Recipe by songofbernadette

I lost my aunt's raspberry pie recipe, and I have searched the web for a similar one without any luck. This is what I can remember of the recipe, and it is terrific. It also works for cherries, but you may want to add food coloring to keep it red. Crust is my standard easy to roll crust.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Crust.
  2. Combine flour, sugar, salt. Cut in shortening and butter. Beat together water, egg and vinegar. Add to flour/shortening/butter mixture and mix until dough forms. Separate into four balls. Use two for this pie and freeze the rest for another time.
  3. Filling.
  4. Bring raspberries, water, sugar, lemon juice and tapioca to a boil. Add 1/2 tsp almond extract and remove from heat.
  5. Pie.
  6. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Roll one ball of dough into a round circle large enough to fit your pie plate. Line the pie pan. Pour/ladle filling into crust lined pie plate until it is almost full. (You may have more filling than you need depending upon the size of your pie plate.) Roll the second ball of dough into another circle. Place on top of pie and seal edges. You may also lattice the top. Bake at 425 degrees for 15 minutes and then 350 degrees for 45 minutes.
