CHEESECAKE DELIGHT DESSERT

Wow! This dessert you guys, is crazy delish and best thing of all it’s so pretty. Don’t you just love pretty things? I do. Especially if it’s pretty food. This one is gorgeous. Three layers of deliciousness. Don’t let it fool you though, it’s actually much easier than it looks.

In my “normal” life (aka- not my food blogging life) I don’t make several desserts every week. I really don’t. I try and feed my kids good food and make healthy (and some health-ish) meals for dinner. Which is why I am not sure what as gotten into me lately with all these desserts and no-bake treats. Like this lemon pie, or the Oreo pie, and you can’t forget the coconut pistachio pie. That’s a lot of pies. Luckily, my husband’s co-workers love it when he brings all the extra desserts just as much as I love making them all 🙂

I think I have had summer BBQ’s, picnics, gatherings, and potlucks on the brain lately because school is almost out. I can’t believe it. I swear it was just yesterday I was crying about sending my oldest to 1st grade!

With all the gatherings and BBQ’s happening you always need a sweet, not too heavy dessert, and something that will feed the masses. This my friends is just that. The crust is a chocolate graham cracker crust, with a creamy and simple 3-ingredient cheesecake filling, and then topped off with a can of raspberry pie filling.

I topped mine with some freshly whipped cream and then I reserved some of the chocolate graham cracker crumbs and sprinkled them on top.

I whipped my own cream and then put it inside a piping bag, but you could also just use some Cool Whip and dollop it onto each piece. Or just serve it as is. Either way I know you’re going to love it.

If you’re not a fan of raspberries then try a can of cherry pie filling or strawberry. I am partial to the raspberry because raspberry desserts are one of my favorite things ever.

Ingredients
Chocolate Crust
  • 2 cups chocolate graham cracker crumbs
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, melted
Cheesecake
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 block (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
Raspberry Topping
  • 1 can (21 oz) raspberry pie filling
Instructions
  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees and spray a 9x13 baking dish lightly with cooking spray.

  2. To make the crust: Combine graham cracker crumbs, sugar, and melted butter in a mixing bowl and combine together. Pour into the prepared baking dish and press evenly into the pan. Bake for 8 minutes. Let cool completely.
  3. To make the filling: Pour heavy whipping cream into a mixing bowl. Using an electric hand-mixer, or bowl of a stand mixer, beat cream until stiff peaks form and it's thick.
  4. In another bowl, beat together the cream cheese and powdered sugar. Fold in the whipped cream. Pour it onto your graham cracker crust and gently spread out evenly over the crust.
  5. Top the cheesecake layer with the can of raspberry pie filling. Spread out evenly.
  6. Cover with saran wrap and let refrigerate for at least 6-8 hours or for best results refrigerate overnight.

Recipe Notes

I crushed a little extra graham crackers so that I could reserve some to sprinkle on top for garnish. I also whipped some additional heavy cream to pipe onto the top of each serving.

 

To crush the graham crackers, place them into a Ziploc bag and use a meat pounder or something else heavy and crush into crumbs. You could also just put the graham crackers in a food processor. 2 cups crushed is equal to about 1 1/2 sleeves of chocolate graham crackers.

 

You want to make sure the cream cheese is softened so it does not make the cheesecake lumpy. I unwrap the cream cheese, put it on a microwave-safe plate, and microwave it for about 25-30 seconds to get it nice and soft so it blends easily.

    June 23, 2017 at 1:19 pm This looks delightful and refreshing. I live in Canada and have never seen raspberry pie filling?? Do you think it would be equally good with a layer of fresh berries instead? Thank you for sharing.

      June 24, 2017 at 12:33 pm I didn't realize pie filling was an American thing. I find here by the prepared pie crusts in the baking aisle.... not sure if that helps at all. Fresh berries would be delicious on top. Or I bet there are recipes out there for homemade raspberry pie filling. It usually gets cooked on the stove top with some sugar and a little cornstarch to thicken it up.

          June 24, 2017 at 8:08 pm Oh I see :) You could use any pie filling. Strawberry, cherry, mixed berry. Any of those canned pie fillings would work. Or just fresh fruit like you mentioned, maybe cooked down with a little sugar and cornstarch. Once cooled add to the top.

      September 20, 2017 at 11:02 am There will be some because the raspberry pie filling has raspberries in it. I would suggest buying a good quality pie filling as that will be much better. I forget the name brand off the top of my head but it's the one that is in all grocery stores. Pie filling is one of those things that I suggest not buying store brands of.

    January 28, 2018 at 6:55 pm How much cool whip would you recommend? If you would beat one cup of heavy whipping cream, how much would that make, after beating?

      January 29, 2018 at 4:45 pm Anytime you beat heavy whipping cream it doubles in volume. So one cup would equal about 2 cups whipped cream. You would be just fine using an 8 ounce tub of Cool Whip. It's about 2 cups I believe. Hope that helps. Enjoy 😊

    February 9, 2018 at 2:40 pm Can you use oreo's for the crust instead of chocolate graham crackers? If so, would I need to adjust the recipe at all?

      February 11, 2018 at 10:19 pm Oreos should make a great substitute. I believe you would leave everything the same. I have not tried it so I cant be sure but I am thinking it would work just fine.

    May 12, 2018 at 7:57 pm I am a baker of all things fancy and complicated, but one day, I got a call in the morning that guests were coming over for dinner. I had just noticed this dessert on Pinterest and nervously decided to give it a try. Oh my gosh!!! It not only got rave reviews from our guests, but also my family. I've made it several times in the last few months, often using pre-made (oh my!) Oreo cookie crusts. Without fail, it's a winner with people thinking I slaved over it for hours. Thank you for this delicious, timesaving dessert recipe. Yum!!!

    August 11, 2018 at 8:20 pm I am making this now and I put it in a springform pan to make a cheesecake, my spoon-licking tells me it is delicious - I just wish I would have known to double the filling to make it more full. I still think it'll be great, maybe it is just intended for yummy bars, not a whole cheesecake:)
