In a few ways this dessert didn't meet my expectations and that is the reason for my "ok" rating. Although a good dessert it lacks in some important qualities. As stated in the cons, the crust is rock solid and is very hard to cut through. Second the filling is too bitter. I followed the recipe to a T. There is too much lemon/salt flavor in the filling. I was really hoping for a frozen sorbet type of flavor, so if you are too, this is not the dessert for you. This is the second time I've made it. I would make it again with more sugar in the filling, and a different crust...perhaps using chocolate graham crackers for a base. Hope you find this review a help. :) It is worth a try I suppose, but I wouldn't necessarily recommend the recipe.
Frozen Raspberry Pie
From EatingWell: August/September 2006
This creamy, luscious pie is made by combining a fluffy cooked meringue with a raspberry puree, then pouring the mixture into a chocolate-cookie crust.

Couldn't you just use store bought chocolate cookie crust? Or would that change the flavor?
Ruthi, I think this would work very well with your other local fruits, but you probably would want to change the crust from chocolate to graham cracker crust. The second time you make it you might want to try adding a little bit of spice to your tropical fruit, such as nutmeg, ginger, or cinnamon if you like spiced fruits, but I'm sure it's great plain.
Can I use other kind of fruits? I live in a country where rasbarry is very expensive!
Maybe mango, peaches or plums?
I appreciate your answer.
Put it this way, I ate half a pie. I was with two other guys and when we looked at the pie, you just cut it into four slices. We kid ourselves, but the only way you are going to get 8 servings is if there are 8 people at the table and you do not want to be rude ;).
This is one of the best dessert out there and will work very well with the upcoming summer. You can even skip the pie crust and make a homemade "sorbet" out of this. This dish rocked!!
