The first time I tasted my friend's dessert was at a Christmas party that she was having. I got a copy of the recipe and now it's a yuletide tradition for my family. The white chips, cranberries and orange peel take pecan pie to a scrumptious new level.Karen Moore, Jacksonville, Florida
THIS IS a recipe my mother-in-law shared with me several years ago.
It's easy to make, and most of the ingredients are in everybody's cupboard. And it does really taste like pecan pie.
We have it quite often, but it's tradition to have this pie on the menu during the holidays.

The first time I made this for my family, they gobbled up this wonderful change-of-pace holiday dessert. It has a scrumptious layer of apples under the pumpkin.Elizabeth Montogomery, Taylorville, Illinois
This pretty pie has a wonderful blend of tart and sweet flavors. I first sampled this dessert at a church dinner and finally tracked down the contributor for the recipe. Betty White, Hutchinson, Kansas
My family is fond of any treat featuring apples, but this pie is the one they like best. Unlike some fruit pies, this crust doesn't become soggy, thanks to the addition of ground walnuts. Everyone agrees the flavor of nuts pairs well with apples in this fall favorite. Evonne Wurmnest, Normal, Illinois
Mom's sweet and saucy apple pie earns a lip-smacking salute from everyone who tastes it. Since it's hard to wait for it to cool, I like to serve slices warm with a scoop of French vanilla ice cream on top.
This fruit pie, brimming with apples and pears, really says "fall." What a yummy way to use your backyard bounty or the pickings from local orchards! I've made plenty of pies over the years, and this is a real standout. —Grace Camp, Owingsville, Kentucky
