Ratings & Reviews



I served it to my family and they loved it. I'm making it again this weekend.


I made this recipe with a mix of half and half graham crumbs and chocolate cooking crumbs since that is what I had and it turned out delicious. Thought there would be some leftovers but it was sooooo good we all had seconds. An instant favourite for our family


Has anyone tried freezing this dessert?


Its great if you like tart things. The crumbs came off the pan when I tried to spread the cream cheese mixture. Next time I'll make sure the cream cheese is a lot more runny and the crumbs will be refrigerated before spreading the cream cheese mixture. I may make again with strawberries and strawberry Jello


This recipe is so easy to make. It was such a hit this past summer that I made it NUMEROUS times. It's simple to substitute the raspberries for other seasonal fruit and use corresponding Jell-O. I substituted (at different times), with strawberries, cherries, peaches and mixed berries


I made this for a family BBQ, and it was a huge hit! It was gone within minutes, and everyone wanted more. Will definitely make again.



As well as needing that extra cup of boiling water for the jello, I think only 1 cup Coolwhip on top is skimping. I will use more next time. We both enjoyed this dessert, although our favourite is still the tiramisu.


The only thing I change in this recipe was to use a chocolate crust. Everyone loved it. I,also, made it using strawberries.



Excellent recipe. Everyone loved it. I used two cups of hot water instead of one. I found one wasn't enough for three cups of frozen raspberries, mabe if the berries were fresh it would be fine.


I used strawberry jello and frozen sliced strawberries...AMAZING


Easy to make, light & cool for summer, everyone wanted seconds.


Love this dessert, when I make it I double the cream cheese filling layer. Tried making it with light cream cheese, light jello and low fat cool whip, still really good but tastes best the original way.


This recipe was delicious, my whole family loved it.I did this recipe with fresh raspberry, the only difference is that it takes more time for the Jell-O to set. I would put more boiling water, like 2 cups, because the Jell-O tasted alot and I believe in this recipe you want to taste the fresh or frozen raspberry.


We really enjoyed this as it was light and tasty. I added more boiling water - 2 cups. I think I might use fresh raspberries in the summer.


It was a big hit at the supper I took it to. I was bothered though that the raspberry/jello step did not turn out as in the picture. I question the amount of water thinking it should say 2cps as I didn't have enough liquid to mix 3cps of frozen raspberries and the jello jelled immediately as I started to stir. All I had was raspberries each coated with some jello. What did I do wrong? It still tasted marvelous and I want to try it again but with 2cps of b.water. It will be a regular when a dessert is needed even if I don't work that out. Scrupious!!


I have made this recipe several times. In fact I went into a panic when I couldn't find my recipe. Got it now. Great for a light desert.


I love the tartness. This is amazing for those who don't have a gigantic sweet tooth and easy easy easy to make. No bake!


OMG.....this is soooo good. I wasn't sure how it would turn out.....but it was amazing. Highly recommended!!!! :)


Made this dessert for an outdoor bbq--no leftovers at all! Everybody loved it! Instead of Cool Whip, I prepared 2 packages of Dream Whip. Will try strawberries instead of raspberries for a change next time.



This recipe was a hit at my house and at school I changed the frozen fruit choices and kept on making it, thank you for featuring it in your magazine it was affordable too


Excellent! It was gone in a flash! Would definitely make again and again.


Excellent dessert. Everyone loved it.


Delicious and light!!! Made many times and it gets raves every time.


Very tasty, severed it for mother's day dessert and got rave reviews! Delicious!



Delicious and super easy. I have made it using cut up frozen strawberries as well, however I did prefer raspberries. It is a hit and I have been passing on the recipe.


This is a fabulous dessert. It was really easy to make and simple to serve. All of my guests thoroughly enjoyed this dessert. It's my new party favourite.




Recipe turned out well. I used Dream Whip instead of Cool Whip - I find Cool Whip oily and gross. Also used Oreo crumbs instead of graham because that is what I had. Tip: freeze the crust for about an hour before you spread the cream cheese layer. I did that and had no problems at all spreading on the next layer. I also used a smaller dish than 13X9; just a regular casserole dish works and the pieces are thicker. Everyone liked it at Easter dinner but I have a few changes I will make next time around: double the cream cheese layer and omit the top whipped cream layer. People can add whipped topping on their own, I think the raspberry layer was good enough on its own. Definitely a keeper though!!


Although the dessert looks lovely in the photo, it is a bit more difficult than it seems. I had trouble spreading the cream cheese/sugar mixture on the crumb crust as the crust kept pulling away from the pan. There also wasn't enough cheese mixture to spread evenly in a 9x13 pan. I would suggest a smaller pan or double the cream cheese mixture. I'll try it again and let you know how it works. It still tastes great and was a hit at our Easter dinner.


I too was very frustrated by the cream cheese layer. Next time I'll read the readers comments BEFORE I make the recipe, the spreading tips would have been very helpful.


What a nice light dessert. For those that had problems spreading the cream cheese use the back of a hot spoon for spreading. I took a measuring cup and added hot water, dipped my spoon in a few times to heat it up before spreading. Make sure when you put the cream cheese on top that you spoon it in several places. It does the trick.


Delicious. My daughter made this recipe and found it very easy. It is definitely something we'll make again.


So I tried to spread the cream cheese mixture on the crust, and it wrecked the crust. I got so frustrated that I mashed everything together. Maybe next time I'll freeze the crust before trying to spread the creamcheese,and I'll let the cream cheese warm more than I did. We still ate it and it was good.


Yes you can substitute real whipping cream for Cool Whip. Keep in mind that Cool Whip is dryer than real whipping cream so it not make a soggy dessert.


GREAT easy dessert I made first time for company. Used all light ingredients to cut caliries & for a diabetic, response was excellent. However, next time, I would use 2 cups of boiling water with Jello, as it jelled right away leaving raspberries in clumps which I had to cut apart, but tasted yummy.


am loving it


Hi=does anyone know if the cool whip could be substituted with whipping cream? Or would this not blend with the cream cheese as good?? We had this at a scrapbooking party, and we were very impressed, but my friend is a real cream fanatic. lol


Easy to make and tastes refreshing. Next time I will make this in a smaller baking dish, as I found it didn't make enough of a crust for a 13x9-inch pan.


My family loved this dessert. It is so pretty, and super easy to make. I warmed the cream cheese in the microwave before blending with the cool whip and it spread beautifully.


Very easy to make and everyone loved it. I heated the cream cheese in microwave before I blended with sugar and it was easy and smooth to spread on crumb layer.


Horrible - the cream cheese layer would not stick to the graham cracker crust. What a waste of ingredients.
