OUR GRANDCHILDREN go through these cookies like locusts in a wheat field! I always tell my husband to try hiding them when the grandkids come, but their little noses find them every time. -Martha Crowe, La Plata, Maryland

I SAW this recipe in our local newspaper and modified it so that it serves two. Cheese Danish has become standard fare at our house. When company drops by, I simple double the recipe to accommodate my guests. They love this sweet treat, and so do I - it's delicious and preparation time is minimal. -Mary Margaret Merritt, Washington Court House, Ohio

THIS WONDERFUL old recipe was a treat during the Depression. We didn't have dairy topping in those days, so we enjoyed it with real, heavy cream. Mother served this as a special treat for our family. During celebrations we got to eat it in glass dishes with a cherry on the top. —Barbara Thomas Berkeley Heights, New Jersey

I LOVE harvesttime and being able to cook with all the fresh produce gathered from gardens and groves. Since there's so much of everything, I try to be creative by enhancing old recipes with slight variations. That's what happened with these baked apples. The spices and touch of orange make the flavor just perfect! —Lorraine Chausse Cornwall, Ontario

THESE COOKIES earned me a first-place ribbon at the county fair. They remain my husband's favorites—whenever I make them to give away, he always asks me where his batch is! I especially like the fact that the recipe makes a small enough batch for the two of us to nibble on. —Penny Ann Habeck Shawana, Wisconsin

MY BELOVED Swiss mother-in-law gave me this recipe years ago. It's quick and easy to prepare and, as she was so frugal, easy on the pocketbook! I've served this delicious dessert to groups, but it's best served individually. —Laura Mae Peterson Salem, Oregon

NOW THAT our nest holds only two of us, I've had to develop many dishes for two. My husband and I love this dessert, and it also makes an elegant finish to a meal when company comes. You'll hear lots of "oohs" and "aahs"! —Mildred Sherrer Bay City, Texas

WHEN Mom made pies to feed the crew during wheat harvest, she always had plenty of dough left over, so she treated us kids to apple dumplings. I've carried on this tradition in my own family. Now my husband and I enjoy this special dessert even when I'm not baking pies.

MY FAMILY doesn't care for fruitcake, but we like this modified version. It's similar to a date-nut bread and we enjoy it with the butter sauce. It's really moist and delicious. I'm glad a friend shared this recipe with me many years ago. —Mrs. C. Cunningham Astoria, New York

A small chocolate cake can be just as good as a large one. Plus, none of it goes to waste. Husband Loren and I love its terrific from-scratch taste and rich chocolate frosting.—Paula Anderson, Springfield, Illinois
