I'm frequently told these festive individual desserts are too pretty to eat! Phyllo dough is easy to work with - don't be afraid to try it for these special treats. With the bright red raspberries, these creamy cheese cups make a fine finale for Christmas dinner.

This delicious fruity dessert comes from my German background. Mom always called it "Rote Grütz." We had a large raspberry patch, so she served it often in summer, when fresh berries were in season. —Marie Baumgartner, Stoughton, Wisconsin
This recipe was a favorite of my Grandmother's and now it is a favorite of mine. The molasses and raspberries have a wonderfully smooth taste and the molasses is not overpowering.—Mary Muckey, Muskegon, Michigan
Raspberries are such a sweet and flavorful berry that is perfect during the summer time. This recipe can also be made in the winter with frozen berries.—Taste of Home Test Kitchen, Greendale, Wisconsin

This rich fudgy brownie recipe makes a lot, so it's perfect for parties. Guests will think you fussed over the raspberry sauce drizzled over each wedge, but it's easy to make. "Working in a restaurant, I prepare this dessert from special-occasion menus," says Denise Elder of Hanover, Ontario.
Allene Bary-Cooper, Wichita Falls, Texas writes, “This decadent dessert is a taste of Heaven. The hot mixed berry topping seeps through the brownie layer into the cool vanilla ice cream for a zippy chilled cake. Yum!”
