A reader asked me for my fresh raspberry pie recipe. Here it is! It’s a family favorite. We use local fresh-picked raspberries when possible, but luckily raspberries are available any time of year.
Fresh Raspberry Pie
Bake a one-crust pie shell using recipe of your choice.
Wash and let dry 1 qt. of fresh raspberries.
Simmer together 2/3 cup water and 1 cup of the berries for about 3 minutes.
Blend 1 c. sugar and 3 Tbsp. cornstarch with 1/3 cup of water and add to the boiling berries and water. Stirring constantly, boil for one minute and then let cool. (I’ve used a bit less sugar with good success.)
Spread cooled pie shell with softened cream cheese (about 1/2 cup) and add the fresh uncooked berries (about 3 cups).
Pour cooked mixture onto berries.
Refrigerate pie for about 2 hours, until firm. Serve with whipped cream (we use unsweetened cream with a touch of vanilla) or vanilla ice cream.
