When you think of a summer dessert many people’s thoughts go directly to strawberry shortcake. Growing up with a grandma that raised raspberries, we enjoyed this raspberry torte recipe. I am pretty sure each of the grandchildren has had the pleasure of eating this sweet and tart dessert.
As a tribute to my grandmother – I include the recipe for each of the grandchildren.
Finely crush 1/2 a box of vanilla wafers.
Melt 1/2 Cup of Butter
Pat into a 13×9 pan to form the crust
Beat a 1/2 of a brick of cream cheese until really fluffy
Add 3 cups of powdered sugar
Add 1/2 Cup Butter
Place over crust
Add at least 1-2 pints of raspberries on top of the powdered sugar mix.
2 Tubs of Cool Whip
Sprinkle ½ Cup crushed vanilla wafers as the topping.
