Looking for the perfect ending to any summertime meal? Here's a swift-to-fix, creamy strawberry tart that boasts a crunchy chocolate layer tucked next to the crust. You could also make individual tartlets instead of one big one. —Dawn Tringali, Hamilton Square, New Jersey
This pie recipe is one I clipped years ago that became a big hit with my husband and three daughters. I've been baking since I was 9 years old. Back then, my friends and I would get together on Saturdays to bake chocolate chip cookies...but we liked the dough so much we ate lots of it raw! Of all the cooking I do today, I think I still enjoy baking best.
This rich treat is a hit every time I serve it. The chilled filling, brimming with bananas, is refreshing, and the cookie crust provides a chocolaty crunch. Even a small slice will satisfy the biggest sweet tooth. —Taylor Carroll, Parkesburg, Pennsylvania
"This pie is so creamy and rich-tasting that no one would guess it's light," says field editor Lisa Varner of Charleston, South Carolina. "The added bonus is that you can make it a day or two ahead and keep in the freezer until needed."
When I serve this dessert to company, they often think it has ice cream in it. It does have a smooth texture like an ice cream pie. I've been making this recipe for years - it's a refreshing end to a meal anytime!
I only need six ingredients to whip up this fluffy and refreshing grasshopper pie. I usually make two of the minty treats for our family, since we're never satisfied with just one slice. —LouCinda Zacharias, Spooner, Wisconsin
