My husband and I just built a new house in a small rural community in western New York. I work all day in an office, and I enjoy baking in the evening to relax. The wonderful aroma of these soft delicious cookies in our oven has made our new house smell like home.

All my leftover bread ends (raisin bread is a favorite in this house) and buns go in the freezer. Then, when I've stashed away enough, I whip up a batch of this pudding. It's an all-occasion dishI've made it for holidays, potlucks, picnics...for any occasion or no occasion!
I've been making my bread pudding since I was a girlthe recipe originated with my great-aunt. My husband, who cash-crops with his father and brother, loves it. We're the parents of two children, a 2-year-old girl and a boy born just last yearon Christmas morning!
One thing's certain each time I serve this...someone will ask for the recipe!
My family...my husband and our children, 12 and 9and I live on the outskirts of town. I grow my rhubarb, and my plant gets bigger every year.
My mother made this candy for years using several kinds of nuts. Then I was married and my husband raised sunflowers, so it seemed natural to use those. People always comment on the unique delicious taste.Trish Gehlhar, Ypsilanti, North Dakota
My grandma often baked these delicious "pies" as a special treat for me. Whenever I make them for my own children, I relive those wonderful days with Grandma. Anyone who likes raisins is sure to love this recipe!
