Dianne Ebke of Plymouth, Nebraska was baking an apple pie for dinner at her in-laws, when she ran short of apples at the last minute. “I substituted strawberries for the rest of the apples and didn’t tell anyone,“ she recalls. “But that pie was such a hit, I’ve been making it ever since!“

My grandmother passed down this recipe to my mother, who in turn passed it down to me. Now my daughter is making it for her family. With a graham cracker crust, custard filling and meringue topping, this pie was one of my favorites when I was growing up and it still is today.

My grandmother always made these cookies for us for Christmas, and now I have inherited that task. I make them throughout the year because I enjoy baking a lot. With rich cream cheese in the dough and the sugary almond topping, a batch doesn’t last long at our house!

Being from the Sunshine State, I love any recipe containing citrus. This one, featuring lime, is quick to mix up and disappears almost as fast. Substitute orange juice, zest and slices for the lime to get another great cheesecake variation.
