Whipped topping conceals a glorious blend of cherries, pineapple, bananas and pecans in this pie from Louise Roth of Sterling, Kansas. "This was one of my father's favorites," she writes. "I also like to serve it to special company."

"This is a wonderful pie to serve in the summer and also pretty at Christmas also! Women especially like it, and it was the most requested pie we served when our club furnished food for our local auction house concession. I've also made it with sugar-free Jell-O, Splenda, and no sugar added cherry filling, and it's just as good. Since it makes two pies, it's a great dessert to make for several people. And--it's easy!"
