TODAY IS...RASPBERRY PIE DAY
Raspberries were one of the first European plants brought to America. They belong to the rose family and are usually red or purple - although you can also find gold and black. These sweet berries have tiny edible seeds and an intense flavor and aroma. This makes them perfect for flavors and syrups, but their most common use is in preserves and pies. They like to grow in the northern temporate zones - and they like to be eaten everywhere
RASPBERRY CRISP PIE
1 qt (4 cups) fresh raspberries
1/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup margarine, softened
1/3 cup flour
1/3 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup rolled oats
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
2. Wash the raspberries and put in the bottom of a 9 inch baking pan. If you don't have a deep dish pie pan, use a casserole dish. Sprinkle sugar over the top of the raspberries.
3. In a medium bowl, mix the margarine, flour, brown sugar and oats with the back of a fork until it looks like coarse meal. Sprinkle over the raspberries and sugar.
4. Bake 30 minutes or until lightly browned. Serve hot or cold. Top with vanilla ice cream if desired.
