This recipe was given to me years ago by a good friend who loved raspberries in any way, shape or form. They are not exactly my favorite fruit, but I am including this recipe for my Birmingham buddy. Thanks, Patty!

  • 1 pkg
    refrigerated pie crusts
  • 1 c
  • 1/3 c
    all purpose flour
  • 5 c
  • 2 tsp
    finely shredded lemon peel
  • ·
    milk and sugar, optional



  1. Roll out pastry and place in a 9" pie plate.
  2. Combine sugar and flour in a large bowl and stir in the raspberries and the lemon peel. Gently toss the berries until well coated. Transfer the berry mixture to the pastry-lined pie plate.
  3. On a lightly floured surface roll remaining dough into a 12-in. circle. For a lattice crust, trim bottom pastry to 1/2 inch beyond edge of pie plate. Cut rolled pastry into 1/2 inch strips and weave strips over filling. Fold bottom crust over strip ends, trimming strips as necessary. For a 2-crust pie, trim bottom pastry to edge of pie plate. Cut slits in top crust for escaping steam. Place on filling and fold edge under bottom pastry. Crimp edge. If desired, brush pastry top with a little milk and sprinkle with a little sugar.
  4. Cover edge of pie with foil to prevent over-browning. Bake for 25 minutes in a 375-degree oven. Remove foil. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes more, until pie is golden brown. Cool on a wire rack. Serve warm with ice cream.
