Raspberry Cheesecake Dessert

This is one of my family’s favorite desserts.  I have modified it from the original recipe my mom had.  We usually make this on holidays or special occasions.


  • 1 1/2 cups finely ground shortbread cookie crumbs (you could also use graham crackers and the original recipe calls for pretzels)
  • 3 tblsp white sugar (optional, I think it is sweet enough without it)
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 (8oz) package of cream cheese
  • 1 cup Whipped Topping
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 small package raspberry jello
  • 8 oz frozen raspberries

Crust Directions

  1. Mix shortbread crumbs, sugar, and melted butter or margarine, until well blended . Press mixture into an 8 or 9 inch pie plate.

Filling Directions

  1. With a hand mixer, mix the cream cheese, whipped topping and powdered sugar until well blended.
  2. Spoon mixture onto the crumb crust.

Topping Directions

  1. Boil one cup water and add the contents of the jello package.  Stir until dissolved.  Let cool to room temperature, but do not let gel.
  2. Place the frozen raspberries evenly across the top of the cream cheese mixture.
  3. Pour the liquid jello on top of the raspberries.  Refrigerate until the jello is set.
  4. Serve
