Thelma Brown's cinnamony dessert is a longtime favorite. "When our six children lived at home, I made this often," says the Fulton, Illinois cook. "When my husband became diabetic, I reduced the sugar in the recipe. He enjoys this version as much as the original."
This is a delicious staple to have on hand during the summer grilling season. A speedy alternative to bottled sauce, it can be brushed on chicken, ribs, pork or even turkey. —Lynn Sawyer, Two Rivers, Wisconsin
"Since I was trying to steer clear of high-calorie desserts, I created this recipe so I could still enjoy the flavors of the holidays," explains Jennifer Geigel of Embrun, Ontario. "My family enjoys and requests this treat, which they say tastes like pumpkin pie. They can't believe it's light."
