My mom was well-known for her delicious Kringle. She made it from memory and when she passed away, we didn’t have the recipe to carry-on this tradition. We searched through her recipes and we found what we believe was her original starting recipe. So that’s where we began. The dough remains the same, but I have adjusted the filling ingredients until it finally came out just right. Try this tender, flaky pastry with its almonds and coconut filling, and you’ll be hooked on it like us!—Debora
This has become my "trademark" dessert. I'm asked to take it everywhere I go! Diagonal cuts in the dough give this coffee cake a pretty look without the extra work of braiding it.

I rely on a cake mix to speed the prep for this moist streusel-topped dessert that pairs tart rhubarb with sweet strawberries. It's great all by itself, but feel free to add some frosting or ice cream. —Jackie Heyer, Cushing, Iowa
When I was on treat duty for my moms' group, I baked this pumpkin coffee cake. So many people asked for the recipe, the group director wound up putting it in our newsletter. —Rachel Dodd, Avondale, Arizona
