Recipe Spotlight

I converted a basic sweet dough into this incredible, apple-filled pull-apart loaf. The results are anything but basic. It takes time, but I guarantee it's worth it. You can choose one of the sauces, but using both is twice as tasty.—Gina Nistico, Milwaukee, WI

These appetizers have such broad appeal. I prepare them often for holiday gatherings, weddings and family reunions. They're convenient to serve at parties since the sauce can be made ahead, then just reheated with the franks before serving. —Lucille Howell, Portland, Oregon

Sugar Cookie Scarecrow and Pumpkins

To add bushels of fall flavor to your birthday bash, try baking up this cookie scarecrow shaped and decorated by the Crafting Traditions kitchen crew. It starts with Vickie's sugar cookies. "The recipe is a winner with my family and friends," Vickie says. "I am always asked to bring it—or even make it—for people." The scarecrow's easily adapted for other themes besides. For example, try a clown with bouncing balls or an athlete with baseballs instead.—Vickie Wade, Bourbo
