My daughter works at a summer camp, so I send treats. Instead of a cookie jar we use a coffee can and call it the Wrangler Feeding Trough. Everyone asks for this cookie. —Sue Klemm, Rhinelander, Wisconsin
"For a heavenly light and fluffy frosting, you can't top this cooked version," jots Georgie Bohmann of West Allis, Wisconsin. "You'll definitely want to lick the beaters after whipping up this modern variation of the classic 7-minute frosting."
"Working in food-related jobs over the years, I've collected lots of delicious recipes like this one," reveals Janice Todd of La Crosse, Wisconsin. "This fluffy fruity dessert has old-fashioned appeal."
Applesauce and strawberry chunks give substance to this lovely rose-colored treat from Julie Bick of Lyons, Ohio. "My mother-in-law shared the recipe for this refreshing gelatin salad, which is not only great-tasting, but good for you!"
"This smooth, fluffy frosting is a real treat for cake lovers on a restricted diet—plus everybody else," shares Kim Marie Van Rheenen of Mendota, Illinois. "Another way I like to serve it is layered in a parfait glass with cubed angel food cake or fresh fruit and topped with additional whipped topping. It makes a pretty dessert."
If you're in a big hurry, these cupcakes are delicious even without frosting. The recipe works well with either fresh or frozen rhubarb, and a hint of nutmeg sparks the flavor. —Sharon Nichols, Brookings, South Dakota
