When I was growing up, I loved to help my mom cut out the appealing dessert recipes from newspapers and magazines. Then we would paste them all into a big book. This recipe is one of our favorites from the collection.
"My husband and I love homemade cookies, but a full batch is too much," writes Denise Fritz of Ormond Beach, Florida. "So I concocted these oatmeal cookies with chocolate chips and dried cherries. This recipe is for chocolate-covered cherry lovers everywhere!"
Cute and chocolaty, these mini cakes are moist and rich with a crunchy almond crust. "The original recipe was so good that I just had to pare it down, and the new recipe is still delicious without a lot of leftovers," Kendra Doss relates from Smithville, Missouri.
This smooth and creamy cheesecake-like treat is light, sweet and pretty, too. Convenience products make it quick and easy to prepare. “My husband also likes this dessert when I substitute blueberry pie filling,” notes Lanae Powell of McPherson, Kansas.
DELICIOUS with ice cream or whipped topping, this dessert is always a welcome treat at our table. We especially like it served warm.
I make this often year-round, but it's even tastier in the fall with newly harvested apples.

When I was living with my mother, she loved custard,, so I'd make this comforting dessert each week. Without leftovers, there's no chance of getting tired of this treat!—Billie Bohannan, Imperial, California
I make lots of candies and I often add a few ingredients or leave some out. My great-nephew, Josh, is my taste-tester, and this recipe is among his favorites. It seems that my snack jar is always going on empty, but this gives me great joy. —Marcille Groenke
