Complete ingredients and instructions can be found when you scroll to the bottom of this post for the full printable recipe card. 

For the Crust:

  • Double pie crust – Refrigerated or frozen pie crusts from the grocery store both work, you’ll need a top and bottom. Or you can make pie dough using this homemade pie crust recipe.  If you are making your own pie crust with this recipe, you’ll need to double it to get top and bottom. 

For the Filling:

  • Raspberries – Fresh raspberries are great for this raspberry pie filling but frozen will also work. (see notes)
  • Lemon juice – Freshly squeezed lemon juice helps balance out the sweetness of the raspberry filling.  For a more tart filling add a touch of lemon zest.
  • Sugar – White granulated sugar sweetens the pie.
  • Cornstarch – Cornstarch helps thicken up the filling. 
  • Salt – A pinch of kosher salt enhances the flavor.  If you don’t have kosher salt, any kind will do. 

To Make the Egg Wash:

  • Egg – one large whole egg beaten with the water
  • Water

How to make this raspberry pie recipe

This recipe for homemade raspberry pie comes together quickly and easily. 

First:  Preheat oven to 400 F.

Second: Roll out the bottom pie crust and place it into a 9” pie pan.

Third: Mix together dry ingredients until well dispersed.

Fourth: Toss together raspberries and lemon juice in a separate large bowl. Add dry ingredients and mix until combined.

Fifth: Place the raspberry mixture into the prepared pie plate.

Sixth: Roll out the top crust and cut it into ¾ to 1” thick strips. Lay strips of pastry onto the pie pan and weave back and forth until the top of the pie is covered in the weaved strips to make a lattice crust.

Seventh: Make sure to press the sides of the pie crust together to secure the top and bottom crust. This ensures the filling does not ooze out of the pie when baking.

Eighth: Whisk the egg and water together and using a pastry brush, brush the top crust.

Ninth: Bake in a preheated oven for 40-45 minutes until the crust is golden and the filling is hot and bubbling.

Tenth: Remove from oven and let it come to room temperature before slicing.

I like to serve it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream but any flavor works. 

Cover leftover pie with plastic wrap, or aluminum foil or place it in an airtight container.

Leftover pie lasts for up to 2-3 days on the kitchen counter or you can freeze leftovers for up to 3 months. I like to freeze in individual portions so I can easily pull out one slice at a time.

Substitutions

Remember that when it comes to making substitutions in recipes, you don’t need to be afraid to get creative and use ingredients that suit your personal taste and dietary preferences. Make it your own!

  • Change up the crust and use a graham cracker crust instead. 

  • Use a combination of fresh berries in your pie. 

  • Prepare a streusel topping instead of using a lattice top or double pie crust. 

Tips & Tricks

  • If you prefer a sweeter raspberry filling add a touch of vanilla extract. 

  • Top the pie with a dollop of ice cream or whipped cream for an even more indulgent piece of pie.

  • Keep a can of pie filling in the pantry so you can easily whip up this pie in no time at all. 

  • Bake the pie on a baking sheet in case any of the filling bubbles over the pie shell. It will make clean up easier. 

  • Serve with chocolate syrup for a decadent dessert.
