Ingredients

  • 3 whole graham crackers (rectangles made of 2 squares)
  • 1-1/2 tablespoons unsalted butter melted
  • 4 tablespoons sugar divided
  • 1 package 8 ounces cream cheese, softened

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350?F. Line muffin tins with metal baking cups.

  • Pour filling into baking cups, dividing evenly. Bake for 15 minutes or until just set. Chill for 1 hour. Top with a spoonful of pie filling and a fresh raspberry
