Recipe Spotlight

My birthday is in late November so my mom often morphed the Thanksgiving pumpkin pie into my birthday "cake" and had all the family sing for me. This is an update on her recipe, adding lots more of our mutual favorite ingredient, ginger. The pie's best after it's nice and chilled. Birthday candles optional. —Emily Tyra, Milwaukee, Wisconsin

When missionary friends dropped by unexpected last summer, this pie is what I served for dessert. I first made it for a church gathering 20 years ago—ever since, everyone's looked for it!

In fact, this is Mom's rhubarb strawberry pie recipe with cherries instead. I love rhubarb! My husband and I—our three children are 21, 18 and 11&
