Grandma’s Apple Raspberry Pie

My Grandmother was known for her beautiful homemade apple pie. The crust was always super flaky and packed chock full of sweet apple filling. “Picture perfect” we would call them:)

The recipe I am sharing combines a less sweet, but very flaky dough, with a sweet and tart filling that is par cooked to allow for a “mile high” effect! I have added raspberries that we picked over the summer and had flash frozen. You can use fresh raspberries if you prefer. Either way, this pie will be the star of your dessert table this holiday !

I have included three separate photo galleries…and complete printable instructions.

Mother’s Day Brunch Menu

Wishing all of our “Mothers” a very Happy Mother’s Day!

“Hope” is the thing with feathers-

That perches in the soul-

And sings the tune without the words-

And never stops- at all-

 

~An excerpt from the poem “Hope” is the thing with feathers~ Emily Dickinson

This passage from the poem written by Emily Dickinson is a favorite of mine. I feel it is especially relevant on this special weekend when we honor all of our wonderful and dedicated mothers.

This poem reminds me of the tireless hope, that we, as Mothers, and as parents feel for our children’s future dreams and aspirations. Becoming  a Mother or even “like a Mother” to a child, changes the way we think, act and feel. Suddenly, there is much more appreciation for the little things, as well as much more admiration for our own Mother’s and the time and effort it took for them to raise us.

A Mother never stops hoping that her child will be the best version of themselves; healthy, safe and happy.
