Another question (sigh)

I think I won't offer to make a pie for my friend anytime again soon. Now he doesn't want P'nut butter and chocolate. One last effort and I'm done.

I have found a recipe for a raspberry,apple, cranberry pie. It call for 3 tbsp. of tapioca. I don't use tapioca and hate to buy a bunch for 3 tbsp. Can anyone suggest an alternative ingredient?

Also, if you have a recipe for raspberry pie send it along. I will be making the peanut butter pie for us, it looks like a great recipe.

You can replace it with corn starch. It is just being used as a thickening agent in the pie.

You can also replace the anti-coconut-chocolate-peanut butter friend with a chocolate coconut peanut butter loving friend.

The raspberries might have seeds....they might stick in their teeth or cause problems with diverticulitis and give them a pain in the ......

A vanilla pudding pie might be a possibility?
