Raspberry Cream Cheese Pie With Chocolate Ganache


Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 45 minutes
Total Time 1 hour

Ingredients

Oreo Crust:

  • 25 Oreo Cookies, crushed to fine crumbs
  • 4 tablespoons butter, melted

Cream Cheese Filling:

  • 12 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs, at room temperature
  • 1 cup fresh raspberries

Chocolate Ganache:

  • 2 oz. semi sweet chocolate chips
  • 2 oz. milk chocolate chips
  • ½ cup heavy cream

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Combine the Oreo crumbs and melted butter in a small bowl, mix until well combined. Press into a 9-inch pie plate. Bake for 8 minutes. Let cool for about 15 minutes.
  3. While crust is cooling, make the filling by combining the cream cheese, granulated sugar, and vanilla, mix on medium speed until smooth. Add eggs and mix until just incorporated.
  4. Evenly spread the fresh raspberries into the bottom of the cooled Oreo crust.
  5. Pour the filling into the cooled crust and bake until set, 40-45 minutes (or longer, depending on your oven). The pie should be set except for the very, very center will still "jiggle" slightly). Let pie cool to room temperature, then spread ganache over the top and refrigerate until cold, at least 4 to 5 hours or overnight is even better.

  6. Slice into pieces and enjoy. Keep stored in refrigerator.
  7. To make the ganache: Place the chocolate chips in a medium bowl. Heat the whipping cream in a small sauce pan until just simmering (you'll want small bubbles along the edge of the pan). Remove from heat and pour over chocolate chips. Let sit for a minute or two and then stir until smooth and glossy.

Recipe Notes

You can use all milk chocolate or all semi-sweet if you prefer. I like the combination of the two together.
