UGH I hate really hot days because everyone just seems so grouchy. The kids can’t go out and play because it is just way too hot and they hate being cooped up in the house. Today it was even really hot in the house so I decided to make a cool treat. This frozen raspberry cheesecake pie was just the thing. It isn’t heavy so it’s easy to eat on a hot day and it’s frozen and cold and yummy and…you get the idea 🙂 The kids really enjoyed it and so did the hubby and he is not a huge fruit dessert fan.
