My mother-in-law’s pineapple pie was a favorite with the threshing crew. A nice, big slice of it made the harvest work more enjoyable. Now, I make Theresa’s trademark pie to remember her.—Elaine Salonek, Waverly, MN
"My father loves lemon meringue pie and always wants one for his birthday," reports Susan Jones of Bradford, Ohio. "I rely on this recipe, which won first place at our county fair. It has a light flaky crust, refreshing lemon filling and soft meringue with pretty golden peaks."
A delicious and different dessert, this lemon pie is a part of all our family's special occasions. Typically, I prepare it the day before and refrigerate overnight. Still, its sunny yellow filling and creamy topping make me want to dive right in.
