Homemade Raspberry Pie

Have you noticed how my last 4 or 5 food posts have been dessert-type recipes? I'm still sharing with you all the yummy things we ate while at the lake house. Notice how healthy I eat while spending a holiday weekend with my family? Oh yeah! It was all about sweets, desserts, and calories while we were there. I just pretended everything was fat free while eating it. Ha ha ha!

Look at this beautiful pie! My mom made it to share with us all and it was mighty tasty! It's similar to her famous strawberry pie only made with raspberries instead!
