Cost breakdown for this recipe

Raspberry pie is such a simple recipe that results in amazing flavor and sweetness. By using a from scratch pie crust, you can then cut the cost of the pie and also have more control over ingredients. For instance, if you suffer from allergies or food sensitivities, you can customize the pie to fit your needs.

Personally, having many food allergies, making food from scratch is the only way to keep symptoms under control.

Below is the cost breakdown for each ingredient for this Raspberry Pie recipe.

Raspberry Filling Cost:
4 cups fresh raspberries $6.45

Homemade Pie Crust Recipe

1/2 tsp salt
2 2/3 cups flour
1/2 cup ice cold water
1 cup cold butter

1. Cut the butter into 1/4-inch cubes, then add the butter to the bowl of the food processor.
2. Secondly, combine flour and salt in the bowl of a Cuisinart Food Processor.
3. Turn the food processor on until the flour and butter blend and become coarse crumbles.
4. Add 1/4 cup ice cold water and then add a little at a time until the water is fully incorporated, and the dough does not stick to the sides of the bowl.
5. Separate this dough in three parts for three crusts and then place each in a plastic bag. Then close the bag and using your hands, form the dough into a flat hockey puck, let them rest for 1-hour in the fridge.
6. Take the pie crust out of the fridge and then roll out the crust on a well-floured surface with a rolling pin. I roll it down once or twice in a direction then spin the crust in a clockwise rotation to get it into a large square or circle shape.
7. Place the rolling pin in the middle of crust and flip one side over the top to carry it onto the pie pan, this is much easier than doing it with just your hands.
8. Flute the edges or make a design with the prongs of a fork. To make the edges, for example, I used my thumb and pointer finger to pinch the edges.

I have not always had the skills to cook and bake from scratch. As a young wife, I bought every meal frozen or boxed and presented it to my husband with a flourish, believing myself a decadent cook. As our budget shrunk, and our family grew, I looked for ways to stretch our money to nourish our kids with the best for their hungry appetites. Hoping to find recipes and meals that they would love to eat. Through the last 5 years, I have learned so many cooking and baking lessons, and experienced many wins and failures. Come along with me on this journey as I share my recipes that work, how to make them on the cheap, and my tips and tricks to get my kids to eat homemade deliciousness! I will also share updates to our house that we have done in the last year since our move. With one income, we do most of the work ourselves and with amazing family and friends to help out, cutting costs but keeping style and money in the bank! I am a wife and mother of 3 boys and 1 princess. When I was a kid, I remember being asked what I wanted to be or do when I grew up. My response was, "a mom", and I am proud to grow up and be a mom to 4 amazing kids! Samuel is 11, Matthew is 8, Levi is 4, and Elliana is almost 2. We have been blessed to have kids who love to explore foods, to try new recipes, and enjoy helping us around the house. With 4 kids, you better believe they help clean! My husband Tyler and I have been married almost 13 years. We love our kids, we love outdoors, camping, canoeing, grilling, watching movies, and just hanging out making memories. A few years ago I gifted Tyler with his own "menu" book, where we write meals and foods we have loved to eat. Weekly our family decides what our meals will be and I make up a grocery list with what we need. It literally is my favorite chore! I love to shop, so shopping for food on a budget is my biggest win! Thank you for taking the time and visiting my site, Subscribe so you do not miss a post! Keep coming back to hear about new recipes, updates on our home, fun times with our kids, and how to make homemade deliciousness! ~Monica
