How do you Make Raspberry Pie from Scratch?
To make this recipe for raspberry pie, you’ll start by preparing the pie crusts using our pie crust recipe. Then you’ll preheat the oven to 425F. While that warms up, combine the raspberries, tapioca, sugar, lemon juice, cinnamon, and salt, then pour this into the pie crust and dot with the butter. Cover it up with the second pie curst and seal it up. Brush the top with the half and half, cut vents into it, then sprinkle coarse sugar on top if you like for a little extra yumminess. Bake for 15 minutes, then reduce heat to 375F, baking for about 20 minutes more until the top is golden and the filling bubbles. Let it cool completely before serving.
Expert Tips and Tricks for the Perfect Raspberry Pie Every Time
- Don’t skip the half and half. This gives it a bit of a glossy top which looks amazing.
- Make sure you vent. That top pie crust needs a few vents cut in to help the filling cook just right.
- Protect your crust. Raspberry pie doesn’t need to bake as long as some of our other pies. Still, because every oven is different, if you look in on it and it’s getting too dark on top, use a pie shield or foil to protect it.
- Frozen is ok too. If you’re trying to make a raspberry pie out of season, it may be hard to find fresh raspberries. You can use frozen ones if you thaw them completely and then fully drain them first.
