Apple Roly-Poly isn't very fancy, but it's genuine "Down East" fare. It came from my grandmother. With 13 children plus the men at Grampa's sawmill, she had to do lots of cooking each day! My husband and I have four children, 10 to 3. We crop 1,500 acres of corn, soybean, wheat and white beans.

The idea to hang Easter egg-shaped cookies from a tree came from hanging gingerbread cookies on a Christmas tree. You can use the tree as a decoration, then at the end of the meal, kids and adults alike can help themselves to dessert.—Sue Gronholz, Beaver Dam, Wisconsin
