Fresh Fruit/Cheese Pie

Not only is this pie delicious—it's one even dieters can enjoy without worry. I seldom bake my cheese pie the same way twice. Often, I substitute wheat germ or granola for the coconut flakes...and the naturally fruity main ingredients fluctuate with whatever's hanging heavy on backyard branches! —Jody Steinke, Nekoosa, Wisconsin
