To me, this colorful pie is the epitome of summer. Bright blueberries and raspberries sandwich a cream cheese layer in the pie that’s quite festive. I can’t imagine a Fourth of July party without it. —Cindy Zarnstorff, Anchorage, Alaska
I've never entered a cooking contest before, but when Country Woman requested blueberry recipes, I had to send in this pie. Mom and I have fun making it together, and I hope one day to be a great baker like she is. — Sara West, Broken Arrow, Oklahoma
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."
I serve these fresh-fruit tarts every July at my family's Independence Day celebration. Sometimes I substitute blackberries with blackberry jam, and I often add slivered almonds to the fillings. —Nicole Chatron, Tulsa, Oklahoma
