This is a delicious pie! I've made it 4 times in the last 2 weeks and I used 1/4 cup of tapioca instead of the 2 1/2 T. because of the potential for being runny. It came out perfectly everytime. And I didn't grind the tapioca. Just used it as is, like I always do, and it was perfect. Try a crump topping instead of a crust: butter, flour, sugar. Wonderful!

Disaster! First, it was quite sour. (I made no adjustments and made it as directed.) Second, the tapioca. I've never used it before and bought small pearl tapioca from the baking aisle. I figured it would bake it, but no. It came out looking like tons of white BB's mixed in with the raspberries! It was like eating watermelon: chew, spit, chew spit! And it absorbed no liquid as it became raspberry soup. Had to throw out the whole pie. Did I use the wrong tapioca? If so, please adjust the ingredients so it is more specific!

This recipe is full of raspberry flavour. I used my home-grown frozen raspberries. I also ground the tapioca to a fine powder in my coffee grinder (found that hint on another site!) and it thickened the pie perfectly, without that "cornstarchy" taste from using cornstarch. This is a great pie, thank you Nancy for sharing it.

I have made this pie with raspberries and blueberries. I used a 16oz bag of fresh frozen blueberries and reduced the sugar to 3/4 cup (because blueberries are so very sweet) and this recipe worked like a charm! It's just such a perfect blend of flavor! I also use cornstarch instead of tapioca and I assumed she meant to put cut up pieces of butter over the filling under the crust/lattice. ***** pie! a gr8 recipe!

This is the most awsome raspberry pie recipe!! This is from someone who doesn't even care to much for raspberries and it got a similar review from my uncle with the same feeling toward raspberries :0) I printed this recipe out in 2004 (sorry for the late review) and I have made this recipe numerous times. It is very easy and has come out PERFECT every time. The last time I made it I did not have any lemon juice so I used 1 tsp lemon extract and it was wonderful! Also I always use frozen unsweetened raspberries and mix all ingredients when the berries are still frozen. I make the dough and then when the mixture is completely thawed I fill the crust and bake. GREAT recipe - THANK YOU so much :0)

Nice simple recipe. Instead of using 4 cups of raspberries, I used 2 cups of raspberries and 2 cups of sliced strawberries. Delicious! Will make this again and again.

It was good and all...maybe I'm doing something wrong, but it was REALLY runny :( It was still tasty though!

This is a very tasty pie that is simple to make. I used frozen crust to save time & as I didn't have cream I used milk & it was wonderful. We don't usually finish a whole pie but we did this time!
