For the Raspberry Sauce:

  • 1 ¾ cups fresh raspberries
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 6 tbsp water
  • 3 tbsp cornstarch

For the Cream Cheese Filling:

  • 8 oz cream cheese, room temperature
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract


  • 1 box refrigerated pie crust, room temperature


  1. Preheat the Oven: Set your oven to 375°F. Prepare 2 baking sheets by spraying them with nonstick spray or lining them with parchment paper.
  2. Make the Raspberry Sauce: Combine raspberries and sugar in a small saucepan. In a separate bowl, mix water and cornstarch, then add to the saucepan. Cook over low heat for 5-7 minutes until the sauce thickens. Let cool.
  3. Prepare the Cream Cheese Filling: In a medium bowl, whip the cream cheese until fluffy, about 2-3 minutes. Add sugar, egg yolk, lemon juice, and vanilla. Beat for another 2 minutes.
  4. Assemble the Bites: Unroll the pie dough on a lightly floured surface. Cut into 16 slices using a pizza cutter. Spread the cream cheese mixture over each slice, then top with raspberry sauce. Roll each slice from the outer edge toward the center.
  5. Bake: Place the rolls on the prepared baking sheets. Bake for 20-22 minutes until golden brown. Allow to cool for a few minutes.

Q: How can I make the bites look more festive? A: Dust with powdered sugar or drizzle with a simple vanilla glaze before serving to add a festive touch.

Chef’s Advice

For a beautiful and professional look, use a silicone brush to lightly glaze the tops of the bites with some of the raspberry sauce before baking. This not only adds a nice shine but also enhances the raspberry flavor. Remember, the key to perfect bites is ensuring each component is prepared with care and combined with precision.

These Raspberry Cream Cheese Bites blend creamy and tangy flavors seamlessly, encased in a light, flaky pastry. They are a perfect treat for any occasion, combining the richness of cream cheese with the vibrant zest of fresh raspberries. Enjoy baking and sharing these delightful treats!
