This tender, moist cake is full of old-fashioned comfort, and the yummy brown sugar sauce makes it special. For a festive occasion, top with a dollop of whipped cream. —Debi Benson, Bakersfield, California
You'll love the smell in your kitchen—and the smiles on everybody's faces—when you make this scrumptious pie that's drizzled with caramel sauce. It's takes me back home to Virginia and being at my granny's table. —Gloria Castro, Santa Rose, California
When I go to potlucks, family gatherings or on hunting and fishing trips with my husband and son, this cake is one of my favorite desserts to bring. The flavorful cake stays moist as long as it lasts, which isn't long! —Marilyn Paradis, Woodburn, Oregon
It's a caramel apple, cheesecake and streusel-topped apple pie all rolled into one irresistible dessert. If you can’t resist a “taste test” before a party, just arrange them on a serving platter and no one will know a piece is missing from the pan! —Katherine White, Clemmons, North Carolina
I found this recipe in a box of Quaker Oats about 20 years ago. It's quick, and easier to make than pie. It's versatile, too, because you can add strawberries in spring or apples in fall. I usually pop it into the oven shortly before we sit down to eat so it's still warm for dessert! —C.E. Adams, Charlestown, New Hampshire
My most-often-requested dessert, this exquisite cheesecake with apples, caramel and pecans wins me more compliments than anything else I make. My husband's co-workers say it's too pretty to cut...but agree it's well worth it to do so.
