by Cheri of From Out of the Cracks

Today we have a recipe from Jenni Thomson from
RiverBird. Jenni says, "Here is a great summer recipe I got from my Grama Jean Thomson. She grew up in Minneapolis and loved to eat the raspberries her mom grew there. This pie is melt in your mouth delicious and perfect to make while the raspberries are in season!"

Lake of the Isles Pie
