Raspberry Cream Pie Recipe

Tuesday, August 1st, 2017

Happy August! We wanted to kick off this month’s recipe posts with something cool and slightly simple, yet indulgent enough to serve during the rest of our summertime parties and barbecues. It just so happens to be Raspberry Cream Pie Day, which, lucky for us (and you), fits our August recipe criteria.

What You’ll Need:

Crust:

  • 2 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugarRaspberry Recipes
  • 6 tablespoons butter, melted

Cream Cheese Filling:

  • 1 (8 oz) package cream
    cheese, softened
  • 2/3 cup confectioners’ sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup heavy whipping
    cream, whipped

Raspberry Topping:

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 4 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 4 tablespoons water
  • 2½ cups fresh or frozen raspberries, divided

Directions:

  1. Grease a 9-inch pie plate. In a medium bowl, combine graham cracker crumbs, sugar and butter. Press onto the bottom and sides of the pie plate.
  2. In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese, confectioners’ sugar and vanilla on medium until light and fluffy. Fold in whipped cream and spread into crust. Chill.
  3. In a saucepan combine sugar and cornstarch. Stir in water and about 1½ cups of raspberries, bring to a boil. Cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Transfer to a large bowl and chill.
  4. When ready to serve, take both parts out of the refrigerator and spread the raspberry topping over the filling. Garnish with remaining berries.

Pie Recipes for Pi Day

Tuesday, March 14th, 2017

Happy Pi Day! Whether you are a mathematician or not, be sure to indulge in a slice of pie (or the whole thing – we don’t judge) sometime today. And if you need some recipe ideas, here are six.

Chocolate Banana Chiffon Pie

This pie has it all: flavor, lightness, fluffiness, decadence and a timeless factor.

Chocolate Marshmallow Pie

If you want the above factors without the banana (and if you like recipes with no more than five ingredients).

Georgia Pecan Pie

Brown sugar, vanilla and pecans create a warm smelling and flavorful pie that is best served hot.

Apple Crisp Pecan Pie

Apple Crisp Pecan Pie

Okay, this one actually has it all. Nuts, apples, a crispy coating – serve this pie anytime throughout the year [with vanilla ice cream].

Apple Pie

A fail-proof take on an American classic.

Whoopie Pie

We wouldn’t be true New Englanders if we didn’t include this dessert on this list. Did you know the whoopie pie is the state treat of Maine? And be sure to check out this red velvet version.

Leave the name of your favorite pie – to make or eat – in the comments below and don’t forget to treat yourself to a slice!
