Streusel Topping Raspberry Pie with a Peach Gelatin Sauce

This delicious raspberry pie recipe blends berries and tapioca for a juicy filling with nuts, oats and more for a delicious streusel style topping. The piecrust is homemade and the raspberry pie is served with homemade peach sauce, made with peach gelatin. You cannot use gelatin in the raspberry pie because it needs to be baked but you can use it to make the tasty peach sauce.

“Streusel” is German for sprinkled or scattered and this word applies to any fruit or raspberry pie with this type of topping. You can also call it a crumble recipe. Flour, butter, and white sugar are traditional ingredients if you want to know how to make streusel but some streusel topping recipes have nuts in or other ingredients.

The peach gelatin sauce is made with peach gelatin, peach puree, sugar, and water. It goes well with raspberry pie recipes because it is sweet and fruity. You could use a different flavor of gelatin if you wanted, and a different fruit.
