* Peach Raspberry Crisp Pie- Pie Contest Winner! *

My  favorite - Raspberries - freshly picked from the Farmer's Market. This is how dreams start, recipes are going through my head. Or, should I just eat them now?

Here she is Miss Ruby Raspberry! You go girl, work the camera, that's right, you know you got it going on!

But wait! There is a pie contest today! I have peaches, I have raspberries, I can make a pie, but I need to have it at the contest in 1 1/2 hours! Better start baking!! I didn't take photos of the making of the pie because I was.....well........ trying to make it as quickly as possible to get it delivered to the contest. Off it went, piping hot out of the oven.............

Which pie should we try???

Winner for Yummy Mess.
