Razzleberry pie is a raspberry and blackberry pie made with the best pie crust ever, and it's impossible to resist when served warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream!
What is Razzleberry pie?
Traditionally, razzleberry pie filling is made out of blackberries and raspberries, although this variety of pie has only been popular since the 1990's. I've seen homemade versions add blueberries, but in my opinion, that's not a true razzleberry pie. If there is such a thing.
The Marie Calender's Razzleberry Pie (delicious by the way) only contains blackberries and raspberries, so I wanted to stay as close to the true Razzleberry pie as we know it, as possible.
That being said--this razzleberry pie is even better than Marie's (gasp!). Thanks in part, to my mom's pie crust recipe. I know everyone claims to have the best pie crust, but I would bet money on this pie crust. It's so, so, so good.
This really is one of the quickest pies to make. The crust dough can even be made up to 3 days in advance if wrapped in plastic and stored in the fridge, and the razzleberry filling only takes a minute or two to mix up.
Basically you can have this thing assembled in the time it takes to preheat the oven!
I highly recommend serving this on the hot side of warm, with a scoop of French vanilla ice cream.... so delicious.
