Once again it is raspberry season and I am in the thick of it. My freezer is filling with raspberries. I am infusing two pints of raspberry vinegar. I made a batch of raspberry chipotle barbecue sauce and liked it so much that the next day I made a double batch and canned it. I’ve made two raspberry pies, one of them is this Raspberry Cream Pie that I’m going to tell you about. I found it here (Taste of Home) and it’s really good. It’s light and airy and not too sweet. I used a graham cracker crust instead of the vanilla wafer one called for in the original recipe because I don’t have any vanilla wafers. Sorry about the dearth of pictures. I didn’t think I’d be posting it, but it’s just SO good!

Raspberry Cream Pie -2Graham Cracker Crust:

Mix together 1-1/2 cups crushed graham crackers with 3 Tbsp. sugar and 1/3 cup melted butter. Press into greased 9″ pie plate. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes. Allow to cool.

Cream Filling:

  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream, whipped
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 2/3 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons orange liqueur (Grand Marnier)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

I prepared the whipped cream in my mixer first, then scraped it into a bowl and set it aside. Mix the softened cream cheese, powdered sugar, orange liqueur, and vanilla extract until smooth. Fold in the whipped cream. Spoon the filling into the pie crust and chill.

Raspberry Topping:

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • 1-1/2 cups fresh or frozen raspberries

Stir sugar and cornstarch together in small saucepan. Add water and raspberries. Bring to a boil, stirring, and boil for 2 minutes or until somewhat thickened. Transfer to a small bowl and chill.

Spoon the raspberry topping over the pie filling. Chill until serving.

Larry_ApplePicking

My husband and I picked apples this morning. I’m in Alaska and they’re a little on the small side. Then I came home and picked raspberries from the back yard. The recipe is based on one from Martha Stewart. So, I went a little rogue with the recipe, but that’s okay. Who knows how many raspberries I threw in there. It looks pretty ugly, but I just tasted some of the dripping and it’s heavenly.

I don’t usually peel these little apples, but this time I did. The ones I picked were nearly normal sized and I didn’t know if the peel would be tough, so I peeled.

Bake on bottom rack of oven (set the pie on a baking sheet to catch the overflow drips) for 1 hour ten minutes to 1 hour twenty minutes. I baked mine for 1 hour and 25 minutes. You’re looking for the juice bubbles to burst slowly. Mine seems perfect. Can hardly wait to try it.
