I combined the tangy taste of lime and cilantro with cream cheese for this unusual berry pie that showcases seasonal fruit. The ginger cookies add zip to the crust. —Anneliese Barz, Fort Mill, South Carolina
The attractive pie, with its fresh fruit flavor and flaky crust, is my mom's signature dessert. She has perfected the recipe over the years. Served with a dollop of whipped cream, this is a dessert you'll serve again and again.
This recipe was handed down to me by my mother. It's so easy to make and always gets compliments. I like topping the nutty meringues with strawberries at Christmas, and I use peaches during the summer.

My mother treated us to strawberry desserts each spring, and this was the one we always looked forward to. I tried making it with the chocolaty cookie crust and now make it that way all the time. It's a winner. —Judith Kapcsos

This elegant after-dinner sweet, created by our Test Kitchen, lives up to its name. With pretty strawberries, a creamy filling and flaked coconut on top, it takes a little extra care to put together, but the results are well worth it.
There's plenty of sweet berry flavor in this refreshing dessert. Made with sugar-free gelatin and a graham cracker crust, the summery pie is easy to fix and attractive enough to serve to guests. I sometimes substitute fresh peaches and peach gelatin. —D. Smith, Feasterville-Trevose, Pennsylvania.
