Summer No Bake Raspberry Pies

If you’re here for the patriotic party and Gwen’s awesomely delicious watermelon smoothies (with a top secret ingredient!) head on over here … I’ll wait :)

Now … there is just something about pie that reminds me of summer.  Cinnamon-y apple pies for the 4th of July, my Aunt Lori’s icebox strawberry pie for a weekend treat or a cool creamy lemon meringue for a pot luck … see?  Pie = summer!

But who wants to roll out pie crust and bake in the muggy, humid Florida heat?!  What is this pie-craving Southern girl and dessert lover to do?

You watch a little Food Network while you fold laundry and drool over the Deen family’s blackberry pie.  Thank goodness I was folding towels ;)

So, ya’ll … let’s {taste this} … summer no bake raspberry pies!!

summer no-bake raspberry pies
Yields 6 mini pies
2 – 10 oz. containers of fresh raspberries (reserve 6 for garnish) or thawed frozen berries
5 tablespoons of raspberry preserves , jam or jelly (I used sugar free, all fruit preserves)
1 small container of lite whipped topping
6 pre-made graham cracker pie crusts

Stir the raspberries and preserves together, gently breaking up the berries.  Spoon into your pie crusts just before serving (to avoid soggy crusts) and top with whipped topping and a fresh berry.  Yep!  That’s it!  Almost too easy and boy do these disappear quick!!

A no bake pie with fresh berries and whipped topping … simple summer heaven!

Using the Deen family’s recipe, I basically swapped out blackberries for raspberries and used mini graham cracker pie crusts.  Because raspberries were on sale.  And mini is always better :) Plus, you can avoid all bathing suit related guilt since these  pretty little pies are figure friendly!!

  13. Ooohhh wonder if I could do these w/ blackberries too? We’re overrun with them. Great idea!

  14. I have a confession. Reading the title of this quickly in the blog hop, I read ‘summer bake no raspberry pies’… thought is was a little silly. Anyway, looks delicious and I just happen to have raspberries in the fridge. Thanks!

  1. [...] For the topping:  using a hand  mixer on low, combine Cool Whip, pineapple (and juice) and vanilla pudding mix. Cut each cooled cupcake in half.  Place the bottom of the cupcake in a wide mouth half pint mason jar.  Spoon a layer of topping over it.  Top with the other half of the cupcake and add another layer of topping.  If you are packing these up for a get together, you can reduce the amount of topping so the lid fits on the jar or add the rest of the topping just before serving.  But if you are eating these at home, pile it high and enjoy!   Here are some of my favorite summer time desserts!
