In a bowl, crush raspberries to make a paste consistency.
In bowl, stir softened ice cream slightly. Drop spoonsful of raspberries onto ice cream. With knife, cut through mixture once or twice to create a ripple effect.
Spoon half of ice cream mixture into pie plate.
Layer remaining ladyfingers on top of ice cream; sprinkle with remaining liqueur.
Spoon remaining ice cream onto ladyfingers.
Freeze until firm, about 4 hours.
About 20 minutes before serving, preheat oven to 500 degrees F.

With spoon, quickly spread meringue over top of pie, sealing to edge; swirl meringue over top of pie to make attractive top.
