Cool and Creamy Raspberry Delight Recipe

I knew this cool, fruit and creamy dessert was a winner the first time I tasted it. I confirmed that fact a few summers ago when I entered the recipe in a contest at work—it won first place. Co-workers still call to request it. — Mary Olson, Albany, Oregon
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. + chilling Bake: 20 min. + cooling YIELD:12-16 servings


  • 2-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 3/4 cup cold butter, cubed
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups whipped topping
  • 2 packages (3 ounces each) raspberry gelatin
  • 2 cups boiling water
  • 2 packages (10 ounces each) frozen sweetened raspberries
  • Additional whipped topping and fresh mint, optional


  • 1. In a large bowl, combine flour and sugar; cut in butter until mixture resembles fine crumbs. Press into an ungreased 13-in. x 9-in. baking pan.
  • 2. Bake at 300° for 20-25 minutes or until set (crust will not brown). Cool on a wire rack.
  • 3. In a small bowl, beat the cream cheese, confectioners' sugar, vanilla and salt until smooth. Fold in whipped topping. Spread over crust.
  • 4. For topping, dissolve gelatin in boiling water; stir in raspberries. Chill for 20 minutes or until mixture begins to thicken. Spoon over filling. Refrigerate until set. Cut into squares; garnish with whipped topping and mint if desired. Yield: 12-16 servings.

"This was FABULOUS. I thought it might be a touch seedy from all the raspberries, but it wasn't. My mom doesn't like raspberry but this can be made with other fruits/gelatins (like strawberries)."
