You'll love the sunny color and fruity flavor of this light dessert. If you can't find mangoes, substitute fresh peaches. To peal peaches, drop them into boiling water for a few seconds. Then you can easily slip the skins right off. —Test Kitchen

"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 don't prepare dessert often but this pie is one of the exceptions. Sugar-free pudding, a reduced-fat graham cracker crust and a few other items keep the fat and calories down, but no one guesses that this sweet treat is lighter than other desserts.—Vickie Madrigal, Shreveport, Louisiana
