Raspberry-White Chocolate Icebox Pie

It’s been a bit of an unofficial chilled dessert week here at BoB. There’s been cheesecake, ice cream cake, and now an icebox pie. What can I say? Summer practically demands these kinds of desserts!

The no-bake filling is a sweet, creamy combination of white chocolate and cream cheese. Add to that a swirl of fresh raspberries, put it all in a vanilla wafer crust, and you’ve got a sure crowd-pleaser for your summer gatherings.

Fresh raspberries, white chocolate, and cream cheese make for a summer-perfect dessert!

This is the kind of recipe I call “low-bake.” It’s so close to being no-bake, but it’s not quite there. The filling doesn’t require baking, but the crust will benefit from a short oven stint.

I went with what I call a “rustic swirl” of raspberries for the pie. It makes for a bumpy, swirly top that I really love. If you’re not up for the swirling, you can just add the raspberry purée to the filling and mix it all together for a pretty pink pie.

This recipe was originally developed in my continuing collaboration with Go Bold with Butter. To see the recipe, click here.

      I don’t usually bake with maraschino cherries, but I suppose they might work if you drained them well. If you have access to frozen berries of some type, I think that would be a better choice.

      I would think a better option than maraschino cherries would be some of the canned ones that all groceries seem to have or frozen berries that surely are available. I am lucky to have not only available raspberries in my area BUT in my own yard though they are at the end now and no longer in production. But we have farms and orchards that do still have production and a great farmers’ market system in the Portland Oregon area. Hopefully you can use some frozen options or canned options vs. those maraschino cherries (though an interesting note about those…I think nearly all of them are made from our local cherries which are excellent cherries).

  2. “Low-bake” one of my favorite kinds of desserts to make. This looks absolutely perfect!!

  3. This sounds so appealing, everything about it, from the flavors to the colors just screams REFRESHING :)

  4. Hahaha low bake I like it. Better than high bake in this heat! I actually have a bunch of raspberries that I need to use up. Picked them last week and totally forgot about them. I picked so much fruit I lost track!

    I can handle low-bake if it means I get this pie after turning the oven on!
