This Amish Style Raspberry Pie is one of the easiest pies to make, but don’t let that fool you. This pie will blow your tastes buds out of the water. Being from rural South East Wisconsin (synonymous with Amish Country), I’ve had my fair share of delectable Amish pies and this one is spot on.

Of course, they do not use refrigerator roll-out-dough like in this recipe (sacrilege I’m told) but after playing around with this recipe, I took some techniques from other pie recipes and made it simplified. And honest-to-goodness it instantly took me back to those Raspberry pies from when I was younger, especially my mother’s, and her way of making Amish Style Raspberry Pie.

I mean, it’s pretty darn close, but her crust has always been better. Maybe it’s a nostalgia thing or maybe some recipes, no matter how many times you make them, they never seems to taste like when a loved one makes it for you. I think it’s because it is actually made with love. Anyway, for all of you that are looking for an incredibly easy, tasty, raspberry pie: this is the one for you.

Make sure to place your pie plate on top of a baking sheet as occasionally the pie can boil over and that is a mess no one ever wants to clean.

Bake for 55 minutes at 350°F until golden brown.
