I can’t take credit for this recipe, which is adapted from Pioneer Woman. I made only a few minor changes to the recipe which makes a refreshing summer dessert that’s equal parts sweet, tart and creamy!

The filling is a mixture cream cheese, sweetened condensed milk, instant lemon pudding, lemon zest and juice and raspberries.

To make the pie crust you’ll need a package of Lemon Oreos or similar lemon creme sandwich cookies and some melted butter. You only need 30 cookies out of the family size package of Lemon Oreos so you’ll have some left over.

The cookie crust comes together quickly using food processor. Process until the cookies are fine crumbs and then pour in your melted butter and pulse to combine.

If you don’t have a food processor, place your cookies in a plastic baggie and give them a whack with your rolling pin to take out all your frustrations ;) then mix them with your melted butter.

I’m a fan of an Oreo cookie crust so this pie had instant appeal!

See -> Mini Lemon Curd + Cream Cheese Tarts and No-Bake Chocolate Strawberry Ganache Tart.

Feel free to use a graham cracker crust or substitute another cookie or flavored Oreo if you prefer.

Not a fan of raspberries? Substitute fresh strawberries instead!

Press your cookie crumb mixture into a 10-inch pie pan that is freezer-safe. Use the bottom of a measuring cup to help press the crumbs into the bottom and sides of the pie pan. Place your pie crust into the fridge to chill while you assemble your filling.

Use a mixer to combine your filling ingredients: softened cream cheese, sweetened condensed milk lemon pudding, lemon juice and zest. To give your pie a pretty pink color, add 1 – 2 drops of pink or red food coloring to your filling. When using gel food coloring, start with 1 drop, mix and add another if desired. Fold in raspberries that have been allowed to macerate with some sugar, then pour into your pie crust.

 Allow to freeze for 4 hours or until firm. Remove from freezer for 15 – 20 minutes to allow to soften enough to slice and serve. Top and serve with whipped cream, additional raspberries and lemon zest if desired.

If you want to make ahead and keep in the freezer until needed, wrap tightly in plastic wrap after the pie has frozen solid and store in the freezer up to 2 months.

    I have never had lemon Oreos but if Oreo is in the name I am guessing it is going to taste good. Can’t wait to make and eat! Thanks for the great recipe. Have a wonderful day playing in the garden.

    Hi Mary! I love anything lemon and this sounds divine. For those who might not love raspberries, do you think blueberries or strawberries would be as tasty?

    • June 9, 2021 at 7:44 am

      Hi Kim, I think strawberries would be a delicious substitution and the pie would still be pretty-in-pink! ♥

    Mary, I can’t wait to make this pie! Thanks so much for sharing the recipe. Your pie looks both scrumptious and beautiful. It is the perfect treat for a humid summer day plus you don’t have to heat up the house by starting up the oven. We, too, are starting to soar up to the 90s with high humidity. Wishing you a most beautiful day!

    This looks pretty and yummy. Do you think they can be made as individual servings? Maybe in small tart pans ? Any suggestions would be appreciated 😊

    This pie is delicious! After I left it on the counter for15 minutes at room temperature, I cut it into serving pieces. The pieces that were left I put into individual freezer quart bags, and then back into the freezer. This way I have a treat to offer unexpected guests! Thanks for a wonderful summer recipe!

    • July 28, 2022 at 7:24 pm

      So glad it was a hit Judy! Thank you for letting me know! ♥
