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
When we have chicken for dinner, I cook extra for these full-flavored roll-ups. Featuring Caesar salad dressing, cream cheese, red pepper, black olives and a hint of garlic, the wraps are perfect alongside corn on the cob and a green vegetable.
I take turns with some of the ladies at church to provide coffee time snacks for adult Bible class and Sunday school. These gooey bars, a traditional St. Louis dessert, are a favorite.

With their chocolate-dipped bottoms, peanut butter thumbprint filling and pretty chocolate drizzle on top, these cookies are fancy and fun! "The recipe is one of my mother's," writes Jennifer Moran of Elizabethtown, Kentucky.
"I love traditional tiramisu," notes Diane Way of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, "but my husband was never crazy about the coffee flavor. So I got a little creative, leaving out the mocha and adding fresh berries. The result was luscious!"
Pretty layers of graham cracker crumbs, creamy filling and fruit topping make this dessert a standout! For a nice change, you can substitute blueberry pie filling or another fruit flavor for the cherry filling called for in the recipe.

Sour cream and cream cheese add delicious dairy flavors to these potatoes. They're special enough to serve guests and can be prepared in advance. Since I'm a busy mother, that's a convenience I appreciate.—Melody Mellinger, Myerstown, Pennsylvania
