Raspberry Goddess Pie

A note from Joelle...
I have been a huge fan of Irish cook Donal Skehan's recipes for about four years and am glad that his food blog have now turned into a great website, cooking book and TV show! This is one of his Swedish dessert recipe that look so simple, but tastes delicious!

Here are the ingredients:
225g of plain flour, 125g of caster sugar, 125g of butter, 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract, 1 teaspoon of baking powder, 250g of raspberries, 200ml of creme fraiche

Mix together the flour, sugar, butter, vanilla extract and baking powder until it forms a dough.
Press the dough into a lined baking tin and then place in the fridge to rest for 30 mins.
Preheat the oven to 225˚C.

Mix together the raspberries and crème fraiche, vanilla extract and 2 tablespoons of sugar in a bowl and then spread over the base of the pie dough. Make sure to even out the mixture with a spoon/spatula.

Bake in the oven for 15 mins. Then lower the heat to 150˚C and bake for another 15 mins.

Allow to cool and serve slices with vanilla ice cream, whipped cream or fresh berries
This is the pie before in went into the oven. The pictures of it cooked were very blurry so could not upload the final result :(. It looked great though!
I also made a strawberry pie for those that didn't like raspberries! All the ingredients were the same, but I just substituted the raspberries for strawberries.
