Christmas is the perfect time to treat your family and guests to a luscious pie with chocolate, cherries and nuts in a creamy vanilla mousse. It's a sweet yet refreshing dessert. —Dorothy Pritchett, Wills Point, Texas
Topped with a rich buttery sauce, this fruity molded pudding was an ideal end to our meal. The traditional dessert brought back memories for many whose mothers and grandmothers prepared similar delicacies.
—David Bostedt, Zephryhills, Florida
"KUCHEN IS a filling dessert for this German meal. It's not too sweet, and you can use virtually any of you favorite fruits. As a child, I took great pride in arranging the fruit in the pan. We always made this dessert on the same day of the meal so it would be warm and fresh. A dollop of whipped cream on top was an added treat!
"APPLES WERE plentiful in our area, so they were the staple of many of the desserts served at our table. This apple recipe was one of my mom's favorites. Today, it reigns supreme in our family as the choice dessert. Warm or cold, it's a treat every time!"
I grew up in a family with eight children, and I started baking for our big family at age 10. Today, decades later, I still enjoy baking pies, cakes, strudels and bars. These date treats are very easy to bake, and one sheet of them will yield 48 good-sized bars. I sometimes add nuts, coconut or candied fruit. This dessert is great to take to a church bazaar or any group function. In the 1940s, I managed a Pittsburgh school cafeteria that fed 420 students ever day, so I can recall a thing or two about how to feed a crowd! —Dorothy DeLeske, Scottsdale, Arizona
"We have four very productive apple trees in our backyard, so I make a lot of recipes that call for apples. Even then, we'll often end up giving bushels of them away. This apple dessert is one of my family's favorites. If you're serving a larger group, I've found that it goes a little further when cut into squares rather than slices like a traditional apple pie."
This dessert has long been a favorite with my family. I especially like the fact that it requires no baking—and who doesn’t melt for the combination of peanut butter and chocolate? —Ruth Blair, Waukesha, Wisconsin
This delicious trifle recipe was my grandmother's. I remember Mother telling me stories from her girlhood—especially how her mother would make an enormous dish of this dessert for Saturday night dinners, when they often had guests. If there were leftovers, they'd have that trifle for dessert every night that week until it was gone! Nowadays, on our dairy farm, this recipe always goes over big with my husband and six children.
