Raspberry Cream Cheese Bites

Raspberry Cream Cheese Bites are a delicious raspberry dessert recipe stuffed with a cheesecake filling, and a homemade raspberry sauce using fresh raspberries, baked until golden and dusted with powdered sugar.

If you love the fruity, sweet, and tangy flavor of pastries with fruit and cream cheese fillings, then you’ll adore these little bites. I started making these a few years ago and they are a family favorite. They’re a sort of quasi-pastry, and they’re as easy as they are delicious. That’s the combo that sold me. I love to make these for parties, as fun desserts for dinner, or simply because I have a taste for them. They’re so easy and delicious, there’s no reason not to make them, and I know that once you give them a try, you’ll feel the same way.

These delicious bites start with a ready-made pie crust. Then, it gets filled with a sweet raspberry sauce and a rich, sweet, and tangy cream cheese filling. I roll the little coated pie pieces up into bite-size crescents and bake them to golden perfection. When it’s all said and done, I have delicious little pastry-adjacent bites that are as delicious as they are easy to make They’re so good, in fact, that I never have leftovers!

FAQ
CAN YOU MAKE RASPBERRY CREAM CHEESE BITES IN ADVANCE?

These little pastries can be refrigerated after being baked, but they taste best when served just after they’ve cooled. I don’t recommend baking them in advance.

CAN YOU FREEZE THESE BITES?

Yes, you can. They’ll last in the freezer for up to a month.
