For gatherings with family and friends, we love a dessert with a splash of red. These beautiful tarts are filled with cranberry and citrus-packed flavor and are easy to make and serve. —Holly Bauer, West Bend, Wisconsin
My mother often made this pie back when we were growing up. You might say it's stood the test of time, because today it's still my 75-year-old brother's favorite! The beaten egg whites give it a delicate texture and make this custard pie quite unique! It's a great way to top off any meal. —Jeannie Fritson, Kearney, Nebraska
Good-for-you things come in small packages when you make a batch of the tiny apple pie treats shared by Mary Kelley, Minneapolis, Minnesota. Sweet and cinnamony, these mouthwatering morsels are a delightful addition to a dessert buffet or snack tray. For convenience, you can prebake the shells a day or two ahead of serving.
Fourteen years ago, I entered this beautiful lattice-top pie in the Park County Fair in Livingston. It won a first-place blue ribbon plus a purple ribbon for "Best All Around"! My large family—and many friends agree with the judges that it's very delicious.
"This pretty raspberry pie was practically a staple at our house during the late summer. Our family had raspberry bushes, so the pie was always made with fresh-picked berries."
I first prepared this pie at Thanksgiving to share with my co-workers. It was such a success! Now I freeze cranberries while they are in season so that I can make it year-round.

After spending an afternoon in the chilly October air at our town’s pumpkin rolling contest, my family, including my grandchildren, head over to my house for a fun pumpkin-themed meal including this luscious dessert. —Diane Selich, Vassar, Michigan
"After trying a little of this and a little of that, this is my result. I love berries and am always trying to find something new to do with them. Everyone loved this tart and asked for the recipe."

For my mother's 70th birthday and Mother's Day, I made two of these strawberry pies instead of a cake. Since it was mid-May in Texas, the berries were absolutely perfect. It was a memorable occasion for the whole family.

Decadent, chocolate mousse-like filling and a flakey, tender crust make this very special. Be sure to coat hands well with flour when putting the dough into pastry cups.
