From Pickerington, Ohio, Donna Schweighofer sent the recipe for this pretty meringue pie that stars grapefruit, orange and lemon juice. "I made several changes to lighten up the original recipe," she notes, "This pie has a very fresh citrus flavor and the filling tastes nice and rich."
Red grapes tucked into the center of a molded gelatin ring accent the tangy taste of lime, orange and pineapple in this colorful salad. "It's festive enough to serve guests and goes perfectly with ham or pork roast," writes Janice Pardue of Naples, Florida. "Plus, it's cool, tasty and easy to prepare!"
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 remember—it's a surefire success each and every time I serve it.

From Danielsville, Georgia, Marsha Richmond shares this luscious after-dinner crowd-pleaser. The perfect finale to your Thanksgiving celebration, the cheesecake delivers wonderful pumpkin flavor, a hint of cinnamon and nutmeg and a unique spiced-cookie crust.
"A fellow stay-at-home mom gave me this recipe so we could enjoy our latte breaks more affordably with homemade biscotti," says Evelyn Bethards Wohlers of Columbia, Maryland. "I modified the original version by using a sugar substitute and reducing the carbohydrates and fat. Tangy dried cranberries and spices give it delicious flavor."
This creamy cheesecake is perfect for holiday desserts. The colorful topping is so good that I prepare it separately and use it as a cranberry side dish at Thanksgiving. -Mary Simonson of Kelso, Washington
