Serves: 8
Ingredients
CRUST
  • 2 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • ⅓ cup sugar
  • 6 Tablespoons butter, melted
RASPBERRY TOPPING
  • 1⅓ cups granulated sugar
  • 6 Tablespoons cornstarch
  • ⅛ teaspoon salt
  • 1½ cups water (2 cups if using fresh berries)
  • 4 Tablespoons corn syrup
  • 1 (12 ounce) bag frozen raspberries, thawed OR 1 pint fresh raspberries
CREAM CHEESE FILLING
  • 1 (4 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • ½ cup powdered sugar
  • 1 (8 ounce) container Cool Whip or frozen whipped topping, thawed
Instructions
FOR CRUST
  1. Preheat oven to 375° F. Mix together graham cracker crumbs, sugar and melted butter and press into a DEEP-DISH 9-inch pie plate. (Important that it is deep dish) Bake crust for 6 minutes. Remove from oven, set aside.
  2. FOR RASPBERRY TOPPING: Mix sugar, cornstarch, and salt together in a medium saucepan. Add ½ cup water and stir with a whisk until smooth. Add remaining water, corn syrup and raspberries. Cook over medium heat until thick. (This can take awhile so be patient.) Stir constantly. Set aside to cool.
  3. (*NOTE: Do not let this mixture boil. It takes awhile for it to thicken, but once it does it is quick to boil. Watch it closely and stir constantly.)
  4. CREAM CHEESE FILLING: With an electric hand-mixer, beat together cream cheese, powdered sugar and cool whip until smooth and combined. Spread over cooled graham cracker crust. Then spoon cooled raspberry topping over cream cheese filling. (You may not need to use it all.) Place pie in fridge to chill and set for at least 2 hours. Serve and enjoy!

  1. I’m going to make this for Thanksgiving this year, along with a Eggnog cheesecake. Love to cook for my husband and kids.

    1. Hi. Did you try it with the seedless jam? I’m just curious because I don’t like the seeds either. Thanks.

  2. I made this for Thanksgiving and it was great. My only issue was that the raspberry topping didn’t set up after cooled and was runny. Is it supposed to solidify at all? Not a morsel was left over, so everyone liked it anyway. But I was curious if I did something wrong. It also looks like you had a lot more of the topping than I did with the one recipe.

  3. Having trouble getting mine to thicken as well. I thought maybe my cornstarch might be old. Also, my raspberries turned black. The flavor seems ok, but they are not red1

    1. When I made it the color was fine, Just didn’t thicken up. I even added a couple of tablespoons of black cherry jello. It didn’t hurt the flavor any, but still didn’t help to thicken it. I’m making it again for Xmas and will use fresh cornstarch to see if it makes any difference. I’m wondering if we should let the mixture thicken before adding the raspberries?

  4. My pie filling turned out fabulous but there was way too much graham cracker crust
    for my family. I’ll cut it down next time. I did add a few extra berries since they are my
    favorite. Thanks for the recipe.

  5. Would this work with regular pie crust? I’ve got a ton of raspberries to use and I don’t like graham cracker crust.

    1. I’ve always used a flaky pie crust with this type pie. Also used a homemade
      vanilla pudding for the creamy part. Always goes fast.

  6. I wanted to let you know that my 11-year-old daughter and I adapted this recipe for a Girl Scout Cookie Bake-Off and it won First Place! We used Savannah Smiles (lemon) cookies for the crust and used frozen wild raspberries we picked last summer. Thanks for the inspiration!

  7. Holly, funny story: I grew up on a raspberry and Christmas tree farm in central Michigan in the 80s. My mother made a fabulous cream cheese bottom raspberry pie. Unfortunately she was diagnosed very with Alzheimer’s before I was mature enough to realize all that would be lost from my childhoood. She has since passed. Her name, was Holly. Seriously!! So today I was searching for a pie that was close to hers ( my mother never wrote down the recipe).
    I think this is it! The photos look like my childhood. I’ll be making it next weekend!
    PS: my dad’s name was Carol. They were married a week before Christmas 1959. They didn’t buy the raspberry and Christmas tree farm until the early 70’s. Dad declared it was perfect for them ❤️

    1. I always make two pies due to the fact I always have extra raspberry topping. I just by two prepared graham craker crusts, two cool whips and cream chesse so doubling everything but the raspberry part, and give one away, always appreciated!
