If you're looking for something to do today then get ready for a slice of heaven to meet your tongue because it's National Raspberry Cream Pie Day!  And you thought your day couldn't get any better, huh?  Let's get right into celebrating National Raspberry Cream Pie Day!


If you've honestly never had raspberry cream pie before, then I can understand why you'd ask that question. A cream pie doesn't exactly sound all that appealing so how can raspberries make it that much better, right? Well, my perspective changed once I made one and tried it out... this pie is amazing! And I know I'm not the only one that thinks that because there's really only one main reason to have a food holiday like today... because a lot of people like eating raspberry cream pie!  A cream pie can be made in a variety of different ways but it's usually a custard or pudding inside of a thin crust. If you go that route, you'll want to make it out of things like milk, flour, eggs and cream. But you can also make a cream pie with things like heavy whipping cream and cream cheese. Then the crust can be anything from graham crackers to vanilla wafers. And a lot of cream pies will then be topped with whipped cream, but you might want to skip that for today.  You see, there are a couple ways you can make your cream pie into a raspberry cream pie. You could whip your raspberries right into your cream, so that the cream itself is raspberry flavored. You could even step that up a notch and stir in whole raspberries so you have a little something extra to bite into. But the reason you might want to skip the whipped topping is because you can make a nice, raspberry sauce to pour over top of your cream pie to really seal the deal. And you can even get a bit artsy and put some fresh raspberries on top as a garnish.  Choose your own adventure!

So, how can you celebrate today?  Well, you can go on a hunt to find a place that makes their own raspberry cream pie for starters. Call up local restaurants or stop in and ask to see their dessert menu. I can't think of any restaurants near me that serve it off the top of my head but then again I never looked for it on the menus. You can also check local bakeries and hopefully you'll end up with your sweet and creamy bounty! I'm sure you'll find a few places that make it; raspberries are in season after all.   Or you could just make one yourself! It's not that hard, you just have to wait a little bit for your cream to firm up so you can scoop it out like a normal pie. So go pick up a ready made crust, or get some graham crackers or vanilla wafers to crumble up and press into your pie plate as the crust. Then decide on how you want to make your cream... do you want it to be like a pudding or more like a creamy cheesecake? And then of course you want to get your raspberries; fresh is always the best option but frozen works too.  But since it's a holiday why don't you experiment a little to see which way is the best way to make a raspberry pie? There are so many variations you could make today so make sure you get enough cream ingredients, pie crusts and raspberries to go around! You could make a raspberry flavored cream, a raspberry flavored cream with whole raspberries inside it, a raspberry flavored cream with whole raspberries inside it and a raspberry sauce on top, a raspberry flavored cream without whole raspberries inside it and a raspberry sauce on top and on and on! There are so many ways to go about it. You could even invite a few people over and compete to see who makes the best.  Have a great day and enjoy your heavenly pie!
