My daughter and I trimmed down a recipe from a television cooking show, and these bite-size cheesecakes were the result. We shared them with neighbors and friends, and no one suspected they were light. —Lori Lewis of St. Johns, Michigan
This sweet berry dessert makes an especially pretty final course in the spring. With berries, a creamy topping and a sprinkle of meringue cookies, it always earns praise. —Lillian Julow of Gainesville, Florida
“This pie takes minutes to prepare and is the perfect light dessert," writes Carolyn Bauers from Norfolk, Virginia. "I make it often since my husband loves it and we both need to watch our fat and cholesterol intake. My son, who's diabetic, just loves the tangy, lemon flavor.”
Memories of her mom's fruity date bars inspired Shannon Koene of Blacksburg, Virginia to create this wonderful recipe. “I've had great results replacing the apricot jam with orange marmalade,” notes Shannon.
"A mix of taste good-for-you ingredients makes these chewy blond brownies impossible to pass up," says Janet Farley of Snellville, Georgia. "The granola adds crunch while dried fruit lends pleasing sweetness. I serve them to just about anybody who walks in our front door."
