Don´t think that it´s warmer here in Austria than anywhere else! These pictures are cheating although the grass is snow free and slowly getting green. As a big raspberry fan I baked a "Rasberry Pie under an Almond Blanket" a la Pernilla Wahlgren. Pernilla seems to love sugar, I used less sugar, but if you are a sweet sugar mouse you bake the pie exactly as written underneath. It´s a nice combination, warm raspberries under an egg white marzipan blanket. Serve it warm with vanilla ice cream or on the next day where the taste of marzipan is stronger.
