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.
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.

Hi! I always follow your post and this one catch my eye because this weekend I have some friends over for dinner, but where I live is imposible to find raspberrys at all, so my question is, can I use caned cherriees ( like marrasquino)??
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).
“Low-bake” one of my favorite kinds of desserts to make. This looks absolutely perfect!!
This sounds so appealing, everything about it, from the flavors to the colors just screams REFRESHING 🙂
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!
Oh I love the raspberry white chocolate combination as well as the rustic swirl! Low bake is good for me!! I have to pin this one!
I can handle low-bake if it means I get this pie after turning the oven on!
Hello, Quick question. Do you think this pie could hold up well if frozen ahead of time then thawed the day of use? I want to make this pie for a party but it is about a 40 minute drive away and I don’t want it falling apart or melting.
Hi, Tiffany! I’ve not tried freezing it, but I think it will be fine to do that.
Can I just say… You’re a life saver! I have a little BnB and I always serve a little dessert the evening of check in. That said, it’s starting to get warm and I just wanted something quick, easy, budget friendly and something I didnt have to turn the oven on for!
Love the recipes! Going to try several!
I’m glad you liked it, Stephanie!
I made this pie yesterday for Easter and it is wonderful! I did take a few shortcuts…..instead of making the crust and using a tart pan, I used a pre-made vanilla wafer crust…..used Cool Whip instead of whipping heavy cream…..and instead of putting the berries in the blender, I cooked them down a bit and made a sauce and strained out the seeds. This was the last thing I prepared so I was getting tired but I think the shortcuts did not alter the pie in terms of taste. I’ll be making this one again!
Glad you liked it!
Another great one; hope it’s as good as caramel. Did you use a high quality white chocolate bar or mini chocolate chips.
I use whichever I happen to have in my kitchen, and they both work fine. I just make sure that it’s labeled white chocolate and not white baking bar/chips.
