This pretty raspberry pie was practically a staple at our house during the late summer. Our family had raspberry bushes, so the pie was always made with fresh-picked berries. —Emily Dennis, Hancock, Michigan
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 to make it. Normally I am a chocolate lover, but this pie makes me forget about chocolate. —Callie Palen-Lowrie, Louisville, Colorado
