Raspberries ~ Current Happenings Blogged ~

Today we picked about 3 gallons of raspberries at a friends house. Yummy!

I put pints zip locks in the freezer, made a raspberry dessert and put 2 quarts in the refrigerator to make 2 Chocolate Raspberry Cakes. See a previous blog for cake recipe.


Raspberry Dessert
Grind in food processor:
2 cups granola
1 cup lightly roasted walnut
Add:
1/4 cup soft butter
1/3 cup sugar
Mix and press into a 9X13" pan.


Place 6 cups raspberries in food processor with 1 1/3 cup sugar,
2 tablespoon cornstarch and 1 cup water. Pour into saucepan. While stirring, bring to boil over medium heat. Cool.

Meanwhile, place 2 - 8 oz. packages cream cheese into food processor with 1/3 cup sugar and 1 teaspoon vanilla. Mix well. Add 2/3's thickened raspberry mixture and blend well. Pour into pan and spread evenly. Chill for 20 minutes. Pour remaining raspberry mixture over top. Chill for 1 hour or more and serve.

This is an easy, rich, fresh and delicious dessert. A great reward for all the pickers. Kera, our oldest daughter, suggested making it with apricots and almonds.

You always have the most excellent recipes, do you think this one would work with blackberries and a gramcracker crust?

Most definately! Let me know how it tastes. I also think it would be wonderful with strawberries. Also any frozen fruit would also work.
Yes, on the graham cracker crust too.
