Fetch the forks! Guests will be eager to dig into this festive tart. Destined to become a favorite holiday dessert, it looks and smells as delightful as it tastes. —Bernice V. Janowski, Stevens Point, Wisconsin
Here’s a gorgeous pie that really looks like you fussed. It features a crunchy graham cracker crust with a touch of ginger, a lovely fresh strawberry layer and tasty banana cream topping. Julie Guntzel - Bemidji, Minnesota
I take this giant pie to almost every potluck. The crust is so easy, and we have lots of berries since they grow here on our small acreage. With a dessert this size, everyone can enjoy a luscious piece.

Like the spices in traditional pumpkin pie? Then try this tasty twist from Tammy Covey of Huntington, Arkansas. "Most people make this cool fluffy version for the holidays, but I think it's wonderful anytime of year," she says.
"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."
I've never entered a cooking contest before, but when Country Woman requested blueberry recipes, I had to send in this pie. Mom and I have fun making it together, and I hope one day to be a great baker like she is. — Sara West, Broken Arrow, Oklahoma
