Cozy up to the fire with a plate of satisfyingly sweet cookies that taste like home. Side them with a mug of hot chai tea or ice-cold milk, and no one will be able to resist them. —Jacque Sue Meyer, Lohman, Missouri
From Castle Rock, Colorado, Connie Colgan sent this yummy recipe. "It's my husband's favorite," she says, "but I hope your experts can lighten it up for me." See the recipe for Makeover Chunky Peanut Butter Cookies to see how we trimmed down these crunchy bites.
DELICIOUS with ice cream or whipped topping, this dessert is always a welcome treat at our table. We especially like it served warm.
I make this often year-round, but it's even tastier in the fall with newly harvested apples.
-Patricia Gross, Etna Green, Indiana
“This treat is the perfect balance between tart and sweet, and the almonds in the crust are just wonderful. This is one of my husband’s favorite desserts. Enjoy!” —Charis O'Connell, Mohnton, Pennsylvania
“With all its blueberries, this is rich in antioxidants,” says Patricia Krusing of Phoenix, Arizona. “It's scrumptious and goes together in a snap.” If you have it on hand, this warm dessert pairs well with vanilla ice cream.
