"Yum! Fresh berries were too expensive in the middle of winter, so I used 2 bags of frozen instead. Came out perfectly!"

"Recipe was perfect. Turned out great! To the reviewer who's pie was "soupy", maybe your tapioca was old or you didn't let it set long enough. Tapioca takes longer to set up than flour does."

"I just made this pie to take to a dinner. Fresh berries were expensive. I baked 20 mins longer than recipe required and it is still soupy in the middle. The quantity of tapioca is not enough to thicken six cups of fresh juicy berries. I have always used flour but wanted to try something new. Big mistake!"

"This was the best Red Raspberry Pied I have ever had. I had even substituted half the sugar with Splenda Granular. I just made this pie last week and I am making it again while the berries are fresh!"
