"A fellow stay-at-home mom gave me this recipe so we could enjoy our latte breaks more affordably with homemade biscotti," says Evelyn Bethards Wohlers of Columbia, Maryland.

Your special valentine will think you bought this gorgeous confection at a bakery! Kathy Zielicke of Fond du Lac, Wisconsin says, "This recipe may look difficult, but it really isn't, considering that you start with premade pie crust. I'm a hairdresser with an at-home salon...and I enjoy trying out my dessert creations on customers."

I use homegrown cherries in this bountiful pie with its unique crunchy coconut topping. But I've found that purchased tart cherries yield a dessert that's nearly as delicious. I always bake this pie around Presidents' Day or Valentine's Day, but it's popular with my family in any season.
