Raspberry Pie

I chose to make an all raspberry pie because no one ever makes them, they always get mixed with other berries or fruit. This is a decadent, fragrant, and delicious pie!

Cover with top crust, if using full crust be sure to cut vents in top, or weave up a lattice crust.

Cool for an hour or two before serving if possible.

Berry Apocalypse pie

This is an Amy invented pie based on the amount of berries in the fridge. The only bad thing about the nine days of pie, is that it is after berry season, so you don’t get the very best berries, of course it is cranberry season, and since we live by the bogs, those are at their peak.
