Then put it to good use by making scrumptious Texas Lime Pie. The recipe comes from Diane Bell (left) of Manvel. "With the perfect balance of sweet and tart, this velvety pie is a great way to beat the Texas heat and Gulf Coast humidity," Diane notes. "With this simple recipe, even a novice cook can make a really memorable dessert," she adds.
Each bite of this light and fluffy pie will nearly melt in your mouth. The cracker-crumb crust holds a smooth vanilla filling topped with an airy meringue and a sprinkling of more crumbs. Everyone will crave a second slice!

For a swift sweet treat, Carol Heppner spreads a homemade graham cracker crust with canned pie filling, then tops it with a fun marshmallow and whipped cream layer. "Try it with blueberry pie filling instead," recommends the Caronport, Saskatchewan cook.
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.
This refreshing dessert tastes a little bit like orange sherbet. I make several pies at a time and keep them on hand in the freezer. My guests are always surprised to learn they're eating carrots!—Bethel Anderson, St. James, Minnesota
"A FRIEND gave me this recipe, and I love it so much! The secret is in the baking—I just let it barely show little bubbles on the surface before I take it out of the oven. You don't want cheesecake to bake too long."
Our family loves raspberries, and this pie keeps the flavor and firmness of the berries intact. The combination of the berry-gelatin and cream cheese layers keeps everyone coming back for seconds.
