I doubled the recipe and got two FULL pies... Given I was doubling and my husband only brought home three cups of raspberries, I was short three cups of fruit.... So I added in two cups of mandarin oranges, cut into small 'bits' and one cup of pineapple pieces. It was delicious -- the mandarin did not over-power the raspberry at all, but seemed to resolve the 'tartness' issue some of the other reviews mentioned. One note, the pies were so full they took almost 90 minutes to bake until they were firm in the middle. For the crumble I used ritz crackers instead of grahams -- scrumptious, buttery and 'nutty'.... made a very 'sophisticated' topping for a simple but also sophisticated pie. The end of both pies were eagerly taken home by guests, at the end of the potluck (darn, now I need to make two more). I got GREAT comments from everyone who tried it and I was the 'star' of the family potluck.
