Recipe: Fresh Raspberry Pie

Meg Bywater Agnes Goldrich Clara Goldrich picking raspberries
Another late summer fruit pie inspired by our fruit picking trip and the popularity of pie dessert buffets for weddings: Raspberry Pie. This recipe comes from canida at Instructables.com.

Ingredients for Fresh Raspberry Pie

  • 5-6 cups fresh berries
  • 1 pie crust (homemade or store-bought) [parve pie crust recipe]
  • 1/4-1/2 cup sugar (for tart berries, use the larger amount)
  • 2 Tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 cup water
  • Pinch salt
  • 1 Tablespoon lemon juice
  • Dash allspice (optional)

Instructions for Raspberry Pie

Visit Instructables.com for canida’s photos of the steps.

  1. Sort and gently wash berries. Set them aside to dry on a towel or in a colander.
  2. Meanwhile, make or buy your pie crust, then bake it. Use the package directions for baking a store-bought pie crust, or just bake at 350 until lightly golden-brown, 10-15 minutes depending on the recipe you’ve chosen. Homemade pie crusts may require weights to toast evenly without slipping down the sides (line with foil and add dry beans for weight if you don’t have pie-specific tools), but this isn’t absolutely necessary if aesthetics aren’t your thing.
  3. When pie crust is cool, fill with raspberries (reserve 1/4 cup berries for the glaze). Spread evenly, and mound them a bit in the center as shown below.
  4. Place in a small pot the reserved 1/4 cup raspberries, water, sugar, cornstarch, and salt.
  5. Cook and stir with a wire whisk over low heat until the sugar has dissolved and the berries have turned to mush. When sauce begins to thicken, add lemon juice and allspice (if using). Stir until glaze becomes thick, and remove from heat.
  6. Pour the glaze over your berries, spreading gently to cover the entire top surface. Allow the pie to set up for at least 30 minutes in a cool room or in the refrigerator.
  7. Serve chilled or at room temperature.

Make-Ahead Options

Raspberry pie can be stored covered in the refrigerator for two days.

Wedding Inspiration: Rustic Backyard Summer Wedding

The look of this backyard wedding was inspired by the soft colors and rustic country feel of peaches, tangerines and plums, with touches of feathers, wood accents and flower pods. And instead of a wedding cake: a selection of home-made pies.

Autumn Wedding in the Country – With Touches of Red

If your home is a 300-year-old barn, your backyard wedding will naturally take on something of a country theme. Jan and Rob played the opportunity for maximum impact, with the prominent use of reds in the color scheme and reception decor that evokes a country store. Even if your home isn’t a 300-year-old barn, the details of Jan and Rob’s celebration will serve as great inspiration for your autumn wedding.
