I've been cooking for ten years, and this my first pie! I did such a bad job cutting the slices neatly that I wasn't going to take a photo, but the pie was so good that I wanted to immortalize it. :D

It's supposed to be served with whipped cream on top, but I'm not wild about whipped cream in general. In spite of the ridiculous flourescent pink color, this pie contains honest-to-goodness raspberries in the filling (well, you put 3 T of raspberry gelatin in the chiffon layer to set it). But the jam layer is all raspberries! Raspberries we grew ourselves!

I've wanted to do this recipe for a while now, glad it turned out for you!

It was kind of a leap of faith, because I've never eaten a chiffon pie, let alone make one. It's so hard to find recipes for nice summer desserts, so I'm glad this one turned out well. It actually was pretty easy to make, even if it did have a lot of steps.

The sliced pie looked so much prettier in the picture in the cooking magazine, but I have a feeling it was plastic food. XD Maybe I need to hire a food stylist to take pictures for me?

I had a feeling you wouldn't say no to sweets! The pie was actually pretty good. Next time I want to try key lime!
