I make this family favorite every year for a gathering at my sister's, where the recipe is known as "Uncle Mike's pie." I use only fresh berries, apples and rhubarb that I grow myself. —Michael Powers, New Baltimore, Virginia
This is the only apple pie my husband will eat, but that's all right since he makes it as often as I do. Like a combination of apple and pecan pie, it's a sweet treat that usually tops off our holiday meals from New Year's all the way through to Christmas!

Meet the Cook: Whether I've served this pie at family meals or club luncheons, I have never met a person who didn't enjoy it. It is easy to prepare, tasty and very pretty. I'm a widow with six married children and 20 grandchildren.

“This special recipe combines all the warm, delicious flavors of the season and makes a truly unique presentation. It gets rave reviews each year and has become a holiday tradition at our house.” Trisha Fox - Plainfield, Illinois
Mouthwatering fresh raspberries star in this luscious pie. There's nothing to distract from the tangy berry flavor and gorgeous ruby color. A big slice is an excellent way to enjoy the taste of summer.—Patricia Staudt, Marble Rock, Iowa
I live in a big apple-producing state, so I think this recipe represents our region well. I tasted this pie many years ago when my children's babysitter made it. I asked for the recipe and have made it many times since.
We live in blueberry country, and this pie is a perfect way to showcase the luscious berries. A neighbor made this pie for us when we had a death in the family several years ago, and she shared the recipe, too. Our whole family enjoys it.
My husband’s grandmother was a great cook and didn’t always share her secrets, so we are fortunate to have her recipe for rhubarb cream pie. I added one of my favorite crusts and a never-fail meringue. —Elaine Sampson, Colesburg, Iowa
