My hubby's favorite type of pie is Raspberry......For many years, I would buy it if I came across it - but I never attempted making it as I thought it would be too complicated.
One day last year, I had a bunch of raspberries to go through (it had been a great sale, and the kids were on a berry kick) so I decided to just check out a recipe. I was surprised at how easy it seemed to be, so I looked at a few more and decided to go for it!
This is a recipe I came up with after looking at many - you can add more sugar if you want a sweeter pie
What you will need
4.5 cups of fresh/frozen raspberries
1 cup of white sugar
4 tbsp of corn starch
1 frozen pie crust (or fresh, if you make your own)
whipped cream for topping
On the stove, over medium heat, combine the berries, sugar and cornstarch. Cook, while stirring frequently, for approx 15 minutes (mixture should be bubbling and thick)
Remove from heat, transfer mixture to a container and place in the fridge to cool and set, approx 60 minutes.
Once mixture is set, pour into a pie crust
Bake at 325 for approx 30 - 40 minutes (crust should be a golden brown)
Let sit for 5 minutes, then slice and plate - top with a spoonful of whipped topping (we like cool whip) and serve!
