Pop one in a lunch box, share a batch at work or wait until dessert—these are sweet anytime, anywhere. Sometimes, I refrigerate prepared tarts overnight and bake them while making dinner the next day. Foolproof. —Carole Fraser, North York, Ontario
When you're short on time but long for cheesecake, try this fruity dessert. Ricotta and cream cheeses give every but the flavor of cheesecake but without the fuss. Instead of making individual servings, you could layer the ingredients in a glass serving bowl.
I love to make up recipes for foods that I am craving, such as chocolate, toffee and caramel. They came together in this brownie for one sensational treat. I frequently make these to add to care packages for family and friends.—Brenda Caughell, Durham, North Carolina
