This is a recipe from one of my favorite cookbooks Bless Your Heart: Saving the World One Covered Dish at a Time. This book is such a fantastic collection of recipes, all of them easy. Sometimes when I leaf through it, I can’t decide what I want to make because I want to make pretty much everything.

Chocolate and raspberries pair so well together. Between the oreo crust and the chocolate glaze drizzled on top, this pie has plenty of chocolate to complement the raspberries.

The filling is sweet but also a little tangy from 3 tablespoons of lemon and the raspberries.
