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
This recipe is quick and easy. I found it years ago, but didn't use it until I started raising my own strawberries. Once the berries ripen in spring, I always make this pie to take to church dinners. It's really popular!
"WE STILL GO OUT to the strawberry farms to pick our own berries for this pie, and a delicious one it is!
"This pie was a family favorite while I was growing up, and it has become the same with my own family, which is nearly all grown.
"Strawberries are one of my favorite fruits, and when they're in season, you can bet this is a treat we have often!"
"Whenever I make this creamy banana pie topped with a thick strawberry sauce, everyone looks forward to dessert," shares Zahra Sulemanji of Houston, Texas. "The recipe was passed on to me by my mother-in-law."
