I make these almond butter cookies for all occasions. In the spring, I cut them in flower shapes and insert a lollipop stick in them to make a bouquet. Using candies, food coloring and a wild imagination, try your hand at this Halloween-inspired version. —Kristine Fossmeyer, Huntley, Illinois
In Mexico, these rich cookies are called "Little Wedding Cakes" and usually are served with hot chocolate. Since moving here close to Mexico from the Midwest, I've enjoyed trying authentic recipes—they're a sharp departure from the Iowa favorites I grew up with! I love introducing these to relatives and friends! —Terri Lins, San Diego, California
This is the perfect finale to any Mexican meal. A friend shared this recipe. We lightened it and came up with this treat. We hope you agree that it's a great way to end meals.Krista Frank, Rhododendron, Oregon
Finish off a fiesta with a piece of this moist and refreshing cake from Anna Yeatts of Pinehurst, North Carolina. Though it’s been lightened, the sweet flavors of this traditional Mexican dessert aren’t lost, making it the perfect end to any meal.
I came up with this chocolate and peanut butter treat when I needed a unique, fast dessert for a special dinner. The filled tortillas take just minutes on the grill and get a chewy consistency from marshmallows.

During our extensive travels to Central America, my husband and I have sampled many kinds of the popular tres leches (three milks) cake. We think this is the absolute best! --Joan Meyers, Palos Park, Illinois
"I was inspired to create this rich dessert after seeing a similar recipe in our newspaper," writes Sunny Goodyear of Camp Hill, Pennsylvania. "I love that it frees up my oven for the main course. It is easy and wonderful!"
