  7. Kathryn Witte Thoma says:

    Fresh raspberry pie; it’s uncooked berries piled high in a pre-baked pie shell and covered with a mashed raspberry, sugar and cornstarch sauce. Refrigerate until thoroughly cool. Eat as soon as possible or it will begin to weep. Makes a great breakfast as well as dessert!

    An easy but awesome sweet for summer is my Italian Pizzelle, 2 for this treat, and homemade of course. An option would be to dip the ends in chocolate, and fill with your favorite choice of ice cream. Wrap up sandwich and freeze for a summer treat or to eat anytime. YUMMY
