Layered Raspberry Pie with a Chocolate Crust

This delicious raspberry pie combines the flavors of raspberries, vanilla and chocolate for a delicious pie recipe. The chocolate crust is a simple combination of chocolate graham cracker crumbs and melted butter. For a cup and a half of graham cracker crumbs, you will need to process about eleven graham crackers in a food processor with a metal blade or put the crackers in a plastic bag and crush them using a rolling pin.

The next layer in this tasty raspberry pie recipe is a creamy raspberry sorbet and Cool Whip combination. On top of that is a layer of vanilla pudding, fresh raspberries and more Cool Whip. You can use thawed or frozen raspberries if you prefer, or even canned raspberries, as long as you drain them well. The raspberries give this gelatin pie a delicious and appetizing pink color. You could always use strawberries or blackberries if you prefer, and if you do this, you might like to use strawberry or blackberry sorbet, or strawberry ice cream, instead of the raspberry sorbet. Ice cream will make a creamier pie.

Because this raspberry cream pie contains sorbet, you will need to freeze it well to set it, and then keep it in the freezer. This fresh raspberry pie is a wonderfully light and refreshing dessert, like most raspberry pie recipes are, and the combination of vanilla and raspberries is a heavenly one. This is one of the most delicious dessert recipes ever.
