Just pop one of these tasty morsels into your mouth for a tangy burst of flavor. If you prefer, make half with just apples and walnuts and the rest with cranberries and walnuts. —Judie Thurstenson, Colcord, Oklahoma
These adorable mini apple pie pastries make a delightful addition to a dessert buffet or snack tray. The recipe calls for convenient frozen phyllo shells, so they're surprisingly easy to prepare. The lemon curd filling adds a unique flavor twist. —Mary Ann Lee, Clifton Park, New York
One of my favorite bakeries makes this scrumptious tart that uses fall and summer fruit, so I created my own version. I like to serve it warm with whipped cream or ice cream and with a cup of coffee on a cool autumn night.—Sarah Knoblock, Hyde Park, Indiana
Meet the Cook: Almost like a pizza, this tart's easy to pick up and eat out of your hand. Kids love it. Like most of my best recipes, it came from my mom. Since it's so pretty, I fix it for fancy gatherings such as ladies get-togethers...but I make it to serve at informal barbecues as well.
We have two daughters, 5 and 2.

These cute bundles taste like an apple pie but without all of the work—no fork needed! The ingredients in this recipe can easily be doubled for when you're expecting a crowd. —Amy Wood, Wichita, Kansas
Apples, potatoes, ground pork and seasonings tucked inside flaky golden pastry never fail to win praise from my family at home and friends at church functions. The assembly requires a bit of effort, but these impressive little turnovers are worth it.
