Raspberry White Chocolate Cheesecake Pie

No-Bake White Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake Pie | from Bakerita.com Baking during the summer can be torturous, depending on what part of the country you live in. When it’s 85+ degrees, and you don’t have air conditioning, and your house feels like a sweatbox, the LAST thing on the whole planet that you want to do is turn your oven on to make the conditions even worse. But sometimes, you just have to have some baked goods. Enter: no-bake goodies.

I’m such a fan of no-bake goodies, because they usually come together quickly and either get stuck into the fridge or freezer to set for a bit, and then voila: baked goods, minus the baking. I even have a No-Bake Treats Pinboard dedicated to such things.

No-Bake White Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake Pie | from Bakerita.com  One of my favorite no-bake treats is this No-Bake Snickers Pie (that a whole lot of you seem to love as well!), and another one is this Chocolate Peanut Butter Mousse Pie. They’re both creamy, rich, and sooo delicious – so I took inspiration from them, but gave a fruity, more summery twist.

This Raspberry White Chocolate Cheesecake Pie really is so easy, but looks super duper impressive and it seems like you spent hours on it. Trust me: I didn’t. This came together in no more than 15 minutes. That’s seriously my kind of recipe.

No-Bake White Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake Pie | from Bakerita.com I started with a pre-made graham cracker crust. You can make one from scratch, but usually they require baking, and my oven was soo not coming on for this recipe. I spread a little white chocolate on the bottom of the crust, and then smooshed some raspberries on top of that (technical, I know). The filling is cream cheese, Cool Whip, powdered sugar, and white chocolate (omg), and those just get all whipped together in a stand mixer (or with a hand mixer, if that’s your jam). You could add some raspberries into the filling too if you wanted to make the raspberry even more prevalent.

That lucious filling gets spread all over your crust, and then topped with fresh raspberries and drizzled with white chocolate. The white chocolate drizzle is optional, but it’s so easy and looks so pretty that why would you not? It makes it way more impressive.

See?! Totally easy. Totally summery. Absolutely perfect for those days when you need to stuff some baked goodness in your mouth, but can’t even bear to turn the oven on (or just want baked goods, ASAP). Also: strawberries would be magical if you’re not a raspberry person.

Moral of the story: you’ll probably be really happy if you end up trying this recipe, so you should try it. I hope you love it!! Enjoy, xoxo.

Berry Tart with Brown Butter Shortbread Crust, decorated for the Fourth of July! | from Bakerita.com

Berry Tart with Brown Butter Shortbread Crust

Berry Tart with Brown Butter Shortbread Crust, decorated for the Fourth of July! | from Bakerita.com It’s July! This is crazy. How has so much time passed?? I can’t believe things are already getting patriotic once again, and red, white and blue everything is already back covering my Pinboards. People are so darn creative with these things, I always have a hard time thinking of a recipe to throw into the ring! I’m so terrible about getting up holiday-relevant posts in time, but I worked extra hard to make sure that I got a Fourth of July post up for you guys. And it’s a GOOD one too.

This crust isn’t new to Bakerita.com, but it’s definitely a throwback to the early days. This Browned Butter Dulce De Leche Tart isn’t photographed the most beautifully, but it tastes amazing. This crust recipe (which actually used to be a cookie recipe when I first found it) makes everything it touches turn into gold…not really, but you know, close. It’s rich and buttery (as all things with brown butter are), and it stays wonderfully crunchy and flavorful under the whipped cream and berries. [Read more...]

This is my 200th Bakerita post!!!!

I literally didn’t realize it until just now when I noticed “199″ under published. It’s so crazy to think that I’ve been doing this so long, and that I’ve baked, written, photographed, and posted 200 different things on here! It sort of seems like a ton and not even that many all at the same time, but I know I’m going to keep on posting for a while :)

So to celebrate 200, I just so happen to be sharing a cake! My uncle’s birthday cake, actually, which is a delicious, chocolatey, amazing banana cake. I know…I sort of just shared a healthy banana cake that’s gluten free and Paleo, but this one is full of gluten (though you could totally use an AP GF flour) and I wouldn’t exactly call it healthy. But I would call it delicious. This flavor combination was requested by the birthday boy, and it was a darn delicious one! [Read more...]

Banana Cake with Chocolate Ganache | #paleo, #glutenfree, #vegan | from Bakerita.com

Banana Cake with Chocolate Ganache (GF, Paleo)

Banana Cake with Chocolate Ganache | #paleo, #glutenfree, #vegan | from Bakerita.com When I first tried this cake, it was the first solid thing I had eaten in three days. I was juice cleansing to cleanse my body from the eating fest that was my study abroad experience, and on the last night, I snuck a bite of this banana cake just to ensure that it was good before bringing some to my mom. Oh my goodness, guys, I had an emotional experience. I don’t know if I was so in love with this cake because it was really that good or if it was just my mouth’s gratefulness for solid food, but I’m seriously in love with this cake.

It’s clear, looking at my recipe index that I have a major love affair with banana breads and cakes of all sorta and flavors (though usually with chocolate), so this cake definitely falls into my trend. But I got to say – it’s up there with these two banana breads as my personal favorite banana recipes on the site. You know what’s the best about all my favorite recipes as well?! They’re all healthier versions of the typical banana bread! [Read more...]

Lipton Iced Tea, always and immediately, reminds me of my mom. It brings me straight back to every single car ride of my childhood. Lipton Iced Tea, in powder form from one of those jars with the blue lid, was always sitting in the cup holder in the same big blue cup that was reserved for mom’s iced tea. That cup had stains from years of iced tea use. She would never stir the powder in enough, and I can remember taking sip of her iced tea and getting that little bit of powdered sweetness that lingered on the sides. Lipton was a staple in my house (and car), through the good times and the bad (even causing one of the bad…when my sister’s phone slid right into it).

Toasted Coconut Blueberry Banana Bread (Gluten Free, No Oil or Butter!) | from Bakerita.com #recipe #glutenfree

Toasted Coconut Blueberry Banana Bread (GF, Low Fat)

Toasted Coconut Blueberry Banana Bread (Gluten Free, No Oil or Butter!) | from Bakerita.com #recipe #glutenfree I’m utterly confused as to how the heck it is summer already, but I’m trying to fully embrace the bounties of gorgeous fruits and tropical flavors that the season allows me to incorporate into my baking. I love the berries, the stone fruits (of course, the mangos), the coconut, just the freshness that comes from summertime baking and cooking and eating. It’s debatably my favorite foodie season – that’s saying a lot. This toasted coconut blueberry banana bread encompasses a whole lot of my favorite things summertime baking!

Since I’m all about toasted coconut in and on everything, when I started thinking about ways I could jack-up one of my favorite healthy banana bread recipes for the summer time, I immediately went to toasted coconut. I also threw in blueberries to have some fresh bursts of flavor, and I loved the resulting flavor combination. If you’re not a blueberry fan (or just don’t have them on hand), replace it with chopped peaches or mango or raspberries or whatever delicious, in-season fruit you happen to have on hand! One of the great things about this recipe is how versatile the add-ins can be. [Read more...]
