One-Crust Raspberry Pie

Raspberry Pie Filling

I have a confession. This recipe recommends cooling the pie for three hours to allow the filling to set. I got impatient…hence why the filling in the picture is just a tad runny. I may have also been a little over-enthusiastic about the amount of whipped cream I dolloped on top. But, hey, it’s pie! And a tasty one!

Needless to say, if you follow the directions (unlike me) the filling will set. But if you’re like me and don’t have the patience to let the filling set, it’s okay. The filling still tastes just as good!

To help encourage patience, take a listen to “I Will Wait for You” sung by Lena Horne. This upbeat tune is masterfully played sung by Horne who creates beautiful lyrical lines within the structure of her unique phrasing.
