Very Raspberry Pie Recipe

Very Raspberry Pie Recipe

We live along a 130-year-old railroad track (our house once was a train station) and during a couple weeks every year, it is edged with wild raspberries. I use those raspberries for this incredibly delicious pie. —Kathy Jones, West Winfield, New York
