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
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."
One of my favorite bakeries makes this scrumptious tart that uses fall and summer fruit, so I created my own version. I like to serve it warm with whipped cream or ice cream and with a cup of coffee on a cool autumn night.—Sarah Knoblock, Hyde Park, Indiana
These pies have just two ingredients in the filling, so they're a snap to assemble. yet they look and taste like you fussed. Topped with fresh blueberries and raspberries, they're irresistible.—Dawn Fagerstrom, Warren, Minnesota
