In spite of harsh conditions, raspberries grow very well in Alaska. With a bumper crop there are berries to make jams and jellies, candy, and all sorts of baked goodies including raspberry pie. It is really hard to describe the fresh taste of a raspberry pie made with berries you picked only minutes ago. The particular pie shown was an entry in the Alaska State Fair in Palmer, Alaska.
The decoration on the pie is made with left over pie dough, colored with a bit of food coloring and then rolled out and cut to shape.
