This pretty raspberry pie was practically a staple at our house during the late summer. Our family had raspberry bushes, so the pie was always made with fresh-picked berries. —Emily Dennis, Hancock, Michigan
This ruby-red treat is just sweet enough, with a hint of almond flavor and a good level of cinnamon. The cherries peeking out of the lattice crust makes it so pretty, too. —Josie Bochek, Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin
I live in a big apple-producing state, so I think this recipe represents our region well. I tasted this pie many years ago when my children's babysitter made it. I asked for the recipe and have made it many times since.
Our family loves raspberries, and this pie keeps the flavor and firmness of the berries intact. The combination of the berry-gelatin and cream cheese layers keeps everyone coming back for seconds.
I make this family favorite every year for a gathering at my sister's, where the recipe is known as "Uncle Mike's pie." I use only fresh berries, apples and rhubarb that I grow myself. —Michael Powers, New Baltimore, Virginia
This is the only apple pie my husband will eat, but that's all right since he makes it as often as I do. Like a combination of apple and pecan pie, it's a sweet treat that usually tops off our holiday meals from New Year's all the way through to Christmas!

This special recipe combines all the warm, delicious flavors of the season and makes a truly unique presentation. It gets rave reviews each year and has become a holiday tradition at our house. —Trisha Fox, Plainfield, Illinois
To me, this colorful pie is the epitome of summer. Bright blueberries and raspberries sandwich a cream cheese layer in the pie that’s quite festive. I can’t imagine a holiday party without this tasty treat! —Cindy Zarnstorff, Anchorage, Alaska
We live in blueberry country, and this pie is a perfect way to showcase the luscious berries. A neighbor first made this for us several years ago. It’s become our iconic summer treat. —Mrs. R. Ricks, Kalamazoo, Michigan
My husband’s grandmother was a great cook and didn’t always share her secrets, so we are fortunate to have her recipe for rhubarb cream pie. I added one of my favorite crusts and a never-fail meringue. —Elaine Sampson, Colesburg, Iowa
I've been cooking since I was a girl and I especially enjoy making fresh, fruity desserts like this. It's wonderful and light for warm weather or after a large meal. A must when fresh berries are in season! —Erica Cooper, Elk River, Minnesota
