A fellow home economist shared this recipe for a sweet, fruit-filled pastry. My son, who isn’t a dessert fan, was disappointed when he came home to find his dad had polished off the last kolache in the batch.—Ann Johnson, Evansville, Indiana
I recently took this rich dessert to a fellowship meeting at our church. Everyone loved it! In fact, so many people asked for the recipe that the church secretary printed it in our monthly newsletter.

“On Saturdays, Mom would pack us five kids into the car, and we’d drive into the country looking for wild apple trees alongside the road. With the apples we picked, she’d bake this strudel, our traditional fall Sunday-morning breakfast.” —Beth Dauenhauer, Pueblo, Colorado
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.

My father, who was born and raised in Vienna, Austria, would tell us stories about how his mother covered all of the kitchen counters with dough whenever she made apple strudel. This recipe is a modern, delicious way to carry on part of my family's heritage. —Sarah Haengel, Bowie, Maryland
"My family loves this Kringle's flakiness and that it's not too sweet; it just melts in your mouth. It makes a beautiful presentation on a cookie platter, cut on an angle along with other holiday sweets."
–Connie Vjestica, Brookfield, Illinois
My failed attempt to make a triple-layer strawberry malt mouse resulted in this scrumptious dessert. I don't use puff pastry often, but it was simple to work with. My husband declared it one of the best desserts ever.
