Reviews for Fresh Raspberry Pie
"I used a sweet pastry crust which is very easy, made in a mixer and a change from cracker crust. It contains egg, flour, sugar, butter. Google a recipe and just follow instructions. I have used both fresh and frozen raspberries and both turn out the same. I also used a large raspberry jello packet added to the sugar, water and cornflour mixture which gives it that beautiful deep red color and adds to flavor. I added the berries when this mixture had cooled a little., I then added the raspberry mixture to the crust and refrigerate. Everyone loves this and it is delicious. I also glazed the crust before adding raspberry mixture with beaten egg white to stop pastry going soft. This can be done as soon as the crust is out of the oven. It works great. This is one of those pies where you cannot stop at one slice. Great to serve with a big dollop of whipped cream. ( I doubled all ingredients except for raspberries) to make more of the sauce mixture."
"Not enough sauce to cover the berries. You need to double this. Other than having to run out to the store for more gelatin, this was a very easy recipe."
"Awesome recipe. Due to using 4 cups of berries, I had to double the amount of water, sugar, cornstarch, and raspberry gelatin because what the recipe calls for is not enough to cover the berries. I also added 1 cup of black berries."
"I tried this recipe for the first time on 7/8/14. I did make some adjustments to the recipe by making my own graham cracker crust: 1-1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs, 1/4 cup cinnamon-sugar and 1/4 cup melted butter OR margarine. I combined the crumbs, sugar-cinnamon mixture and melted butter together and pressed onto bottom and up sides of a 9" pie plate. I didn't have raspberry gelatin, so I used a package of Jello "Fruit Punch" flavor gelatin. I did place the crust into the oven on a baking sheet, the oven turned off after preheating to 400o F. I had the crust set for 15 minutes, then removed from oven. I think that the glaze for the berries is something for me to work with-perhaps I just might use about 1-1/4 to 1-1/2 cups water, but keep sugar and cornstarch as it is! OR: Instead of placing berries IN crust, I just might combine the berries WITH the gelatin glaze after cooling the 15 allotted minutes time! I admit that I'd had to make the glaze twice to really achieve a full crust of glazed raspberry filling! I won't make the glaze twice the next time as it seeped out of the crust and dripped on the baking sheet! However, I WAS able to work on the graham cracker crust. If I make this pie again and I probably WILL, I'm going to see how I can improve MY preparation of this pie filling! I think it does have a lovely color and as the pie sets, the berry filling does have to me, a jewel-like appearance! Thank you, Patricia Staudt, for sharing your recipe with Taste of Home! I'm planning to share this pie with my depts. at the local hospital where I volunteer! In fact, the departments are glad to be guinea pigs for the various Taste of Home treats which I bring in! delowenstein"
"Even though I didn't exactly try any of the pie, my grandfather and his friend loved it. I thought I would make it for his friend since she just got out of the hospital, and when they tried it,they said it was delectable. The only ingredients I changed were adding in a no-calorie sweetener instead of sugar, and sugar free raspberry gelatin, along with adding in blueberries and blackberries with the raspberries! It was sugar free due to the fact that my grandpa was diabetic."
"This was wonderful! I'm going to try it with fresh peaches. I wonder how it would turn out with frozen berries."
"Made the pie with a graham cracker crust. Don't know that I really cared for this as a pie and not a graham cracker crust. I can see this, though, as the "jello-fruit" layer of pretzel salad. I will probably use it that way in the future."
"Tasted just like freshly picked raspberries... yum!! Quick, easy and attractive. Wasn't sure up front if I would like the graham crust, but it really was good."
"Made for last night's dessert - my family loved it. So easy and pretty! Will definitely be a keeper in my cookbook."
"this is awesome. I wasn't sure about the graham cracker crust but is was so good. The graham crust helps it not to get soggy as it would in a regular curst. I also melted a small amout of red raspberry jam (seedless) and brushed that on top of the berries."
"I have used frozen but if they have sugar added, I thaw the berries and drain most of the syrup off. I usually have some that I have frozen myself that don't have added sugar so they are fine. It works just as well with the frozen but the berries are softer."
"to janicegaw...My mom also has a corn allergy, and we use ARROWROOT STARCH in place of cornstarch in recipes. It gives you that great, clear sauce you need for this and other recipes, unlike flour. There is no taste difference, and its all natural. We buy it at Penzeys Spices (Penzeys.com), but you can find it at health food stores too. We highly recommend it!"
"Has anyone used frozen raspberries does it matter?"
"The same recipe, changing the fruit and gelatin to strawberry, makes an awesome strawberry pie similiar to the big boy kind. Enjoy. Family favorite....."
"I made this pie using fresh local raspberries. Me and my family spent the day picking berries and this was the first recipe I made. It was delicious. It is a perfect way to preserve the fresh berry taste. I topped my pie with a little melted chocolate and a dusting of powdered sugar."
"This has been a favorite of my family for years. It's great served with whipped cream! I use flour instead of cornstarch because my husband is allergic to corn. Perfect every time"
"I love this recipe! I have made it several times now and everybody has loved it. Since raspberries arent always cheap I have started making it by substituting the jello and fruit with strawberries!!! This makes it even more delicious."
"Delicious fresh taste and color. Super-easy and summery. My kids love it."
"LOVE LOVE LOVE this recipe I have made it often during the late spring when raspberries are suddenly cheap again. When my parents are here I make it about 3 times they never get enough of it. As for the berries collapsing. READ the instructions. Let the sauce COOL before pouring over berries. I have no problems with this ever."
"This was so easy! I used a graham cracker crust instead. The berries were broken down by the hot geletin mixture, but still plump and tasty!"
