NO-BAKE RASPBERRY CREAM CHEESE PIE — A sweet cream cheese base is topped with a tart raspberry filling plus more fresh raspberries in this easy no-bake pie that’s sure to be a summer time favorite.
If there is a favorite dessert at my house, it’s got to be pie, and this No-Bake Raspberry Cream Cheese Pie was a huge hit with everyone in my family.
I mean, what’s not to love about a creamy, cheesecake-style base topped with a homemade raspberry filling. And even more fresh raspberries for garnish. And don’t forget the vanilla wafer crust!
Or, if you prefer, a graham cracker crust would be equally delicious. Either way, this pie has summer written all over it. It’s cool, creamy, and the perfect way to use up those in-season berries.
You can substitute frozen raspberries in the cooked topping portion of the recipe, but I definitely recommend using fresh raspberries for the garnish.
The raspberry topping will need to cool before you add it to the pie, so make sure you plan ahead for that. Besides that, this pie really couldn’t be any easier to put together.
This is also a perfect dessert for a summer potluck, and could easily be doubled and prepared in a 9×13 pan to feed a crowd. Although I’m sure my family would happily polish off two of these pies in a hurry!
If you’re looking for a quick, easy dessert that’s perfect for warmer weather, look no further than this No-Bake Raspberry Cream Cheese Pie. I hope you love it as much as we do.
Be sure to save this No-Bake Raspberry Cream Cheese Pie recipe to your favorite Pinterest board for later.
