"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
Warm days warrant a cool dessert like this frosty and refreshing pie. The raspberry sauce combined with rich chocolate and ice cream make each slice irresistible. All eyes will light up when you pull out this pleaser!
Toasted sesame seeds add crunch to the graham cracker crust of this luscious dessert. "Years ago, I led a homemaking course on dairy foods, and this pie was adapted from one of the recipes I used in that class. Everyone always wants seconds." —Audrey Armour, Thamesford, Ontario
My grandmother recalls ricotta pie always making an appearance on Easter when she was little. Now I've taken here recipe and created a pared down version for a more upscale appearance at holidays and other gatherings. —Stephen DeBenedictis, Wakefield, Massachusetts
“I’m sharing one of my family’s very favorite pie recipes. I love making it for special occasions, and assembling it the day before leaves extra time to spend with loved ones.” —Dagmar Vena, Nepean, Ontario
I love white chocolate and I love cheesecake...so this is one of my preferred desserts. The combination of my mom's flaky pie crust with sweet white chocolate raspberry filling is perfect. The pie crust for this recipe may seem slightly dry and may crack when rolling out. However, the less water you use, the flakier the crust will be.—Layna Hendrich, Cody, Wyoming
