It's well worth the effort to prepare this spectacular tart, which is best made and served the same day. A friend gave me the recipe, and it always receives rave reviews at gatherings. —Susan Terzakis, Andover, Massachusetts
Rhubarb and blueberries are both native to our area, and this pie combines the flavors beautifully. We are fortunate to have a healthy rhubarb patch in our garden. It keeps us supplied with rhubarb from spring until well into fall.
Wow! That’s what you’ll hear when you bring this showstopping tart to the table. A hint of mint and lime, luscious blueberries, pleasant ginger and a buttery crust—it’s tough to stop at just one slice. —Karen Hicks, Mabelvale, Arkansas
Mmmm—this tart is bursting with the fresh flavor of blueberries! "Not only do I bake the berries with the crust," describes Lyin Schramm of Berwick, Maine, "but after I take the tart out of the oven, I top it with just-picked fruit."
Mom puts luscious fresh blueberries, strawberries and raspberries to great use in this cool, refreshing pie. A super dessert on a hot day, it provides a nice light ending to a hearty meal.

My dad would always stop the car on the side of the road in Maine and say, "I smell blueberries." He had a pail ready. Then Mom would bake the wild berries in a cornmeal crust to make this homey tart. —Priscilla Gilbert, Indian Harbour Beach, Florida
"My husband likes this fruity combination almost as much as traditional apple pie - and that's saying something!" notes field editor Joan Rose of Langley, British Columbia. "I keep rhubarb, blueberries and raspberries in the freezer and always have apples on hand for this colorful dessert."
I combined the tangy taste of lime and cilantro with cream cheese for this unusual berry pie that showcases seasonal fruit. The ginger cookies add zip to the crust. —Anneliese Barz, Fort Mill, South Carolina
This pie is one I frequently make for bake sales at our church. I can hardly ever set it down on the sale table without someone picking it right up and saying, "Mark this one sold!" —Cindy Zarnstorff, Anchorage, Alaska
