said...

Looks and sounds very yummy!!!! I like red deserts for the 4th, this sounds perfect!!!

Christine said...

O my Stephanie, this is just a delight for any occasion in summer1 I wouldn't need an excuse for a slice with whipped cream!
Thanks so much for sharing this recipe !
Have a wonderful week!

Prunella Pepperpot said...

Ooh Stephanie, your pie looks mouth wateringly delicious. Great photos that would be at home in any recipe book. What a lucky family you have. I'm sure it didn't last long.
Have a wonderful Summer

God's Grace Overflows said...

Oh my Stephanie... This pie looks so yummy! Raspberries are cheap right now, so I best get back to the store for some more. This is a must make...like yesterday! Ha!

It's gonna be another hot one here today, 103! Talk about stay in the house and eat popsicles kind of a day! :)

Thinking of you...

Sylvia said...

That pie does look so good, Stephanie.I would have to use Strawberries instead though, I'm not very fond of Raspberries.
Hope you and your family are enjoying summertime and doing well.

Ida said...

Oh my that looks yummy. I just got through making some no bake raspberry lemonade bars & now I have a new recipe to try out.

Sandy said...

This looks so delicious! Do you always eat it wearing those gorgeous pearls!!!

Beatrice Euphemie said...

Hello, Dear Stephanie - Happy Summer to you! Ooooooh, your pie looks delicious and especially pretty on your lovely table. My daughter loves raspberries and this would make the perfect treat for her when she visits. Thank you for sharing the recipe and your Grandmother's pie crust! Hope you stay cool :) Hugs xo Karen

Melanie said...

Your pie looks just wonderful! I hope you are having a great summer so far.

Celestina Marie said...

Hi Stephanie, oh this pie looks so delicious and perfect for summer. Pie just seems to be a summer dessert and I think of cake for winter.
Thanks for sharing the recipe and I always enjoy your wonderful photos.
Happy Summer dear one! xo


I am coming over right NOW and hope you will serve me a big slice of that raspberry pie that looks divine!!!

Alex said...

Pies are something I'm not good at! ...but this looks soooo good I would try this recipe and hope to have success!
It looks amazing, and is so summery. Aren't raspberries just like beautiful little jewels?
Very many hugs and good wishes, Stephanie.

Lauren @ My Wonderfully Made said...

My mouth is watering AND that is one of my favorite quotes of all time! I have it several places around the house lol.

Judith @ Lavender Cottage said...

My heavens, it's berry pie time in blogland. I wish we could get together and have a piece of my strawberry, and your raspberry pie! Then we could go for a long walk and have a nice chat. :-)
We have an amazing store in Ontario (don't know about the other provinces) called Bulk Barn where all your baking supplies are in bins and you put what you want to purchase in plastic bags that are weighed at the cash. They have a large gluten free aisle now with a bin of tapioca flour which I have picked up as a thickening agent for pies. Is this product not available in the grocery or specialty stores where you live Stephanie?
I read your mother's pastry recipe and for years I used Crisco but switched to butter. Her pink silicone rolling pin sure looks interesting as I switched from a wood rolling pin I received at a wedding shower to marble.
I'm going to pin your recipe to try when the raspberries are in.

kitty@ Kitty's Kozy Kitchen said...

It's not surprising that we both have raspberries on our minds, is it, my friend? I believe we both are smitten with those special berries. I will have to make your pie as it looks oh so wonderful!! I keep meaning to try your Mom's (grandma Betty's) pie crust recipe and then I'll make this pie. I made a blueberry and a buttermilk pie over the weekend. I guess summer=pie season...well, actually, any time for me! Thanks for sharing the recipe. Love and hugs!

donna said...

Oh my it looks and sounds wonderful. Thank you sew much for sharing your grandma's recipe.

AnnMarie aka Vintage Junkie aka NaNa said...

This post made me realize that I have never made raspberry pie! I pick them fresh every year and make jam, so when they are in season here I will have to try this pie too. Thanks for the recipe!

Lorrie said...

We are enjoying lots of fresh raspberries from our garden these days. I've never made a raspberry pie, and I'm pretty sure that my husband would love one. Thanks for sharing.

Deborah Montgomery said...

Sunshine like powdered gold over the grassy hillside . . . love that! And I do believe raspberries are my favorite berry. Now's the time to enjoy them, for sure, as they're so expensive the rest of the year. This sounds like a great recipe for July 4, if I can keep us from eating them before they go into the pie! Pretty pictures, too, Stephanie. xo Deborah

Debbie Harris said...

Your pie looks gorgeous and delicious, Stephanie. I bet it was real tasty and enjoyed by all.
I was able to get raspberries on sale so I will be making the jam this week with you know who? :-)
Great photos as always.
Love you~~

Elizabeth said...

A very happy Tuesday to you, Stephanie! What a lovely dessert, my friend! I love raspberries and this looks like a perfect treat for summer {{smiles}} I may have to give it a try :) When your mom posted her pie crust recipe, I made sure to copy it down with the intention of using it the next time I baked a pie. It seems like such a great recipe and I so appreciated the many tips and tricks that she gave as well. You see, I have a love/hate relationship with pastry...it doesn't usually turn out for me. So, I am looking forward to giving her recipe (and yours!) a try.

I also just have to say that your photos are simply stunning, Stephanie! I love how the color of the pie just pops!

Wishing you a lovely end of June and a beautiful week! Much love!

Mehrll said...

What beautiful photos of the raspberry pie. They almost look real enough to eat. Shame I do not like raspberries since they look so pretty. Hope you have a wonderful summer. Hugs.

Hope said...

Oh my, dearest Stephanie, this does look delicious! Your photos are beautiful, and I LOVE the roses and pie in the last one.

It is so exciting that summer is just beginning. Tonight is a full moon, and I just might go out around midnight for a moonlight swim in the pool. My sister told me today that that is one of her favorite summertime things to do. I cannot believe that I never thought of it myself!

I hope you and your family have a joyous week.

Alexis @ Chemistry Cachet said...

This looks heavenly!!! Raspberries are amazing when they are baked :)

Sarah said...

Your pie looks delicious! We planted black and red raspberry bushes last year. We had our first red raspberries this week! : )

Tamago said...

Oh my, your raspberry pie looks really fresh and yummy! And I agree, red makes very patriotic, too - perfect for the coming holiday!
I love your table setting, with beautiful table cloth and roses. Looks so dreamy :-)

Wanda said...

Looks and sounds wonderfully delicious. The touch of pearls and lace are so you.

I made a Black Berry Cobbler for two, yesterday. It's gone. HaHa. But not before a picture.

Margie said...

YUM! Your raspberry pie is the quintessential American pie!

Lynn Bean said...

It looks very yummy! I am sure your family devoured it! Have a great week my friend!

Big Rigs 'n Lil' Cookies said...

Thank you so much for sharing this! I have never made a Fresh Raspberry Pie, and I can hardly believe that! As soon as we have some fresh raspberries (which I hope is soon) I will have to make this.
Heading over to check out your mom's pie crust recipe. I need lots of help with pie crust!

Conniecrafter said...

Beautiful pictures to show off that yummy looking pie, hope you too are enjoying a wonderful summer so far, we have had temps in the high 90's with heat index in the 100's, I will have to say that is just too hot for me, just can't take those temps anymore, your pie sure looks nice and refreshing :)
Have a terrific weekend!

Wandering Wren said...

What a wonderful looking recipe and celebration of this time of year, I am taking one big warm breath of summer as I am just about to head back to an Aussie winter! My daughter has a star player in the soccer team (Not Miss Canada!) who loves raspberries and once told me she couldn't afford them as a student. So when she kicked an amazing goal, or even the opposite, and needed cheering up I would buy her a punnet of raspberries! Such is the power of this wonderful fruit!
Thank you for your beautiful post.
Have a happy week
Wren x

Mimi said...

Dearest Stephanie, what a mouthwatering treat this is! We adore raspberries, but alas they are an expensive treat here. We buy them anyway, and portion them carefully, savouring them well. The most amazing raspberries I ever ate were picked fresh from a vendors garden in the South of France and sold in wee punnets fresh at a village market. Every time I eat them, I'm reminded of that experience. They are such a delicacy! Thankyou for all of your sweet comments on my blog recently. Much Love, Mimi xxx
