I found this recipe years ago and have been taking it to ice cream socials ever since. But you won't want to wait for a get-together to enjoy it. The cool combination of chocolate, coconut and pecans is delicious anytime.

My husband and I are grain and dairy farmers...and big fans of strawberries. The fruit I pick often ends up in this pie. The combination of the cool creamy berry filling and the delightfully different meringue crust guarantees you'll hear, "Pass the pie, please", all around the table.
My family always asks for this impressive sweet during the holidays. I've relied on this light meringue recipe for as long as I can rememberit's a surefire success each and every time I serve it.

Ring in the holidays with this creamy treat that pairs extra-thick pudding crunchy cookie crumbs. "The individual servings look so festive yet come together quite easily," writes Mesa, Arizona's Anita Beaty.
"This elegant dessert is as beautiful as it is delicious," says Brenda Bodnar from Euclid, Ohio. "Not only is it ultra-easy to prepare, but it's a make-ahead recipe, so there's no last-minute fussing when company is coming."
My mother gave me the recipe for this old-fashioned pudding. It's a great way to use up day-old bread. Nothing enhances this traditional dessert better than garden-grown rhubarb. My husband and 8-year-old daughter just love it.
My husband isn't a rice fan, so I often replace it with barley. This dessert recipe has the same sweet and satisfying flavor as traditional rice pudding. Smooth and custardy, it bakes up firm and golden.
