Smooth and creamy, this velvety pie will be a festive change of pace on the dessert table. A hint of orange in the cranberry topping adds extra pizzazz that’s too delish to resist. —Taste of Home Test Kitchen
I don't prepare dessert often but this pie is one of the exceptions. Sugar-free pudding, a reduced-fat graham cracker crust and a few other items keep the fat and calories down, but no one guesses that this sweet treat is lighter than other desserts.—Vickie Madrigal, Shreveport, Louisiana
Don't look for the meringue on top of this deep-dish chocolate pie- it's on the bottom! "I used meringue to make the crust," jots Florence Oblander from Hillsboro, Kansas. "This has been a favorite dessert for many years."
Julie Yuswak found the inspiration for this praiseworthy pie in her abundant raspberry patch in Savanna, Illinois. "Fresh-picked berries are luscious, but frozen unsweetened ones will do." she advises. "You can substitute strawberries and strawberry gelatin if you prefer." She combines plain and chocolate graham crackers to form the delicious crust.
I love chocolate and cherries, but couldn't find the flavor combination in any ice cream. So I came up with this rich dessert that has a nice crunch from nuts. This pie is handy to keep in the freezer for unexpected company.—Diana Wilson Wing, Centerville, Utah
"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."
