A showcase for whatever fresh Ontario fruit is at its peak (strawberries, blueberries, peaches and, of course, raspberries), the pie appears on The Globe’s menu all summer long.

The pastry shell is baked first and allowed to cool, then filled with fresh fruit. Beth pours a velvety vanilla custard over the fruit and tops this with a frothy meringue. The final step is to brown the meringue in a hot oven, then refrigerate the pie for at least an hour to allow it to set. She advises serving it right away as it does not have a long shelf life.
