In Richmond, British Columbia, Ruth Andersson piles fresh berries in a pastry crust, then dresses them up with an easy glaze and whipped cream. "It's the best fresh fruit pie I have ever tasted," she assures.
One way to my family's heart is through great-tasting food. Luckily, I've learned to take a few shortcuts to get there. This no-bake pie is a good example. Using canned pie filling and a prepared crust gets me out of the kitchen quickly.
This pie is one I frequently make for bake sales at our church. I can hardly ever set it down on the sale table without someone picking it right up and saying, "Mark this one sold!" —Cindy Zarnstorff, Anchorage, Alaska
Because you use your freezer to prepare this crunchy, creamy treat—not your oven—it won't heat up your kitchen on sweltering days. Whip it up and serve to company or the neighborhood kids. —Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board, Madison, Wisconsin
This pie is a showstopper. It's very refreshing and tart. I get frequent requests from my gang to make it. Normally I am a chocolate lover, but this pie makes me forget about chocolate. —Callie Palen-Lowrie, Louisville, Colorado
This lovely versatile tart shows up regularly at family gatherings. I can customize it for any holiday occasion by using different-shaped cookie cutouts...or different fruit fillings. And even my picky children gobble it up!
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.
