This coffee cake is a sure hit. I used to prepare it for special occasions only. But now I try to bake it whenever I know overnight company is coming. It's always appreciated at breakfast the following morning.
This recipe is from central Ohio, which is the heart of pumpkin country, so it definitely represents our area! I got the basic recipe from a niece and made a few changes. Now it's one of my family's year-round favorite desserts!
This creamy appetizer, fresh from Raegan Dexter of Union Grove, Wisconsin, features nothing but great flavor. "you don't have to be a carrot fan to enjoy it," she notes. "I like it even more, because it is so easy to fix.!"
The flaky cream cheese pastry adds sensational texture to these hot appetizers—and just wait until you taste the wonderful filling. I usually fix a double batch and freeze some to have on hand in case unexpected guests drop by. — Jean von Bereghy, Oconomowoc, Wisconsin
"When Valentine's Day rolls around, I like to bake these cute muffins in small heart-shaped tins," relates Shirley Glaab of Hattiesburg, Mississippi. "Drizzled with pink icing, they look adorable and taste wonderful."
Tucked into the middle of each moist muffin is a tasty surprise - in the shape of a cube of cream cheese! "The simple filling adds loads of creamy flavor," reveals Denise Nebel of Wayland, Iowa. "The streusel topping is nicely crunchy."
Using fat-free cream cheese, reduced-fat peanut butter, skim milk and fat-free frozen whipped topping, they trimmed down the fat in this fabulous pie. It is every bit as mouthwatering as the original version.—Taste of Home Test Kitchen, Greendale, Wisconsin
"This beautiful breakfast ring is perfect for a special occasion," writes Wendy Fitzgerald from her home in Eau Claire, Michigan. Whether formed into a festive wreath or shaped into two rectangles, it's so yummy that no one will ever suspect the sweet treat starts with convenient crescent rolls.
