Rhubarb and blueberries are both native to our area, and this pie combines the flavors beautifully. We are fortunate to have a healthy rhubarb patch in our garden. It keeps us supplied with rhubarb from spring until well into fall.
"My husband likes this fruity combination almost as much as traditional apple pie - and that's saying something!" notes field editor Joan Rose of Langley, British Columbia. "I keep rhubarb, blueberries and raspberries in the freezer and always have apples on hand for this colorful dessert."
This pie is one I frequently make for bake sales at our church. I can hardly ever set it down on the sale table without someone picking it right up and saying, "Mark this one sold!" —Cindy Zarnstorff, Anchorage, Alaska
Talk about scrumptious summer desserts - this one is colorful, cool and sweet. Fresh raspberries are my favorite fruit, and pie's my favorite dessert...so this is the perfect combination for me! I think you'll enjoy it, too.
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.

I've been cooking since I was a girl and I especially enjoy making fresh, fruity desserts like this. It's wonderful and light for warm weather or after a large meal. A must when fresh berries are in season! —Erica Cooper, Elk River, Minnesota
I serve this apple pie at my monthly bridge club meetings and it always gets thumbs up. You don't need to serve it with a slice of cheese, since there is cheese in the streusel.Mary June Donovan, Clinton, Massachusetts
Jewel-toned fruits team up to pack this pretty pie with festive flavor. The recipe is one our four grown children especially enjoy when they come home for family holiday meals. —Verona Koehlmoos, Pilger, Nebraska
