- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 3/4 cup shortening
- 1 egg, lightly beaten
- 3 tablespoons cold water
- 1 tablespoon white vinegar
- 1-1/3 cups sugar
- 2 tablespoons quick-cooking tapioca
- 2 tablespoons cornstarch
- 5 cups fresh or frozen unsweetened raspberries, thawed
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 1 tablespoon 2% milk
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar and salt; cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Combine the egg, water and vinegar; stir into flour mixture just until moistened. Divide dough in half so that one ball is slightly larger than the other; wrap each in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 30 minutes or until easy to handle.
- Meanwhile, in another large bowl, combine the sugar, tapioca, cornstarch and raspberries; let stand for 15 minutes.
- On a lightly floured surface, roll out larger ball of dough to fit a 9-in. pie plate. Transfer dough to pie plate; trim even with edge. Add raspberry filling; dot with butter.
- Roll out remaining dough to fit top of pie; place over filling. Trim, seal and flute edges. Cut slits in top. Brush with milk; sprinkle with sugar.
- Bake at 350° for 50-55 minutes or until crust is golden brown and filling is bubbly. Cool on a wire rack. Yield: 6-8 servings.
Reviews forFavorite Fresh Raspberry Pie
"Fabulous pie. I made it with fresh raspberries. Followed exact recipe and even the crust was great. Definately keeping this recipe."
"It looked like a beautiful pie, mine turned out perfect and tasted wonderful, BUT it was runny, and I had to turn the oven higher and for an additional half hour, don't save it the next day for it will be rotten tasting, I had to throw it out, must have been the tapioca that rotted, it needed 2 table spoon of flour to thicken it, I should have tried a smaller pie first now I have no more berries, looks like next year maybe."
"wow..wonderrful recipe!! used my own raspberries from my garden, that I froze last year..came out PERFECT!! Lots of compliments!! I did use my own tried and true crust recipe...I own a bakery and am very careful with my recipes...this goes in bakery recipe box!!!"
"Used my own crust and added a tsp cinnamon and a tsp vanilla. Delicious pie. Question : is the nutrition data for 6 pieces or 8 pieces?"
"Absolutely wonderful recipe. I tripled the crust and doubled the filling and made it into a cobbler. The whole family loved it!!"
"I made this pie over the summer for my family. They loved it, so all the other fruit pies I've made since then have used this recipe.About the crust: sometimes I brushed it with milk and put sugar on and sometimes I didn't. Either way is good.One piece of advice: Let the pie cool. If you let it cool completely (2 hours or so) the filling sets really nicely and then it's a breeze to cut. However, this is hard to accomplish at my house."
"I am quite surprised by the number of five-star reviews here. After picking two pints of fresh raspberries I was so excited to make this pie. The filling turned out great, but the crust was a mess. It was the worst crust I have EVER tasted. Raspberry pie is my favorite thing in the world, and I ended up eating one piece and throwing the rest away. It was mealy, soft, and tasted like shortening only. This was not user error, either. Do not recommend this crust!"
"Very good. I didn't let it cool long enough so at first it was a little runny and it could have used more sugar for my taste but both of those are on me. The recipe itself is great just the way it is."
"Loved this berry pie! We all enjoyed it! Great crust!"
"This is the best fruit pie recipe I have ever tasted. I've substituted strawberries, blueberries, sour cherries for the raspberries and they are just as good as the raspberry pies. The filling is not overly sweet."
