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!!!!
