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.

Baby Reds & Baby Greens Salad with Roasted Garlic Basil Dressing

Well this is a day I didn’t think would ever come. I’m sharing a salad recipe. On my baking blog.

I wasn’t sure where you guys would want to see something like this, but I took the vote to Instagram and everyone said they wanted to see it! And because I’ve probably eaten this salad about 3 nights a week for dinner for the past month, I thought it was definitely worthy of a share.

This salad is a total copy cat of a salad called the Baby Reds & Baby Greens Salad from Naked Cafe in Solana Beach, CA. I changed a few things up from the original, but this salad was definitely inspired by that one. It’s literally always one of the first things I want to eat when I come home from school for a break. I went to go get it the first day I was home from being abroad! In N Out Burger was my first meal out when I was home, and going to get this salad was the second. If that doesn’t say how much I love it – I don’t know what does. [Read more...]

Dark Chocolate Coconut Almond Butter from Bakerita.com | #paleo #glutenfree #vegan #recipe

Dark Chocolate Coconut Almond Butter (GF, Paleo, Vegan)

Dark Chocolate Coconut Almond Butter from Bakerita.com | #paleo #glutenfree #vegan #recipe

Let me start by saying that this full jar of dark chocolate coconut almond butter was finished in about a week flat. I ate this stuff like, 3 times a day on everything from toast to apples to a spoon. It’s so wonderfully addictive, and I can’t promise it’s going to last long in your house!

I’m a nut butter addict, and while I used to be allllll about peanut butter (evident by the 25 peanut butter recipes you can find in my recipe index), I think I’m slowly but surely converting to almond butter for most things that use nut butters. And I absolutely LOVE creating new flavors of almond butters. This one is definitely my favorite that I’ve made so far. It’s pure heaven for a chocolate and coconut lover like me. [Read more...]

Paleo Magic Cookie Bars from Bakerita.com

Paleo Magic Cookie Bars

Paleo Magic Cookie Bars from Bakerita.com Let’s talk about my favorite childhood dessert for a minute: Magic Cookie Bars. Also known as Seven Layer Bars or Hello Dolly Bars, these pieces of dessert art are truly delicious and are remembered with great fondness by all who have tried them. I really don’t know that I’ve ever had someone not love them. The combination of so many delicious things thrown on top of a buttery graham cracker crust and topped with sweetened condensed milk just really can’t end up as anything but insanely delicious.

My mom and I would make batches and batches of these for Christmas, and when I was little I would constantly be sneaking outside to grab a bar (or three) out of the freezer in our garage where my mom would attempt to hide them. The main problem with these decadent little morsels? They are sooo far from the realm of healthy, and though the holidays are a time for splurging and going calorie-crazy, that’s not necessarily what I want to be doing for the remainder of the year.

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...]
