    To serve, in medium bowl with electric mixer, beat whipping cream, powdered sugar and vanilla on high speed until stiff peaks form. Garnish pie or individual servings with whipped cream. Store in refrigerator.

Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Don't have fresh raspberries on hand? No problem. Substitute with frozen raspberries and add an extra teaspoon of cornstarch to help absorb some of the excess juice from the frozen fruit. You may need to bake for a few extra minutes as well.
  • tip 2
    Almond complements raspberry flavor nicely. When making your whipped topping, reduce vanilla to 3/4 teaspoon and add 1/4 teaspoon of almond extract to add a delicious almond twist to your raspberry pie!
  • tip 3
    Be sure to press pie crust firmly into the bottom and sides of the pie plate to keep the pie crust from shrinking during baking.

More About This Recipe

  • Homemade pie? Oh, pa-leeeze! Who's got time to make pie? News flash: You do!

    I'll admit, I've made my share of pies with homemade crusts like my grandma did. There are lots of days, though, when a pie sounds irresistable -- but the long prep and mess make it totally resistable. On those days, I head for the fridge to fetch a ready-made crust.

    Now don't curl your lips up like that. I didn't used to be a fan either. But over the years, these refrigerated pie crusts have gone from good to amazing -- totally tasty, tender and flaky.

    And here's my closing argument: If the decision is whether or not to have a homemade pie for dessert tonight, I'll take the pie -- refrigerated crust and all -- every time. I rest my case.

    So, this is Pillsbury's super easy recipe for Fresh Raspberry Pie -- check it out below -- and it's about the best thing since sliced bread for the 4th of July. Serious delish on a plate. Serious ease on the prep. And if you want to red-white-and-blue it up, just add some blueish sprinkles to the top and your pie'll be as colorific as the flag.

    My pie didn't last long enough for me to add the blue sprinkles. Once I bit into that bite on the fork there, I put the camera down ... sigh ... and you can guess the rest.
