For days and days and days!
I hate blogs where you have to read a whole stinking story just to get to the recipe - so here are the recipes :) Notes below recipes.
1 pie crust - store-bought or homemade
6ish cups of raspberries
GLAZE: 1 cup sugar, 3 tbsp corn syrup, 3 tbsp corn starch, pinch of salt, 1 cup water, 2 tablespoons raspberry jello powder
1. Cook crust according to directions
2. While crust is cooking, prepare glaze by mixing all glaze ingredients except jello mix in a saucepan over low heat on stove; bring to a slight boil and then reduce until clear. Mix in jello powder. Let cool.
3. Put rinsed, air-dried raspberries in pie crust, and pour glaze over berries into pie.
4. Chill for at least an hour. Serve with a dollop of whipped cream on top!

**I would never make a raspberry pie if I had to actually buy raspberries. But our raspberry plants are like my husband's 5th child so...we have an abundance.
**I actually made two pudding pies; one of them according to the pudding package directions and one without 2 cups of milk (because I wasn't paying attention and totally forgot the extra two cups of milk); the one with lesser milk set up much nicer and was far easier to cut.
**To wash raspberries, place gently into a colander and lower colander into a bowl or sink-full of water. If you spray them with your faucet they will fall apart.
