Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Make the crust: Place cookies in the bowl of a food processor and pulse until finely ground. Transfer to a medium bowl. Add 3 tablespoons sugar and 6 tablespoons butter and mix until evenly moistened. If needed, add remaining 2 tablespoons butter. Press into bottom and 3/4 of the way up the sides of a 6-inch springform pan. Freeze while you prepare the filling.

  • Make the filling: Using a hand mixer, beat cream cheese, lemon juice, and remaining 1/3 cup sugar on medium speed until well combined, about 2 minutes. In another bowl, whip cream to soft peaks; gently fold into cream cheese mixture (do not overmix.) Pour filling over frozen crust, spreading evenly to edges. Cover with plastic wrap; freeze until set, at least 30 minutes. Transfer to refrigerator and chill until firm, at least 30 minutes and up to 1 day.

  • To serve, press half of the raspberries through a fine mesh sieve into a clean bowl to create a puree. Slice cake and serve drizzled with puree and topped with remaining berries.
