Red Currant Pie Recipe
I got this recipe from a friend in Germany. It's a delicious way to incorporate red currants into baking.
Made this with fresh currants from our garden, and without any alterations or substitutions to the recipe. Company loved it. It's pretty simple. You don't have to roll out the dough, you can just press it into the bottom of a springform pan. Even easier. Can use raspberries also.
Bravo Patti ! My husband and I have red currents growing in our garden for this very reason !We both know this exact pie from Freiburg,Germany ! This recipe is easy and very delicious ! I found that it as just as good to use my cuisenart for the dough and then just pat it in firmly into the pie pan . Put the pan in the fridge for 30 minutes and it is ready to be baked. Also the heat of the oven was 360 for the final 10 minutes. It also helps to use a "spring form " pan as it is a delicate pie.

A classic red currant jelly made from fresh currants. This came from my one of my mother's handwritten recipe cards. I do not know its origin, but know it probably dates back to the early 1940's.
