Cheesecake Tart with Fresh Raspberries (1)

There’s always room for dessert. In fact, I truly believe we should be starting our meals with dessert. Why are we saving dessert for the end when we often fill up on the appetizers and main dish? If dessert is the best part, we should enjoy if first to ensure we have room for it. Right? Makes total sense to me.

Assuming you still have room for dessert after all is said and done, what’s another slice of pie? Or in this case… tart!

A perfect dessert for all of your Fall gatherings and especially Thanksgiving. What’s Thanksgiving without dessert? I’d rather more sweets than savory dishes. That’s my sweet tooth talking. Next week I swear it could be the opposite. My sweet tooth and savory tastebuds are often battling each other.

Last week I took a special trip to our local Whole Foods with the kids to pick up everything for this special recipe. The kids were excited to see all of the bright ripe berries. We grabbed a bunch to create the ultimate cheesecake raspberry tart!

If you’re looking for the absolutely perfect dessert this Thanksgiving, look no further than this cheesecake tart with fresh raspberries, featuring fresh Driscoll’s raspberries and an all butter crust!

  • 12 oz fresh Driscoll's raspberries
  • Powdered sugar, for dusting


  • Preheat oven to 350°F.

  • Lightly grease a 14x5-inch rectangular tart pan, with removable bottom. Roll out pie crust to fit pan. Press into pan, use a fork to prick entire surface of dough. Bake for 20 minutes.

    this is a great change up from the normal Thanksgiving desserts. It’s stunning. I’d have a hard time resisitng stealing a berry!

  18. Sheila Reply

    Instead of using pie crust, could you use puff pastry ? How long would I cook the puff pastry if we can use it ?

    • Rachel

      Because this recipe was specifically written using pie crust, I do not have instructions for you if you change it to puff pastry. But, good luck!

  19. Jessica Honarvar Reply

    This cheesecake looks delicious but I must ask if you would alter the recipe in any way if you made individual tarts for people? I have little tart pans with removable bottoms and want to test this out on them!

    • Rachel

      Because this is specifically written for that pan, it would likely need some changes for multiple pans of a different size.

  20. Carol Reply

    I made this last week. Absolutely delish! I used a round tart pan. I tweeked it a bit. I omitted the powdered sugar and warmed up some natural raspberry jam, strained it to get rid of seeds and brused it over the raspberries. Took it over the top! I also used almond extract instead of vanilla. So good!

    • Rachel

      So glad to hear you enjoyed it! Love your alterations! :)

  21. Liliana Reply

    It looks delicious, sure I ll do it.
    . Tks.

    • Rachel

      Thanks, Liliana!

  22. Adria Reply

    Can I use a round tart pan?

    • Rachel

      I don’t see why not. However, you’ll need to use a small tart pan given the size the recipe is currently written for. Good luck and enjoy! :)

  23. Lisa Reply

    I used 6 min (3 /12 in) round tart pans. There was more than enough cream cheese filling. It took one store bought pie crust and the timing was about the same, just a little under for pre-baking the dough. Thanks for the great recipe!

    • Rachel

      So glad you enjoyed them, Lisa!

  24. Sandy Wentzloff Reply

    I made this but used strawberries and topped it with a trim of whipped cream. My guests loved it . Thank you for this great idea.

    • Rachel

      So glad everyone enjoyed it!

  25. Katie Reply

    Do you think if I made it ahead of time and put it in the freezer, it would still be good?

    • Rachel

      Absolutely! Just be sure to add the raspberry sauce prior to serving.

  26. Dotti timkey Reply

    Would like to use a round tart pan. What would the baking time be?

    • Rachel

      You’d have to play around with the bake time and watch it closely.

    Cheesecake Tart with Fresh Raspberries (6)
    This was a good recipe- the end result was beautiful and easy to pull off. I found the cheesecake filling a touch salty so I may pull back on the salt a little next time.

    • Rachel

      So glad you enjoyed it, Ashlynne!
