I belong to a Christmas village collectors' club and we all bring a potluck dish to our monthy meetings. The cake is always a hit. It's one of my family's favorite Thanksgiving desserts, too, and disappears before the pumpkin pie does. —Debby Powers, Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida
Meet the Cook: As a cold and tasty finishing touch, my husband and I usually put a dip of ice cream on top of this pie. The recipe's from my mother - each year, I make it for Christmas, and then for my sister-in-law's New Year's party besides.
