  • In a small bowl, combine the cracker crumbs, butter, and sugar. Press onto bottom of an 11 x 7 dish coated with cooking spray. Cover and refrigerate for at least 15 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, for filling, in a small heavy saucepan, combine the egg yolks, 1/4 cup water, 1/2 cup sugar, and salt. Cook and stir over low heat until mixture reaches 160 degrees or is thick enough to coat the back of a metal spoon. Cool quickly by placing pan in a bowl of ice water; stir for 2 minutes. Set aside.
  • In a small heavy saucepan over low heat combine the egg whites, cream of tartar, and remaining water and sugar. With a portable mixer, beat on low speed until mixture reaches 160 degrees. Transfer to a small mixing bowl and beat on high until soft peaks form.
  • In large mixing bowl beat cream cheese until smooth, gradually beat in the egg yolk mixture. Fold in whipped topping, then egg white mixture.
  • Drain raspberries, reserving 3 tablespoons of juice. In a small bowl, crush half of the berries with 1 tablespoon of juice. Set remaining berries and juice aside.
  • Spread a third of the cream cheese mixture over crust; spoon half of the crushed raspberry mixture over the top. Repeat layers. Cut through with knife to swirl raspberries.
  • Top with remaining cream cheese mixture. Sprinkle reserved berries and drizzle with remaining juice. Cover and freeze for 5 hours or until firm. Remove from freezer 15 minutes before cutting.
