“This delicious pie is easy to make and so pretty,” writes Diane Lombardo of New Castle, Pennsylvania. It comes together in under 30 minutes and since you can make it in advance, it’s ideal for entertaining.
Meet the Cook: For me, baking is a relaxation rather than a chore. This is one of my favorites, a dessert I adapted from a neighbor's recipe for praline chocolate pie.
The house my husband and I live in is in the suburbs, overlooking fields.

THIS IS a recipe my mother-in-law shared with me several years ago.
It's easy to make, and most of the ingredients are in everybody's cupboard. And it does really taste like pecan pie.
We have it quite often, but it's tradition to have this pie on the menu during the holidays.

This pretty pie has a wonderful blend of tart and sweet flavors. I first sampled this dessert at a church dinner and finally tracked down the contributor for the recipe. —Betty White, Hutchinson, Kansas
A friend gave me this divine recipe after I asked how she managed to put together such an elegant pie after a long day at work. Prepared cookie dough, marshmallow creme and a little instant coffee make it a breeze to assemble.

Husband Don and I love pie, but we can't eat a who 9-inch pie by ourselves. So I make these easy tarts using rhubarb and fruit from our red raspberry bushes. Sometimes I substitute apples, peaches or our homegrown blueberries for the rhubarb.
From Dickinson, North Dakota, Lila McNamara relates, "Fresh or frozen rhubarb works equally well in this pie. It's delicious served with ice cream. And it's quick and easy if you use ready-made crusts."
