“This bread is great alone or with a bowl of bean soup,” recommends Cindy Reams of Philipsburg, Pennsylvania. The hearty loaf has a crispy golden crust, so it’s perfect with butter or your favorite jam.
I use this recipe often for church get-togethers. Finger sandwiches are popular at these events, so I make these golden buns small and add sandwich toppings. They're a big hit with everyone.

Its pretty braided shape and pleasant dill flavor distinguishes this golden-brown loaf from other yeast breads. My family loves to eat it alongside soup, roast beef or pot roast. I almost always make two loaves-one just isn't enough!
This German classic is such a part of our reunions, we designate a special place to serve it. Five generations flock to the "Kuchen Room" for this coffee cake. —Stephanie Schentzel, Northville, South Dakota
Convenient onion soup mix gives this stunning braided loaf mild onion flavor. It's even more delicious spread with Caramelized Onion butter. As a music professor/conductor, I sometimes share this treat with my musicians to give us all an energy boost!

THIS easy-to-make bread goes well with a salad luncheon or a casserole dinner. But I especially like to serve it with spaghetti and pasta dishes. The cheese topping is its crowning glory!

I've been making this bread for many years. It smells so good in the oven and tastes even better. I make bread almost every Saturday, and it doesn't stay around long with our sons home from college in the summer.
I take Whole Wheat Butterhorns to potluck suppers, and I serve them to guests—they've always brought many requests for the recipe.
They're a favorite at home, too. The rolls don't take long to make, and they freeze very well for future use.
My husband and I have four married children and three grandchildren. We have a hay and cattle operation, and he's also a carpenter.
I enjoy gardening...every year I can and freeze my harvest, then share the bounty with friends and family.
Instead of wrapping up presents to give at Christmas, I customarily knead them. This citrusy cinnamon bread is a hit with anyone who has a sweet tooth. You can also make a loaf that's terrific for toasting by eliminating the glaze.
I make this attractive bread to celebrate Santa Lucia Day on December 13. This Swedish custom is the symbolic start of Christmas in Scandinavia, a festival of lights that brightens the short, dark days of winter. I position seven birthday candle holders in my braided loaf before adding candles to prevent wax from melting on top of the bread.
“Here’s a healthy, hearty bread that‘s perfect for toasting or just snacking,“ shares Trisha Kruse in Eagle, Idaho. “The spices and orange flavors really blend well with the cranberries to make this a fall and winter favorite.“
