1 (9x13-inch) pan


  • 1 ½ cups graham cracker crumbs

  • ½ cup brown sugar

  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • ½ cup butter, melted

  • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened

  • ¼ cup confectioners' sugar

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1 (3 ounce) package raspberry-flavored gelatin mix (such as Jell-O)

  • 1 cup boiling water

  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice

  • 2 cups frozen raspberries

  • 1 (8 ounce) container frozen whipped topping, thawed


  1. Combine graham cracker crumbs, brown sugar, and cinnamon in a bowl; stir in melted butter. Set aside 1/2 cup graham cracker mixture; press remaining mixture into a 9x13-inch dish. Chill crust until firm, about 30 minutes.

  2. Beat cream cheese, confectioners' sugar, and vanilla together in a bowl until soft and fluffy. Spread cream cheese mixture over graham cracker crust and chill until firm, about 30 more minutes.

  3. Whisk raspberry gelatin and boiling water together in a separate large bowl until gelatin has dissolved; stir in lemon juice. Gently fold frozen raspberries into warm gelatin; cold raspberries will cause gelatin to begin to set. Spread raspberry mixture over cream cheese layer in the pan.

  4. Spread whipped topping over raspberries and sprinkle with reserved crumb topping. Chill for at least 2 more hours.
