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
"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."
My mom loves caramel, nuts and cream cheese, so when I found this tart recipe I knew I had to try it. Now the dessert is a family favorite and it is served at every get-together. —Donna Urban, Glenolden, Pennsylvania
