Raspberry Cream Pie

Berry season is here! I don’t know about y’all but I’ve never been more excited for summer. We planted raspberries last summer and it looks like we are going to have tons this year! I have already started experimenting with recipes in anticipation of all of the fresh raspberries coming my way.
Recently, I was in my favorite kitchen supply store, Kitchen Kneads, and saw that they had something called Red Berry Pie Tone. I asked what it was and found out that it was a pie thickener. They said that it was better than the Danish Dessert stuff that is usually used for fresh berry pies. It was also WAY less expensive. I had to give it a try and it was a great excuse to make this delicious dessert!
Now, you’re probably thinking, “I don’t live near Kitchen Kneads so where can I get this pie tone stuff?” Well, you’re in luck because you can order it from them online! This store is such a GEM! They’ve been in business for 46 years! They have so many specialty items and it’s where I go to find unique things like Red Berry Pie Tone. You can order it here!
I adapted this recipe from one that I got from my mother-in-law, who got it from her sister, who got it from who knows where. Ha! I hope you love it because it is a family favorite in my house!
