My aunt shared this recipe with me, and my family has always enjoyed it. I love to make these bars for friends who visit or give them away as gifts.

I make this recipe often, because I'm regularly asked to bring it along for potlucks. This dish can be served as either a salad or a dessert. And, preparing it a day ahead makes it taste even better!—Mildred Livingston, Phoenix, Arizona

Back when we lived on our farm, I made this recipe often during corn-shelling time. The corn shellers were good eaters, and filling those men up sure kept me busy! This light, cool dessert was always a tremendous way to top off a big hot meal.

Old Fashioned Coffee Pudding

This pudding was handed down from my husband's great-grandmother. To give an idea of how old this recipe is, it was translated from her German script found in an old ledger when she'd collected favorite recipes from her friends. It's a bona fide and delicious "antique". The only modern touch that I've added to it is the option of using decaffeinated coffee.

WHEN Mom made pies to feed the crew during wheat harvest, she always had plenty of dough left over, so she treated us kids to apple dumplings. I've carried on this tradition in my own family. Now my husband and I enjoy this special dessert even when I'm not baking pies.

"IF MAMA had time, she'd make these pies on Saturday night. She always made two so we could have one for dessert on Monday, too. One pie server our family very nicely, and there was never any left over."

The inside scoop on this tasty treat is the white chocolate center, which makes for an especially rich dessert appropriate for celebrating New Year's. Carol Staniger of Springdale, Arkansas serves it when company calls and at holiday meals.

Watching my mother cook from scratch, I hardly knew that anything was available "pre-made" until I'd left home. One of Mom's best desserts is her creamy old-fashioned coconut pie. A rich slice is true comfort food. -Mary McGuire, Graham, North Carolina

When we were first married, my husband was in the Navy. Stationed in Puerto Rico, we had banana trees growing in our yard, so I found ways to use dozens of ripe bananas at a time. I made these banana squares often. They freeze well and make a great snack to have on hand when friends drop in for coffee. —Susan Miller, Raleigh, North Carolina

We live in a little community of 27—if everyone's home! A neighbor game this recipe when we first moved here, saying it dated back to the 1800"s and everybody in the area made it. I soon discovered why when I took a taste...and I'm not a fruit cake fan! My husband, who's the inventor of a three-point bale mover, and I have a grown son. I'm a crafter and collector.

This is a delicious and pretty salad for the holidays, but it's so good that I serve it other times, too. I got the recipe from a neighbor who had served it with a traditional turkey dinner.
