In Richmond, British Columbia, Ruth Andersson piles fresh berries in a pastry crust, then dresses them up with an easy glaze and whipped cream. "It's the best fresh fruit pie I have ever tasted," she assures.
These tarts are as pretty to look at as they are good to eat! Crispy tortilla cups are filled with cream cheese mixture and topped with fresh raspberries. They're also delicious with sliced strawberries.

Whether my husband and I are hosting a backyard barbecue or a formal dinner, we love treating guests to this raspberry pie. I transport it to potlucks or family gathering in my extra-deep cake carrier so the meringue stays intact.
"Slab pie" is a pastry baked in a jelly-roll pan and cut in slabs like a bar cookie—or a pie bar, if you will. My grandfather was a professional baker and served pieces of slab pie to his customers back in the day. Here is my spin, featuring rhubarb and gorgeous red raspberries. —Jeanne Ambrose, Milwaukee, Wisconsin
