I usually serve this in summer when fresh berries are bountiful, but I recently prepared it with frozen cherries and light cherry pie filling instead. It was a delicious glimpse of summer-to-come!

"This luscious lemon pie looks quite elegant for an Easter dinner, yet it requires little effort," notes Carolyn Griffin of Macon, Georgia. "Guests will never suspect they're eating a quick-and-easy dessert."
“This pie takes minutes to prepare and is the perfect light dessert," writes Carolyn Bauers from Norfolk, Virginia. "I make it often since my husband loves it and we both need to watch our fat and cholesterol intake. My son, who's diabetic, just loves the tangy, lemon flavor.”
If you like frozen ice cream sandwiches, you'll love the homemade goodness of these peanut buttery pudding treats. The filling is smooth and scrumptious, and the graham crackers stay crisp. They're handy to have in the freezer for when the munchies strike.
"On St. Patrick's Day our family gets together for a special dinner and other festivities," explains Susan Frantz of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. "Green is dominant in most of the food we serve, so these cupcakes tinted with pistachio pudding mix are a perfect addition.
Edna Perry of Rice, Texas blends cream cheese, sweetened condensed milk and whipped topping into instant pudding then layers this creamy concoction with vanilla wafers and sliced bananas. Served in a pretty glass bowl, the results make for a fancy yet fuss-free dessert.
Light and creamy, this terrific treat never lasts long when I serve it. The fluffy cream cheese layer topped with cool butterscotch pudding is a lip-smacking combination.
