A treat for all tastes, this one’s sweet, tart and nutty all rolled into one. Make it during the holidays, for birthdays, and whenever you crave something fabulous and fruity.—Sonya Labbe, Los Angeles, California
“I got the idea for this delicious fall dessert from a lovely Italian woman who’s also a fabulous cook,” writes Stacie Blemings from Califon, New Jersey. “It’s so simple to make—and cleanup is just as easy! I often make two and freeze one. It’s great at brunch alongside eggs and bacon.”
STACIE’S TIP: For some tasty variations, try strawberry jam and walnuts and skip the icing. Or add extra cinnamon chips to suit your taste.
The fluffed filling in this mouthwatering pie forms beautiful peaks and is nutmeg-colored. Rich and creamy, this popular dessert tastes so good with its buttery graham cracker crust.—Sheila Bradshaw, Powell, Ohio
After this ruby-red pie got rave reviews on Thanksgiving, I was happy to bake it again for Christmas dinner. The naturally tart cranberries are perfectly sweetened and accented with walnuts, raisins and lemon.
Apricots and pumpkin pie spices come together in this truly special tart from our Test Kitchen. Cold vanilla ice cream makes a perfect companion to the soft, warm apricots. —Taste of Home Test Kitchen, Greendale, Wisconsin
