Raspberries have always been my most anticipated fruit of the summer. Wild raspberries are even better but finding enough of them to make a pie is tricky. My three kids and I headed down to the beach a few weeks ago and found a nice little patch of wild raspberries that we quickly picked cleaned. They were so sweet and bursting with flavor that I’m sure they would have made a mean Raspberry Pie. Nevertheless, Ontario raspberries are just as delicious and we used them in this pie that turned out perfect.
Earlier this week as I was tucking my two boys into bed I asked them what three things they could do this summer that would make it perfect for them. Joshua went first and his three things were 1) make a homemade blueberry pie with Mom, 2) go back up to Nanny’s and Papa’s cottage and, 3) go to Splash Canyon Resort for the day. Isaac, my oldest, said 1) to have his best friend, Evan, over for the day, 2) go back up to Nanny and Papa’s cottage, and 3) make a homemade raspberry pie with Mom. When they both finished I was thinking, Is that all? Wow, that seems pretty simple, we can do that! I was anticipating things that involved lots of money or trips that were crazy-ridiculous. So, to get started with the lists, Isaac and I set out to make a delicious Raspberry Pie! The picture below is the finished pie before it went in the oven.
