From field editor Denise Goedeken of Platte Center, Nebraska comes this yummy pie that's a sure winner when fresh peaches are in season. "The sour cream filling and cinnamon crumb topping complement the fruit flavor," she maintains.
To me, this colorful pie is the epitome of summer. Bright blueberries and raspberries sandwich a cream cheese layer in the pie that’s quite festive. I can’t imagine a Fourth of July party without it. A 3 ounce box of gelatin should be enough with a little leftover. —Cindy Zarnstorff, Anchorage, Alaska
