Raspberry Pie I
(from rosie’s recipe box)
I used 4 tabelspoons of water (instead of 6) because my berries were still wet from washing. I also added an additional tablespoon of tapioca. As far as tartness, that I’ve seen people mentione…again, it’s the ripeness of the berries and it’s hard to tell if you’re buying them in the store and can’t taste them. So try a berry before making the pie at home. If it’s too tart for your liking, add more sugar than the recipe requires. I added an additional 1/4 cup (total 1-1/2 cups).
- 1 quart fresh raspberries (4 cups)
- 1 1/4 cups white sugar
- 8 teaspoons cornstarch
- 2 tablespoons quick-cooking tapioca
- 6 tablespoons water
- 4 tablespoons butter
- 1 recipe pastry for a 9 inch double crust pie
Mix together raspberries, sugar, cornstarch, minute tapioca and water. Mix and let sit while you make your pie crust. (See double crust recipes on this site if you do not have a recipe).
Put berries in bottom crust, and put 4 – 1 tablespoon pats of butter on top. Put on top crust and crimp edges. Make slits in the crust to allow the steam to escape.
Bake at 425 degrees F (220 degrees C) for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) and bake for 45 minutes.
