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.

“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.

“These are beautiful for holiday parties. They're a big hit each time! To make them extra-special, use a new small paintbrush to lightly dust the almonds with a gold luster.” —Deb Holbrook, Abington, Massachusetts
