I am a very novice baker. This was my first attempt to do anything that didn't come straight out of a box... so when I say this was a breeze, you know it was. It was also absolutely delicious. We're not big almond fans, so I omitted the almond extract. I barely got more than a bite of this one. My only regret is not making two!
An easy way to have a delicious, light, but righ, raspberry pie without the seeds. I used seedless raspberry preserves and whipped only 1 cup of heavy cream for filling, as that's all I had. I used Cool Whip around top edge of pie. The pie was delicious and generously filled a regular pie shell. If using 2 cups heavy cream, you might need a deep dish pie shell. I love almonds but am not fond of almond extract, so next time I will omit ingredient. Thanks, Rita, for an easy raspberry pie recipe.
This is very good and easy to make. The raspberry preserves worked fine with the cream and cream cheese to create that wonderful berry flavor.
