How to make raspberry pie:
(the ingredient amounts are listed in the printable recipe card further below)
- Gently toss together the raspberries, sugar, cornstarch, and lemon juice.
- Line a 9″ pie plate with a single pie crust.
- Transfer the raspberry filling mixture into the pie and dot with butter.
- Cut a few cute shapes out of the 2nd crust. Place on top of the pie. Seal and crimp as desired. Bake at 425F for 10 minutes, then lower the temperature to 350F and bake for another 40 minutes until bubbling.
- Bake on the lower third of the oven – This helps the bottom bake evenly with the top crust.
- Bake the pie on a cookie sheet – This prevents the filling from spilling and burning onto the bottom of your oven. It also helps brown and crisp up the bottom crust.
- Let cool completely before serving – This will allow the filling to thicken for nice and clean slices.
