Makeover Rum Cake has a shiny glaze, and only about half the calories and cholesterol as the original version. But it’s still moist, tender and as good with coffee in the morning as it is after a special meal. Now that’s definitely something worth celebrating. —Catharine Seman, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

I make these cookie pops often during the year. In the spring, I cut them into flower shapes and insert the pops into a block of foam fitted into a basket or bowl. You can cover the foam with tissue paper or cellophane. Add a bow if you like. They make a great centerpiece or hostess gift. Not only do the cookies look pretty, they taste good, too. —Krissy Fossmeyer, Huntley, Illinois
