Raspberries Bustin' Out All Over!
The less than good weather this summer hasn't bothered the fall raspberries one little bit! The bushes are all full of plump, delicious berries begging to be picked and made into something wonderful.
A few years ago, my bosom buddy Judy was down from Vermont during raspberry time & shared a Vermont specialty: Raspberry Pie. Never thought of making a pie out of raspberries, but one bite and I was hooked! ( And its EASY!)
So, for the uninitiated, here's Judy's Mom's recipe for Vermont Raspberry Pie.
6 cups of Raspberries
1 cup sugar
3 Tbsp cornstarch or flour
1/4 cup tapioca
Mix together gently and place in your favorite pie crust
Bake @ 400 degrees for 45 minutes or until bubbly.
That's it! A scoop of vanilla ice cream only adds to it, but this wonderful berry pie is a treat for the taste buds no matter how you eat it!
