I have an incredible raspberry pie recipe for you to make for Valentine's Day!

It's completely no-bake, so easy to whip up, and packed full of tart raspberry flavor.

Instead of using fresh raspberries, I opted for a bag of frozen raspberries. Once thawed they become incredibly juicy. This means there will be an abundant amount of puree to flavor the creamy no-bake filling.

Heavy cream is whipped with powdered sugar to create a light and airy base for the raspberry mousse filling. It is pure decadence and so fitting for a Valentine's Day dessert.

There is a small amount of gelatin in the filling to prevent it from breaking down. Otherwise, the water from the raspberries will cause filling to separate. The gelatin just ensures this doesn't happen and the pie will hold up for several days stored in the refrigerator.

I opted to use a no-bake graham cracker pie crust but I imagine an Oreo crust would also be delicious. You could also sub in gluten-free cookies to make this recipe gluten-free if needed.

The result is a cool, creamy raspberry mousse nestled inside a buttery graham cracker crust. Serve it with whipped cream and prepare to swoon.

How to make raspberry pie

This raspberry mousse pie is made with frozen raspberries. This is helpful when raspberries are out of season. I haven't made the pie with fresh raspberries so I'm unsure how much you'd need in order to get the recipe right.

The filling: The filling is so simple to make. Pureed raspberries are combined with a small amount of gelatin. This gets mixed into whipped cream with powdered sugar to create a silky mousse filling.

The crust: The crust is nothing more than graham cracker crumbs combined with melted butter. It gets pressed into a 9-inch pie dish and frozen until it's set.


Ingredients

The ingredient list for no-bake raspberry pie is quite short. You only need a handful of items to make the recipe.

  • Graham cracker pie crust: Graham cracker crumbs and butter are used for the crust. You can opt for Oreos or gluten-free cookie instead of graham crackers.
  • Gelatin: Unflavored gelatin powder is used to keep the filling stable.
  • Heavy cream: Use heavy cream or heavy whipping cream. They are essentially the same thing.
  • Powdered sugar: Don't try to substitute with granulated sugar. It won't work. Powdered sugar is a must!
  • Frozen raspberries: An entire 12-ounce bag of frozen and thawed raspberries is needed.
  • Whipped cream: I prefer to serve the pie with whipped cream but a chocolate drizzle would be excellent also.

Equipment

To make this pie you'll need:

  • 9-inch pie pan: I like this deep pie plate*. It's slightly larger than 9-inches and will hold all the filling.
  • Mixing bowls: These Pyrex glass bowls* are my favorite. I use them regularly.
  • Mixer: You can use a stand mixer* or hand-held electric mixer* to whip the cream.
  • Fine-mesh sieve: You need a sieve* in order to separate the seeds from the puree.

Recipe tips and tricks

This raspberry pie is completely no-bake. A no-bake graham cracker crust can be crumbly, making it difficult to get neat pie slices.

You may wish to bake the crust instead. If so, stir 2 tablespoons of sugar into the graham cracker mixer. Press it into the pie dish and bake for 10 minutes at 350°F. Cool to room temperature then refrigerate while you make the filling.
