Guys! This dreamy, creamy lemon pudding pie is deliciously sweet with a yummy punch of tartness and has a completely utterly delicious buttery, lemon cookie crust with a layer of fruity raspberry jam on top. Then, the pie is topped with with plush, ripe red raspberries with fluffy whipped cream and a layering of lemon cookie crumbles.
This is beyond heaven.
ey Folks! This Luscious Red Raspberry Lemon Dream Pie is breaking through that perma-cloud hovering over our heads here in Indiana.
Enough already perma-cloud! I'm rebelling with this pie!!
Maybe this pie is the trick! When I took a bite, I heard angels sing. Not even kidding....and I'm pretty sure the sun came out. 🙂
I hope you don't mind, I've been on a lemon roll lately with mom-inspired lemon recipes, because any lemon dessert always reminds me of my mom.
And well ya know....Mother's Day is coming up, right? She's inspired me to make this Lemon-Cream Cheese Crescent Ring, these Best Lemon Bars, this Lemon Burst Poke Cake and these Kick-Ass Lemon Cream Cheese Blondies.
You can always make this without the raspberries, if you want just pure lemon joy! But, I saw these raspberries at the market and I couldn't resist. They had the most gorgeous hue of raspberry color and I love raspberries, so there ya go.
The addition of the raspberry jam is amazing in this pie. It just gives another depth of flavor to this decadent pie.
As I was saying above, if you just want to do strictly lemon, it's awesome without the berries too. I like changing it up with whatever I have on hand. If you want to add another depth of lemon loveliness to it, you can use lemon curd to the bottom layer of the pie. YUM!
Using layers of jams and curds give your pies and desserts make your desserts zing a little more! 🙂
This pie is a keeper!
It's repeatable...It's beyond heaven!

Bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes to set the crust. Remove from oven and let cool completely.Add the raspberry jam to the bottom of the pie crust and smooth it out. You can heat up the jam for a few seconds in the microwave if it's hard to spread around.Using a mixer, cream together the cream cheese and sugar until smooth. Add the milk and pudding mix, and beat until smooth. Fold in half (8 oz) of the whipped topping to the pudding mixture. Pour the lemon cream filling into the cooled oreo cookie pie shell.
