One of my nephews loves Raspberry Pie, but I had never made one until now. A friend of the family made one for him at some point, but neither his Mom nor I had taken one on. Frankly, most pictures I see of Raspberry Pie look gross to me - usually a soupy soggy mess. That's probably what kept me from trying it before. After looking at dozens of recipes, I finally pulled together the characteristics I liked, threw in some chilies to play against the sweet of the sugar and berries, and opted for a coconut macaroon crust because most of us love coconut, his Dad doesn't like pie crust dough, and I figured if it ended up soupy at all, I'd rather have juicy coconut than soggy pie crust!
