Cut shortening into salt and flour until mixture is pea-sized pieces. Add cold water slowly until mixture forms a ball. Refrigerate several hours or overnight.
Preheat the oven to 475 degrees F.
Roll out on a floured board. Put in pie pan. Prick crust on bottom of pan with a fork. Bake for 8 to10 minutes until light brown. Cool.
In the bowl of a mixer, combine the butter and powdered sugar and beat together until fluffy. Add the egg yolks, 1 at a time, beating after each addition. Add the peppermint and melted chocolate and mix until combined.
Beat the egg whites in a separate mixer until they hold stiff peaks. Gently fold the whites into the butter mixture.
Cream Cheese Filling:
Mix together powdered sugar, vanilla and cream cheese. Fold in whipped cream until smooth.
Cook until raspberries are partially cooked and run through a cheesecloth or sieve to get the seeds out. Return to heat and add sugar and cornstarch. Boil over medium heat. Spread 1/2 of the raspberry filling into baked pie shell gently. Spread 1/2 of the chocolate filling over that and chill. Spread 1/2 the cream cheese filling over the chocolate filling. Repeat the layers.
