While he was growing up, this was my husband's favorite Christmas dessert. When we married, his mother passed it on to me. I take it to family gatherings during the holidays and have yet had any to bring home! It's a cool recipe for summer as well. —Victoria Newman, Antelope, California

  • Dough for single-crust deep-dish pie
  • 6 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
  • Dash salt
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream, whipped
  • 1 package (3 ounces) raspberry gelatin
  • 1-1/4 cups boiling water
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 package (10 ounces) frozen raspberries in syrup, thawed


  1. On a lightly floured surface, roll dough to a 1/8-in.-thick circle; transfer to a 9-in. deep-dish pie plate. Trim to 1/2 in. beyond rim of plate; flute edge. Refrigerate 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 425°.
  2. Line crust with a double thickness of foil. Fill with pie weights, dried beans or uncooked rice. Bake on a lower oven rack until edge is golden brown, 20-25 minutes. Remove foil and weights; bake until bottom is golden brown, 3-6 minutes longer. Cool on a wire rack.
  3. In a large bowl, beat cream cheese, sugar and salt until smooth. Fold in cream. Spread half into crust. Refrigerate 30 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, dissolve gelatin in boiling water; add lemon juice and raspberries. Carefully spoon half over cream cheese layer. Set aside the remaining gelatin mixture at room temperature. Refrigerate pie until set, about 30 minutes.
  5. Carefully spread remaining cream cheese mixture over top of pie. Refrigerate 30 minutes. Top with remaining gelatin. Refrigerate until set.
