Raspberry Cream Pie

raspberry cream pie

 

Raspberries have finally ripened this week, so I picked up a flat at a u-pick farm to make a couple of pies.  I adore raspberries. I think I could eat a pint of raspberries every day for the rest of my life and feel complete. Okay – slight exaggeration. But, I don’t feel that way about all of the other berries.  I love them all, but I don’t adore them. Raspberries are special. Anyways, the pies were a hit. I made this raspberry cream pie and  plain double crust raspberry pie and the votes were split between the two. I couldn’t pick a winner either -see if you can.

  • 1 prebaked pie shell
  • 2/3 cup/ 1 cup sugar

  3. Add butter and vanilla.
  4. Pour into pie shell and cool.
