- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- pinch nutmeg
- 1 large egg
- 1 tablespoon water
- 9 inch pie plate
- Large bowl

- In a large bowl, mix together the raspberries, raspberry flavoring oil, sugar, flour, lemon juice and nutmeg. Set aside.
- Fill in the 9 inch pie plate with half of the pastry.
- Pour the raspberry mixture inside the pie crust.
- Gently moisten the edges of the crust with a bit of water.
- Cut the rest of the pastry into one inch strips for that beautiful lattice top over the berry mixture.
- Compress the edges to seal them.
- Whisk together the egg and water and brush it lightly over top of the pastry.
- Sprinkle with a bit of extra sugar.
- Place the pie on a baking sheet in case it bubbles over.
- Bake for 15 minutes
- Then REDUCE THE HEAT to 375 degrees Fahrenheit and continue to bake the pie for another 35-40 minutes until the crust is lightly browned and the filling is bubbling (visual cues)
- If the pastry is getting too brown and the filling isn’t bubbling yet, tent some foil over top to prevent more browning.
- Allow the pie to cool completely before slicing so that the filling will firm up.
How do I thicken raspberry pie filling?
This raspberry pie filling is thickened with flour.
Simply mix together the raspberry flavoring with sugar, flour, lemon juice, and nutmeg, and pour the mixture into a ready pie crust. The thickening occurs once the pie is placed in the oven and the heat causes the flour to thicken. In order for it to be perfect, it's important to allow the filling to boil while the pie is baking. Once it's baked, give the pie some time to cool off prior to slicing.

Raspberry Smoothie Recipe
Okay, so this is personally one of my favorite raspberry desserts because of the speed in which it is made and the cold frosty texture mixed with a sharp tarty sweetness. To be honest, I probably make this once a week pretending to be healthy, LOL.
Today we're going beyond the basic milk, ice and raspberries - we're getting crafty and creative here.
Ingredients for raspberry smoothies
- Frozen raspberries: For the best icy texture, we recommend using frozen raspberries. If you’ve got fresh berries from the farmers market, consider freezing them (this is also a great way to preserve them).
- Banana: A banana amps up the sweetness and adds a beautiful creaminess.
- Greek yogurt: Yogurt adds creaminess and a bit of protein. (For plant-based, see below.)
- Raspberry Flavor: This powerful raspberry flavoring has a sensory profile of jammy raspberry with sweet floral and caramel notes and a hint of candy.
- Water and milk: Using part water helps to intensify the pink flavor.
- Maple syrup or honey: Add a little sweetener for just the right pop.
- Ice: Ice adds the final frothy texture.
Smoothies are best enjoyed as soon as possible.
Another option is to freeze it and eat it later like a popsicle.
