"Slab pie" is a pastry baked in a jelly-roll pan and cut in slabs like a bar cookie—or a pie bar, if you will. My grandfather was a professional baker and served pieces of slab pie to his customers back in the day. Here is my spin, featuring rhubarb and gorgeous red raspberries. —Jeanne Ambrose, Milwaukee, Wisconsin

"Here's a creamy dessert that is simply luscious. My husband loves it," says Jean Smalls of Cooper City, Florida. "I'm proud to serve it to company because it always draws raves, I can make it ahead of time, then top with additional berries and chocolate curls just before serving."
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."
A diabetic for 30 years, I adapted this recipe to fit my needs. When I serve this pie, no one can believe it's sugarless. The oatmeal crust is so tender...and the filly is berry delicious!
