Raspberry Cupcakes

"A fabulous dessert that requires no cooking and is easy to make. Young people love this dessert and especially when the weather is warm. I found this recipe in an old cookbook and then modified to the new products that we have today to make them tastier."

  1. WOW!!! I can't stress enough how fabulous these were!! My only regret was that I only made 12! This was the best tasting and best looking dessert I ever made! The only thing I changed was adding a little much needed water to the raspberries for the topping before blending. And I added much more butter to the crust.Thanks so much for posting this! I can't wait to make this again!! Note: Don't send your husband to the store to get the ingredients...he'll get the wrong stuff!
  2. Easy and wonderful! Each guest loved it. I used all the ingredients listed with fresh raspberries and thoroughly enjoyed it. Will use it again, soon!
  3. These are so wonderful Uncle Bill. Seen this recipe posted in What's In Season...Raspberries. After reading the recipe and having just the right amount of fresh red raspberries on hand...(my favorite fruit) I had to give this a go. Fantastic. After freezing I stuck them in the fridge for a few hours to soften a bit for serving at supper time. As I didn't have fat-free products in the house, I used full-fat. Sinful..I know, but oh so good. thanks for a go-to recipe that would be great with any type of berry fruit:-) Can't wait to try this out using blueberries. DH's favorite.

I live in Burnaby, British Columbia. I am retired and have written a cookbook entitled, From Uncle Bill's Kitchen. I am a recipe developer, author, publisher, distributor and a chef. My cookbook is very unique as I have a Nutrient Analysis for each ingredient used in each recipe that shows you the values for Calories, Fat, Cholesterol and Sodium. A high-lighted bar shows the values on a per serving basis plus the Fat/Cal%. From Uncle Bill's Kitchen contains tried-and-true, tested, easy to follow reipes for both novice and experienced cooks. You'll find old Russian, Ukrainian, and other ethnic favorites, along with modern West Coast dishes. The Nutrient Analysis will please the health conscious.
