""Aunt Ruth" was our nanny when I was little. She made this cheesecake often, many times as an after school project so I could help her. It was torture when my sister and I had to wait until the next day to have a piece since it had to chill overnight. Recently I visited my old neighborhood and stopped by her house. Sure enough, she offered me a piece of her wonderful cheesecake. I made sure to leave with a copy of the recipe!"

I came up with this recipe because I love the frozen cappuccino drinks at coffee shops and wanted a cheesecake with the same goods. If you try it, don't hold the whip. The creamy mocha-infused topping is the best part! —Becky McClaflin, Blanchard, Oklahoma
The wild blueberries on our property spark recipe ideas. When my daughter and I made this ice cream at a Girl Guide meeting, it was well received. Even today, our 10 children, 19 grandkids and 4 great-grandchildren think it tastes great. —Alma Mosher, Mohannes, New Brunswick
Combining two of our favorite desserts, this is a traditional holiday treat in my Italian family. We're always certain to pass down the recipe to the next generation.—Marie McConnell, Shelbyville, Illinois

Everyone will know spring is here when you serve these yummy, yellow cheesecake squares. Cool and refreshing, this dessert cuts easily and keeps for several days in the refrigerator. —Patty Auxier, Royalton, Kentucky
