Featured with this recipe
This Raspberry Cream Pie recipe is so much better than any other homemade raspberry cream pie I have tried. Most Raspberry Cream Pies consist of a cream cheese layer and a separate raspberry layer with a graham cracker crust. However, this pie recipe combines the cream cheese filling and the raspberry filling to make a delicious fluffy creamy mixture. Additionally, we use an Oreo crust. We love the combo of raspberries and chocolate.
Ingredients in Raspberry Cream Pie
- Oreo Pie Crust – See our notes below on how to make your own Oreo pie crust. If you don’t like Oreos, then you can use a graham cracker crust instead. However, I prefer this Raspberry Cream Pie with an Oreo crust.
- Fresh Raspberries – I love the tart and sweet taste of raspberries. This recipe also works with strawberries, blackberries, and blueberries!
- Sugar – The sugar cooks with the berries to make a delicious raspberry syrup.
- Cream Cheese – Cream cheese adds tangy taste and makes the filling so creamy.
- Whipped Cream – I like making my own whipped cream for this pie using whipping cream (or heavy cream), powdered sugar, and vanilla extract. Cool whip just doesn’t taste as good! Also, you will definitely need to use an electric mixer to whip the cream.
- Chocolate Chips – Raspberries and chocolate is just such a good combo, I like to sprinkle a few chocolate chips on top of each pie slice. If you don’t have chocolate chips, then just leave them out.
Homemade Oreo Pie Crust
The base of this Raspberry Cream Pie is an Oreo Crust. You can buy a pre-made Oreo crust, or you can make your own. Check out our recipe for homemade Oreo pie crust. Oreo pie crusts are easy to make and they only use three ingredients – Oreos, butter, and salt. Crush the Oreos, including the cream, into fine crumbs using a blender or a food processor. Pour melted butter and salt over crumbs and mix. Then, press the mixture into a 9-inch pie plate. Make sure there are no cracks. Then, bake in the oven at 350 degrees F for 12 minutes.
Why I Love This Pie
I first tried a pie like this at a local pie shop in Couer d’Alene, Idaho. I loved the fresh raspberries and the tangy creaminess of the cream cheese mixture. When I started looking for raspberry cream pie recipes I found a lot of recipes with ingredients I knew weren’t right. Cornstarch, raspberry yogurt, pudding mix, sour cream, raspberry jam, raspberry pie filling, raspberry ice cream topping, cool whip – all the wrong taste and texture. I knew it had to be fresh raspberries, cream cheese, and homemade whipped cream. So, in the end I had to start from scratch. I tried a few iterations and this combination turned out just right! I know you’re going to love it.
