2 (3 oz.) pkg. cream cheese, softened
2/3 cup whipping cream
1 (9-inch) baked pie shell, cooled
1 qt. fresh red raspberries
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup unsweetened pineapple juice

Reserve half of the raspberries. In a large mixing bowl, mash the remaining raspberries. Stir in sugar; let stand about 1 hour. Sieve berry mixture.
