If you need a no-fuss dessert that will please kids but is elegant enough for a grown-up gathering, try this dessert. Marshmallows, banana and raspberries are stirred into the creamy treats for a fun dinner finale.—Barbara Nowakowski, North Tonawanda, New York
These tarts are as pretty to look at as they are good to eat! Crispy tortilla cups are filled with cream cheese mixture and topped with fresh raspberries. They're also delicious with sliced strawberries.

My husband and I love pie, but we can't eat a whole 9-inch pie by ourselves. So I make these easy tarts using rhubarb and raspberries picked at home. Sometimes I substitute apples, peaches or our garden blueberries for the rhubarb.—Naomi Olson Hamilton, Michigan
Julie Yuswak found the inspiration for this praiseworthy pie in her abundant raspberry patch in Savanna, Illinois. "Fresh-picked berries are luscious, but frozen unsweetened ones will do." she advises. "You can substitute strawberries and strawberry gelatin if you prefer." She combines plain and chocolate graham crackers to form the delicious crust.
No one can resist a slice (or two!) of this tart "cherry-berry" pie. Growing up, my sister and I requested this pie for our birthdays instead of cake. Now it's a favorite of my own family.

"I love mixing rhubarb with different fruits, combining its tart goodness with something sweet," says Pam Cheney, who farms 40 acres of rhubarb in Onalaska, Washington. Her pie starts with a prepared crust, is filled with rhubarb and raspberries, and its topped with streusel.
Our Test Kitchen used a prepared graham cracker crust to keep this pie simple. Layers of banana, frozen strawberry yogurt and whipped topping make it oh-so-delicious. Store one in the freezer for a spur-of-the-moment dessert when guests drop in.
