Wow Your Guests with ‘The Pioneer Woman’ Ree Drummond’s Raspberry Cream Pie
If you’re in the mood for pie, this treat from The Pioneer Woman star Ree Drumond is sure to hit the spot. It’s made with raspberries and cream; how could you go wrong? Here’s Ree Drummond’s raspberry cream pie recipe.
- Total prep time: 2 hours, 45 minutes
- Makes 12 servings
- 25 chocolate sandwich cookies, such as Oreos, plus chocolate sandwich cookie crumbs, for serving
- 4 tablespoons butter, melted
- 1 generous cup raspberries, plus more for serving
- 3 tablespoons sugar
- Two 6-ounce containers raspberry yogurt
- One 3.4-ounce package instant vanilla pudding mix
- 1 cup heavy cream
- Whipped cream, for serving
1. Preheat the oven to 350° F.
2. To make the crust, crush the cookies in a food processor (or smash in a zip-top bag with a rolling pin). Stir in the melted butter until combined. Pour into a regular pie pan and press the crumbs all over the pan and up the sides. Bake just long enough for it to set, 3 to 4 minutes. Let cool completely.
3. Put the raspberries on a plate or in an empty pan. Smash them with a fork, then sprinkle on the sugar. Stir together and allow to sit for 15 minutes.
4. In the bowl of an electric mixer, combine the raspberry yogurt with the instant vanilla pudding mix (just the powder itself). Beat on low until combined, about 1 minute. Pour in the heavy cream and whip on low for 30 seconds. Stop the mixer and scrape down the bowl with a rubber spatula. Turn the mixer on medium-high speed and beat until thick, about 2 minutes.
5. Turn off the mixer, then fold in the raspberries until just combined. Pour into the cooled crust and spread evenly. Freeze until very firm, about 2 hours. Cut into slices and top each slice with cookie crumbs, dollops of whipped cream and extra raspberries.

Fans react to Ree Drummond’s Raspberry Cream Pie recipe
Fans loved Drummond’s recipe. They took to the comments section on the Food Network blog to share their thoughts. One viewer said she decided to swap out the raspberries with strawberries instead:
This pie is super delicious. I used strawberry yogurt and fresh strawberries instead of the raspberries, and I bought the chocolate crust already made as I thought the cookie crust from Oreos would have been too sweet. It does not set well at all in the refrigerator, but it only lasted two days in my house so that didn’t really matter. We’ll definitely make again.
Many of Drummond’s fans noted how easy this pie is to make. “Easy and delish. I’m trying blueberry next. I’m legally blind so cooking is quite tricky. I like Ree’s recipes a lot. Like I said, easy and delish,” wrote one fan. If you have a strong sweet tooth, you’ll like this pie. If not, you might want to adjust the recipe, as some fans said this dessert was a bit on the sweet side.
