Simple & Delicious Test Kitchen
I'm asked to take this popular cheesecake to every gathering. I created the recipe about 10 years ago and my family has been asking for it ever since. In fact, when I was ill at Thanksgiving one year, my sister even made it for my family to enjoy. —Christine Ooyen, Winnebago, Illinois
Raspberry or cherry pie filling gives a festive appearance to this rich no-bake cheesecake that's perfect for Valentine's Day. "This elegant-looking dessert makes a dramatic presentation," writes Irene Pitzer of Nashville, Tennessee. "Get ready to share the recipe."
"This make-ahead recipe was given to me by an aunt many years ago," writes Joyce Key. "Her recipe called for lemon gelatin, but we like this dessert with more of a bite to it, so we use lime instead. The light fluffy squares are especially great in summer," assures the Snellville, Georgia cook.
This no-bake treat comes together quickly and can even be made the night before. Sometimes I drizzle additional chocolate syrup over the coffee and pound cake. Other times, I add sliced almonds to the topping.—Nancy Brown, Dahinda, Illinois
"These irresistible treats are simple enough for kids to make, and they sell well at bazaars," says Renee Schwebach of Dumont, Minnesota. "You can use different candy sprinkles to reflect other holiday themes."
Cooked in the microwave, this fast fudge is a sweet addition to any holiday gathering. “I make this when I need a quick treat for a school party or to take to a neighbor,” says Shellie Tucker from Hendersonville, Tennessee.
This recipe makes a great breakfast dish or eye-catching appetizer, as well as a scrumptious dessert for parties and picnics. I've made it so many times and always receive lots of compliments! —Joan Warner Carr, Kingwood, West Virginia
