This show-stopping pie can be decorated to fit any season. I like to make stars for Independence Day, leaves for fall, hearts for Valentine's Day or even flowers for spring. Have fun with it! —Kerry Nakayama, New York, New York
Becky Thompson of Maryville, Tennessee came up with this quick pie with she needed a low-fat dessert for a get together. "My husband picked this pie over apple pie, which he generally prefers," she recalls. "He raves about how good it is."
As a sweet finale to Father's meal, surprise him with this dessert-it'll remind him of the pies his mother used to make. "He doesn't have to know how simple it is!" says Nellie VanSickle of Silver Bay, New York.
this light dessert from Shirley Dierolf of Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania is a perfect ending to a meal. "The original recipe from Mom called for sliced peaches, which are alos good," she says. "I have used fresh raspberries, too."
"When I was growing up, we'd eat these wonderful fried pies faster than Mom could make them," recalls Sharon Garrison of Bella Vista, Arkansas. "The recipe has been handed down for generations in my family."
Lightly glazed fresh fruit nestled in delicate pastry creates a looks-like-you-fussed dessert. Shares TerryAnn Moore of Vineland, New Jersey. "One taste of the crisp-tender shell topped with sweet berries, and I don't miss those confections with more fat and sugar."
