Reviews forContest-Winning Raspberry Cream Pie
"I made this today to take to a July 4th cookout, and it was a big hit. I easily doubled the recipe. It was very flavorful and not too heavy."
"This absolutely one my family's favorite recipes. I can see why it won a contest!"
"I made this for Thanksgiving and it is so, very good! My daughter has requested it once a month. I'll make it each holiday."
"OH MY, i also reduced the sugar and found it was great. I reduced sugar by 1/4 cup"
"This was okay, but we found it way too sweet, especially the topping. If I make it again I'd make half of the topping as there is way too much and also reduce the sugar content significantly."
"This was a big hit. I left out the orange liqueur. I baked the crust for about 15 minutes at 350, so it wouldn't crumble. Also made one without crust for a gluten-free version and that was great as well."
"my sister made this for our family get together and we all loved it."
"I used to make this years ago and lost the recipe. I'm so glad to see it posted here. It's one of my all time favorites and will be our dessert tomorrow night."
"This dessert was gone before our church fellowship meal began; folks were still looking for a slice. A great, tasty hit!"
