Raspberry Swirl


This amazing frozen Raspberry Swirl recipe was given to me by a wonderful woman back in the 1970’s. It is as pretty as it is good. What a wonderful dessert for any type of function or keep it in your freezer for a delicious snack.


Ingredients for crust.

Combine graham cracker crumbs and sugar with a fork. Mix into the melted butter.

Spray a 9” x 13” freezer safe pan with cooking spray. Spread the crumb mixture evenly onto the bottom of the pan and press mixture down with your hands. Bake at 375 degrees for 8 minutes.


Ingredients for the filling

Separate the egg whites from the yolks and beat the yolks until thick.

Add cream cheese, sugar and salt to yolks and mix until combined.

Beat egg whites to stiff peaks. Fold the Cool whip into the egg whites.


Fold the egg white mixture into the cheese mixture.

In a blender crush raspberries to a pulp.

Add  half of the raspberry pulp to the cheese filling and gently swirl with a knife. Carefully pour onto the crust in the 9″ x 13″ pan trying to keep the swirl design in tact.

Place small spoonful’s of the remaining pulp all over the top. Use a knife and slide it through the raspberry pulp making a swirling design. Top with fresh raspberries.


Place pan in the freezer until frozen.

Cover and place back into the freezer until ready to serve.

    • It really is! I love it too because it goes in the freezer. That way it stays fresh days ahead of time. I can make it days before a big dinner with family and I can focus on the meal the day of dinner. Thanks!
