Creamy Lemon Raspberry Pie
Frozen Hot Chocolate

(Family Features) - When summer sizzles, forget about turning on the oven! Yet even with the temperature climbing, my delight in making desserts for family and friends doesn't wilt. That's when I turn to my file of favorite no-bake sweets.

Creamy Lemon Raspberry Pie is a dreamy dessert: A delicious shortbread crust is lined with raspberry jam and fresh raspberries, topped with a creamy lemon filling and garnished with more fresh berries. This classy pie always impresses.

Frozen Hot Chocolate is rich and frothy - thick enough to eat with a spoon or enjoy through a straw. Hot cocoa mix and evaporated milk make this chocolate concoction an irresistible cooler. Top tall glasses of this treat with whipped cream for kids of all ages.
