Blackberry Cheesecake Icebox Pie has a graham cracker crust and a cool and creamy filling made from fresh blackberries and blackberry preserves. Such a delicious no-bake summer dessert.
There’s nothing like a creamy, dreamy icebox pie to cool off on a hot summer day. They’re so refreshing and a welcome ending to any cookout, picnic, or bbq.
Since blackberries are in season locally this time of year. I love to use them in desserts. Scroll down to find more blackberry dessert recipes.
One bite of this Blackberry Cheesecake Icebox Pie and you’ll be hooked. This pie is made with a homemade graham cracker crust. If you are pressed for time, feel free to use a store-bought graham cracker crust.
The filling is a simple mixture of instant cheesecake pudding mix (white chocolate would work well too), whole milk, Cool Whip, mashed fresh blackberries, and blackberry preserves.
I like to decorate the edge of the pie with either fresh whipped cream of more Cool Whip. I use a disposable pastry bag and a large star tip to pipe it on. This no-bake pie tastes great frozen and can be made at least a day or two in advance.
If you don’t have fresh blackberries, you can use frozen. Raspberries, blueberries, strawberries, or peaches can be substituted for the blackberries.
