Serves: 8


  • 1 roll (16.5 oz.) refrigerated sugar cookie dough, cut into ½" thick slices
  • 6 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1⁄4 cup Simple Truth Organic™ Granulated Sugar
  • 1 Simple Truth™ Natural Cage Free Grain Fed Grade A Large White Eggs
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon Simple Truth Organic™ Madagascar Vanilla Extract
  • 2 cups fresh red raspberries
  • 2 teaspoons granulated sugar
  • Simple Truth Organic™ Powdered Sugar, for sprinkling


  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Press cookie dough slices into bottom and fluted sides of a greased 11" tart pan with removable bottom. Do not prick. (Or, press onto bottom of greased 12" pizza pan.)
  • Bake for 20 minutes until light brown. Remove from oven; set aside.
  • While crust is baking, in a small bowl, beat cream cheese with an electric mixer on medium-high speed for 30 seconds. Add ¼ cup sugar, egg, lemon zest, lemon juice and vanilla; beat until combined. Pour cheese mixture over warm crust and spread evenly.
  • Arrange raspberries in a single layer on top of cheese mixture. Sprinkle raspberries with 2 teaspoons sugar. Bake for 15 to 17 minutes more or until cheese mixture is set.
  • Transfer to a wire rack; let cool for 30 minutes. Sprinkle with powdered sugar just before serving.
  • Note: Blueberries and blackberries work well for this recipe, too!
