I grew up in northern Michigan, where three generations of my family have been cherry producers. This traditional cherry pie makes a mouthwatering dessert that always gets rave reviews.—Ramona Pleva, Lincoln Park, New Jersey
Vibrant color and a medley of fruit in its filling make this pretty pie a standout. "This special dessert always brings compliments," says Mrs. Clifford Davis of Fort Smith, Arkansas. "The combination of cherries, pineapple, bananas and nuts appeals to most everyone."
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.

A layer of sweetened cream cheese topped with a tart fruit filling makes this pie popular with family, friends and co-workers. It won the blue ribbon at a local fair.—Donna L. Rettew, Jonestown, Pennsylvania
It's a pleasure to serve this festive ruby-colored pie, which tastes as good as it looks! The filling is an irresistible combination of fruits and nuts. Topped with a bit of whipped cream, a lovely slice of this pie is a cool refreshing end to an enjoyable meal.

Whenever my mom is invited to a party or potluck, everyone requests her homemade double-crust fruit pies. In the summer, she uses fresh, tart cherries for this recipe. I love a slice topped with vanilla ice cream. — Pamela Eaton, Monclova, Ohio
