I'm going to ask the administrator to delete the recipe. I know people steal recipes all the time, but I'm not one of them. I feel like a thief. The recipe came to me through my aunt, who had so many of my grandma's recipes, so I had no way of knowing. Thanks for pointing this out to me.

As for the butter, I add it to the saucepan just before I add the raspberries.

I'm still thinking. You don't suppose Phyllis got the same recipe, do you? I'm going to write to my aunt and see what she says. I know that my grandma served this to her little club of six women when they met at her house. This is strange.... Anyway, I'll contact an administrator, and thanks again.
My goodness! You are one honest little recipe user, Anne!

Please don't cry because you'll make us all sad.

You know? I think there are very, very few original recipes ... people take a recipe and tweak it just a bit and make it their own. And even when you don't tweak it, do you really think it's THAT awful for you to call the yummy pie your Auntie Mabel made "Auntie Mabel's yummy pie" rather than "that pie from the Betty Crocker cookbook that Auntie Mabel made"?

Me, I don't. It just makes sense that the yummy-sounding pie recipe you posted seems to you to be your grandma's, and that's good enough for me. I get your point and I admire you for it, but give yourself a break!

I only wish I could get ahold of raspberries to try it!!!!

Anne, who knows? she may have got it from YOUR GRANDMOTHER! There are so many recipes it would be impossible to check all of them back to their roots. Even the tv cooks and chefs may have just put a twist on someone else's recipes to make it their own. Even with cuisine changing every day, the entire thought probably wasn't original with the presenter, even if they don't know how the idea hit them. I've seen many dishes prepared by others that I thought I was the only one who made it, only to find out the same idea occurred to them also. Someone has a Carl Sagan quote that to me describes much of creative thought. I can't remember exactly how it goes, but I'm sure you will recognize it when you see it.

Ayrton and Licia, thank you for your posts. I think, if Phyllis Bartholomew didn't get this recipe in another way, she could have gotten it, indirectly, from my grandmother and perhaps not even have known it. Like you said, every recipe originates somewhere, and my grandmother's recipe was published in almost the same words. Oh well, it's overwith. Nothing like finding out in your first week here that you might have used a copyrighted recipe, though! Thanks to both of you for the support. I really appreciate it. <-------- Awww,
isn't he cute?!

Your Cherry-red Raspberry Pie sound wonderful and as I mentioned to you before you a wonderful cook. I have made cherry pie before but never tried it with red raspberries.

You have a great day.
