Raspberry Cream Pie

OK...raspberries were on a very good sale & we needed a dessert for a bbq on Monday, so we went searching for a recipe that used fresh raspberries.  We came across this raspberry cream pie that looked absolutely wonderful & decided we'd give it a try.  We were not disappointed!  It will be perfect for some hot summer nights (if only they'd get here!!).  Cool, creamy, oreo's...PERFECT!!:)

Raspberry Cream Pie
Recipe from The Pioneer Woman, adapted by Double the Deliciousness
25 whole oreo cookies
4 tablespoons butter, melted

1 cup raspberries
3 tablespoons sugar
2 containers (6 oz. each) raspberry yogurt
1 package (3.4 oz.) instant vanilla pudding mix
1 cups heavy whipping cream

1 cup heavy whipping cream
2 tablespoons powdered sugar
1/2 cup crushed oreos
extra raspberries for garnish

For the crust, preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Crush cookies in a blender or food processor or in a baggie:).  Stir in the melted butter and mix until all combined.  Pour into a 9" pie plate and press the crumbs around the bottom and up the sides.  Bake for 3-4 minutes.  Cool completely.

For the filling, mash the raspberries on a plate with a fork & then sprinkle the sugar over the top and mix together.  Let sit for 10-15 minutes.  With an electric mixer, mix the raspberry yogurt with the pudding mix until combined, about a minute. (It looks pretty yucky during this part...don't worry it will turn out fine!!)  Pour in the heavy cream & whip until the mixture is thick, about 2 minutes.  Fold in the mashed raspberries until just combined.  Pour into the cooled pie pan & spread evenly.  Freeze for 2 hours or until firm. 

For the topping, pour the whipping cream & powdered sugar into a mixer and turn to medium and mix until stiff peaks form.  Add the crushed oreos and mix until combined. 

Now you can either top the pie right now (like I did because I was taking to a bbq) & sprinkle on some raspberries, or you can cut it into pieces and then top it with the oreo whipping cream & raspberries. 

Looks and tastes wonderful!!
