Making these doughnuts has long been a custom in my French Canadian family. I remember helping with these tender treats as a child and eating the "holes" with my sister and brother. I loved their hint of lemon flavor! Carrying on the tradition, my husband, children and I have made these yummy doughnuts every Christmas for many years.—Michelle Vander Byl, Portland, Ontario
"The recipe for these golden sugar-topped puffs comes from my mother," writes Pat Klingler from her home in Ashtabula, Ohio. "They are a great way to warm up a cool day. I like to fry them up when I have friends come for coffee."
These delightful doughnuts are less greasy than some store-bought varieties, plus they're easy to prepare. My mother and I made the brown sugar frosting is a cast-iron skillet. —Darlene Brenden, Salem, Oregon
Just four ingredients are all you'll need for this sure-to-be-popular treat sent in by Ginny Watson of Broken Arrow, Oklahoma. Friends and family will never guess that a tube of refrigerated buttermilk biscuits are the base for these golden, jelly-filled doughnuts. TIP: Vary the flavor by using different jams.
These bear claws are absolutely melt-in-your-mouth delicious! It's impossible to resist the delicate pastry, rich almond filling and pretty fanned tops sprinkled with sugar and almonds. I made yummy treats like this when I worked in a bakery years ago.

There's no need to run to the bakery for delicious jelly doughnuts! These sweet treats are lighter than air. I've been fixing them for 25 years for my husband, our two daughters and their families. They disappear almost as fast as I make them.
