Frosty, fruity and full of flavor, this pretty iced treat from Elizabeth Montgomery in Allston, Massachusetts, is sure to melt any resistance to dessert! “It’s a nice ice-cream substitute for lactose-intolerant friends and family,“ she notes. And with only 5 ingredients, it couldn’t be easier.
As part of a Mexican tradition, I tucked these tender cookies into small gift boxes for the guests at my sister's wedding a few years ago. Most folks gobbled them up before they ever got home! —Sarita Johnston, San Antonio, Texas
"Make a pot of coffee or fix a drink, this takes a while! It's worth it though-this recipe is a family favorite and we always get requests for gifts of these chewy caramels."

Friends look forward to receiving a gift of these crescents. They're my all-time favorite cookies. The pastry is tender and flaky, and the vanilla flavor comes through beautifully. —Betty Lawton, Pennington, New Jersey
When I was in high school, my best friend's mom used to make this light berry dessert...and I fell in love with it! Now I fix it for my family on special occasions. Yogurt gives it a deliciously tangy taste.
