This is the Best Basic Raspberry Pie Recipe!
Make this homemade berry pie with fresh or frozen raspberries.
Why not make a few of these delectable raspberry pies, freeze the pies, and bake them at a later date?
Serve hot or cold with ice cream or whipped cream. This is my favourite Homemade Raspberry Pastry Pie!
My daughter worked at a country pie shop, and this is the recipe she used to make amazing raspberry pies!
Pastry for a 2 crust pie
1 cup sugar
1/3 cup flour
1/8 tsp. salt
4 cups raspberries (adjust to shell size)
1 tbsp. butter
1 tsp. lemon juice
Combine the sugar, flour and salt in a bowl and mix well.
Sprinkle the above mixture into the bottom of the prepared pie crust just to cover the bottom.
Turn raspberries into prepared crust, alternating raspberries and the remaining dry mixture a few times, ending with the dry mixture on top.
Sprinkle the raspberry filling with lemon juice.
Dot the top of the raspberry filling with butter (divided).
Dampen edges of crust and place the second crust on top.
Trim and crimp to seal.
Cut a few slits in the top.
Whisk the egg, and brush it on the top of the pie crust, right to and including the crimped edges.
Bake at 350° F for about 1 hour.
Pie is ready when the raspberry fruit filling bubbles out of the slits in the top.
Serve pie warm or cold with ice cream or whipped cream.
Note - if baking a frozen pie, bake at 450° F for 15 minutes, and then reduce heat to 350° F for another 40 minutes.
