I came up with this spiced cake after Thanksgiving to use up my leftover sweet potatoes. To prevent discoloration after grating, I keep them loosely covered with a damp paper towel.—Deborah Biggs, Omaha, Nebraska
This is truly an "oldie", dating back to a Swedish woman born in 1877! Her daughter, Esther Davis, shared the recipe with me and she came up with all the exact measurements, since the original cookies were mixed by "feel" and taste. These are my favorite cookies and I hope they'll become yours as well.
I rely on canned pumpkin and a yellow cake mix to fix this effortless alternative to pumpkin pie. It's a tried-and-true dessert that always elicits compliments and requests for the recipe. —Linda Guyot, Fountain Valley, California
Because I'm our town's postmaster, I can bake only in my spare time. When I do, I especially like making breads and desserts.
I'm one of six children, and I learned to cook young! This recipe came from my aunt in Alabama. I've used it in all sorts of different ways over the years—as strawberry shortcake...tucked under ice cream and chocolate syrup like a hot fudge sundae...or like pound cake with powdered sugar.—Karen Conrad, East Troy, Wisconsin
Soft gingersnaps embody the tastes and smells of the season. Enjoy cloves, cinnamon and ginger blended into one delicious cookie. These are perfect for Thanksgiving and fall gatherings. —Lara Pennell, Mauldin, South Carolina
I'm a busy mother of two young children. I work in our school office and help my husband on our hog and cattle farm. When I find time to bake a treat, I like it to be special. The creamy filling gives traditional peanut butter cookies a new twist.

When I go to potlucks, family gatherings or on hunting and fishing trips with my husband and son, this cake is one of my favorite desserts to bring. The flavorful cake stays moist as long as it lasts, which isn't long!
