Raspberry Custard Pie

This is one of my favorite recipes from when I was a kid - though more when I was a teenager. My family would go 'up north' to a cabin for a week every summer, and one of our traditions was to pick wild blueberries and raspberries. The blueberries we'd mostly just eat fresh. But the raspberries would be made into jam and this custard pie, a recipe of my grandma's. I don't remember having this very frequently at home, but every year we'd try making it up at the cabin even though every year we forgot the recipe at home. One year we finally remembered it, so we stuck it behind a picture frame - and it was there every year after!

It's really not that complicated of a recipe :)
Raspberry Custard Pie
crust for 9in pan
1 1/2 c milk
3 eggs
1/4 c sugar plus 1-2T for berries
1t vanilla

Cover the unbaked crust with raspberries. Sprinkle 1-2T sugar over the berries. Whisk well the milk, sugar and eggs and vanilla. Pour over berries. Bake in a 450 over for 15 min, reduce heat to 350 and bake another 30 min or til custard is set.

My grandmother always made this pie. I have asked my mother how it should be made and she could never come up with the recipe although we knew it had to be pretty simple.

Thanks for posting this, I am going to try it out and hopefully it will be just like hers.
