I had an overabundant supply of cherries one year, so I adapted several recipes to use them up. I knew this one was a keeper when I received phone calls from my Mother and Grandmother complimenting me on this pie.
When missionary friends dropped by unexpected last summer, this pie is what I served for dessert. I first made it for a church gathering 20 years agoever since, everyone's looked for it!
As a young girl, I dreamed of being able to make pies like my mother. (Her rolling pin, which I inherited, was 2 ft. long and 8 in. wide!) In fact, this is Mom's rhubarb strawberry pie recipe with cherries instead.
I love rhubarb! My husband and Iour three children are 21, 18 and 11have a 30-acre farm, with hay and cattle, in addition to our city jobs, and I grow eight hills of rhubarb.
Christmas is the perfect time to treat your family and guests to a luscious pie with chocolate, cherries and nuts in a creamy vanilla mousse. It's a sweet yet light dessert. Dorothy Pritchett, Wills Point, Texas
I use homegrown cherries in this bountiful pie with its unique crunchy coconut topping. But I've found that purchased tart cherries yield a dessert that's nearly as delicious. I always bake this pie around Presidents' Day or Valentine's Day, but it's popular with my family in any season.
No one can resist a slice (or two!) of this tart "cherry-berry" pie. Growing up, my sister and I requested this pie for our birthdays instead of cake. Now it's a favorite of my own family.

Vibrant color and a medley of fruit in its filling make this pretty pie a standout. "This special dessert always brings compliments," says Mrs. Clifford Davis of Fort Smith, Arkansas. "The combination of cherries, pineapple, bananas and nuts appeals to most everyone."
“You may want to make two of these easy ice cream pies-one to serve and the other to store in the freezer for company. The combination of chocolate and cherries is irresistible.” —Lisa Varner, Charleston, South Carolina
A neighbor shared this pie with me years ago, and now it has a big fan club. I'm always looking for new treats to bake for my family, but this is one I turn to again and again, especially in summer. —Wanda Van Voorhis, Plain City, Ohio
