I have enjoyed this recipe since the 1960s, when my in-laws' dear neighbor shared it. Similar to a fruit fluff, this yummy dessert has a macaroon crust and plenty of fruit and nuts in the filling.

One way to my family's heart is through great-tasting food. Luckily, I've learned to take a few shortcuts to get there. This no-bake pie is a good example. Using canned pie filling and a prepared crust gets me out of the kitchen quickly.
This dessert is oh-so-rich and handy to have in the freezer for unexpected company (like we had last night!). I grew up with eight brothers who devoured a cake every day! That meant my mother and I spent many evenings in the kitchen...and we never heard of cake mixes back then!
Whenever I'm invited to an outing involving food, so is my cheesecake. Light in texture, it has deliciously rich flavor. With its cranberry-pink color, it looks too pretty to cut...but don't let that stop you.
Milky Way candy bars and make-ahead convenience give this sweet specialty its fantastic flair. "Our children and their families love this eye-appealing dessert," says Pat Pierce of Epworth, Iowa. "And I never worry about left-overs because it's gone in a flash."
Our Test Kitchen staff takes advantage of convenience products to transform plain store-bought cheesecake into a delectable dessert. Served on a plate decorated with swirls of chocolate syrup, each sensational slice looks as if a master baker prepared it.
