Black Raspberry Cream Pie...

An easy summer pie that delivers a powerful taste of fresh fruit!  Top with a dollop of whipped cream and you have a perfect ending to any dinner. 

The recipe I received through the Better Homes & Gardens newsletter takes no time at all to prepare, freeze until firm and serve it up!

Black Raspberry Cream Pie

9- inch graham cracker pie shell

1 egg white, beaten

1 Cup whipping cream

8 oz pkg. cream cheese softened

10 oz jar of black raspberry spread

Fresh black raspberries, lemon peel twist and/or mint leaves (optional)

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Brush pie shell with beaten egg white. Bake for 5 minutes. Cool on a wire rack

2. In a medium mixing bowl beat whipping cream with an electric mixer on medium-high speed until soft peals form, set aside.

3. In a large mixing bowl beat cream cheese with an electric mixer on medium-high speed until smooth. Add the fruit spread. Beat on the low speed until combined. Fold in whipping cream. Spoon mixture into pie shell. Cover and freeze for 4 to 24 hours or until firm. Garnish with the fresh black raspberries, lemon peel, and/or mint. Makes 8 servings.

I used fresh blackberries for garnish and they went very well with the taste of the pie!

Be prepared to be WOWED !!!

What a beautiful color and, from reading over the ingredients, it must taste wonderful and refreshing on a hot, summer day!

Bravo, Barb!

Barb-This is beautiful! I have never been a real raspberry fan--I wonder if I could substitute blackberry spread. The picture just makes me want to try it in some form!

Suzy said...

I'm definitely trying this with blackberry. I bet it would work with just about any fruit spread/jam. Yum Yum Yum

Suzy said...

I just couldn't help myself..I went and whipped one up and its in the freezer now. I cheated on a couple of levels..gtaham cracker crust and coolwhip, but it will still be good. I know because I licked the spoon!

Cynthia said...

Ohhhh, Barb ... what an amazing looking and sounding pie. I am WOWED. It's on my list to make soon. :)

Barbara said...

That color is marvelous! What a super recipe! I'm making this on Saturday. I love frozen pies and have a raspberry one very similar. Never thought to use blackberries in it.
