Creamy chocolate pie makes for an indulgent dessert. My light version let's you have this treat without any guilt. Sometimes I add a teaspoon of instant coffee granules to the sugar-cocoa mixture for a mocha pie.— Mary Ann Ring, Bluffton, Ohio
To save time when she needs a dessert in a jiffy, Sue Ross of Casa Grande, Arizona keeps this versatile crust mix on hand. The crumb mixture makes enough for four pies and complements the taste of most any filling.
Berries and hazelnuts are plentiful in our Pacific Northwest-so ingredients for this treat are often at my fingertips. I like to freeze a couple of pies to enjoy in winter. —Katherine Barrett, Bellevue, WA
