Meet the Cook: The first time I made this pie was during winter, using frozen berries. It was a hit even then. For a change of pace, I'm planning to make it with an Oreo cookie crust the next time. While our home's in Minnesota, my husband and I also farm in South Dakota. Luckily, we do love living in the country! We have five children, ranging in age from 22 to 7.

My niece tasted this pie at a family dinner and urged me to enter it in our hometown pie contest. She said it win the Grand Prize, and she was right! I cook at our local nursing home and everyone enjoys this recipe. —Janice Schmidt, Baxter, Iowa
"I threw this dessert together when I needed something quick to take to my in-laws' house," explains Kristi Judkins of Morrison, Tennessee. "Because it's beautiful, everyone thought I fussed, but it's very easy." And since it makes a bot, it's perfect for potlucks and large get-togethers.
