Like a peach pie but easier to share and transport! These bars with a press-in shortbread crust are just the thing for a summer potluck or picnic.

Blueberry Crumble

Raspberry Cobbler

Rating: 3 stars 242
Berry fine, indeed: The jammy, intensely fruity base of this raspberry cobbler -- which packs in five whole cups of berries -- is balanced by a light, sweet biscuit topping.

Mini Pear-and-Cranberry Amaretti Crisps

Sliced almonds and store-bought amaretti—cookies made from almond flour and egg whites—double the nutty flavor of these crisps, which each serve one or two people. Silky pears bring the sweetness, and cranberries keep things interesting with their mouth-puckering punch. A scoop of vanilla ice cream melting into the crags is, of course, a welcome addition.
