Raspberry Cream Cheese Pie Ingredients

Raspberry Cream Cheese Pie raw ingredients that are labeled

You’ll need:

For the Filling

  • 1 pre-baked pie crust (store-bought or the homemade pie crust recipe from our site)
  • 12 ounces of cream cheese softened to room temperature
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2¼ teaspoons unflavored gelatin (like Knox brand – 1 (0.25-ounce) packet)
  • ½ cup cold water
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream

For the Topping

  • 1 pound fresh raspberries, washed and dried
  • ½ cup seedless raspberry jam/jelly
  • 2 tablespoons cold water
  • 2¼ teaspoons unflavored gelatin (like Knox brand – 1 (0.25-ounce) packet)

PRO TIP:

Unflavored gelatin can be easily found in the ‘Jello’ section of your local grocery store. You can also use INSTANT Clearjel instead of gelatin. Just follow the package instructions.

SUBSTITUTIONS AND ADDITIONS

JAM: If you can’t find seedless raspberry jam, a jam with seeds will work fine. All you need to do is heat the jam until pourable and then pour it through a mesh sieve to remove the seeds.

CRUST: If you want to make this a completely no-bake raspberry cream cheese pie, you can use graham crackers to make our pre-made graham cracker crust instead of a traditional pie crust. It is a great alternative and eliminates the need for an oven, making it a great summertime dessert.

How to Make This Raspberry Cream Cheese Pie Recipe

For the Filling

STEP ONE: In a small bowl, combine the water and gelatin. Gently swirl the gelatin around, making sure that it is completely absorbed by the water. Set aside.

STEP TWO: In a medium-sized mixing bowl, use an electric mixer on medium-high speed to whip the heavy cream until stiff peaks form. Set aside.

STEP THREE: In another medium bowl, use a hand mixer on medium-high speed to blend the cream cheese until smooth and fluffy.

OUR RECIPE DEVELOPER SAYS

Make sure your cream cheese is room temperature, or you will end up with lumps in the cream cheese filling.

STEP FOUR: Add the powdered sugar and vanilla extract and continue mixing for 1½ to 2 minutes or until no lumps remain. Start your mixer on low, then work up to medium-high speed.

STEP FIVE: Heat the bowl with the gelatin and water mixture in the microwave for 20 to 30 seconds. Give it a good stir, making sure that there are no lumps remaining. While your mixer is on low speed, pour the warm gelatin into the bowl of the cream cheese mixture. Mix on low for 1 to 2 minutes or until completely combined.

STEP SIX: Gently fold the whipped heavy cream into the cream cheese mixture just until everything is evenly incorporated.

STEP SEVEN: Spread the cream cheese mixture evenly into the pre-baked pie crust. Refrigerate the cream cheese pie filling while you prepare the raspberry topping.

For the Topping

STEP ONE: Prepare your fresh raspberries by rinsing them in cool water and then patting them completely dry. Set out on a dish towel or paper towels to dry.

STEP TWO: Add the water and unflavored gelatin to a small bowl. Gently swirl to make sure that all the gelatin is mixed with the water. Let it sit for about 2 to 3 minutes to thicken.

STEP THREE: In a microwave-safe bowl, heat the seedless raspberry jam in the microwave on high for 30 to 45 seconds. Whisk until the jam is smooth and pourable.

STEP FOUR: Add the gelatin mixture to the warm jam and whisk again until it is completely incorporated and no lumps remain.

STEP FIVE: Pour the jam mixture over the berries and gently combine, making sure that all the berries are coated.

STEP SIX: Remove the pie from the refrigerator. Use a slotted spoon to spoon the berry mixture gently over the cream cheese layer, being careful not to get too much extra liquid on the pie.

STEP SEVEN: Place the whole pie back in the refrigerator to chill and set for at least 5 hours or up to overnight. 

PRO TIP:

The pie needs plenty of time to chill in order for the gelatin in the filling and the raspberry layer to set properly. Once set, you are rewarded with a smooth and well-formed pie that holds together beautifully when sliced and served.

STEP EIGHT: Slice the pie and serve. Top with whipped cream for serving, if desired.

PRO TIP:

Whip 1 cup of heavy cream plus ¼ cup powdered sugar until stiff peaks form and pipe with a decorating bag and tip or simply dollop on top of the pie just before serving.

Storage

IN THE FRIDGE: Store any leftovers of this raspberry cheesecake pie in the refrigerator for 3 to 4 days, lightly covered with plastic wrap.
