Creamy Raspberry Pie

What more could you ask for during the hot days of summer? Today is National Raspberry Cream Pie Day and berries are in season and readily available. Actually you can substitute different berries in this recipe, it’s all a matter of taste! You can even use frozen berries if fresh is not an option for you. Nice easy recipe that’s quick to make and so refreshing!

  • ⅓ cup sugar
  • 1 pkg (8 oz) cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 1 teas milk
  • 1 container (8 oz) sour cream
  • 1 teas fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teas vanilla extract
  • 2 cups whipped topping
  • 1-1/2 cups fresh raspberries (if using frozen, thaw and drain before adding)
  • 1 9-inch graham cracker pie shell
  1. In a bowl, cream together the sugar, cream cheese and milk until light and fluffy.
  2. Add the sour cream, lemon juice and vanilla, blend well.
  3. Fold in the whipped topping, followed by the berries.
  4. Spoon into the pie shell and chill well before serving.


Can you tell that I’ve been on a sweet kick lately, not to mention fruit? I think it’s something to do with the weather, as it’s not conducive to be baking much of anything with the humidity and rain. Of course this recipe does not include baking, so maybe, it wouldn’t be another kitchen disaster after all! Enjoy…….

Grannies Shredded Apple Pie

I hope everyone had a wonderful Mother’s Day yesterday! Mine was great, talking to daughters and granddaughter on the phone, however my planned menu for Kenny to cook, got all out of whackie-do! I had made some biscuits and gravy the other day and I decided instead of the omelet that we should try to finish them up! That was fine, but the problem came later when I realized that I was way too full from breakfast to take on a big dinner of lamb chops and all the trimmings. Instead we ended up having some sandwiches, saving Kenny from having to cook on the grill, well at least for yesterday! He’s back on dinner duty tonight as I did thaw my chops and they need to be cooked off! I’m starting this week off a little different by giving you all the weekly food holidays, instead of trying to do one everyday, just too many desserts to try and keep up. I will do one once in awhile as today is National Apple Pie Day and we love apple pie!
