Round out breakfast in bed with these yummy muffins from Vineland, New Jersey’s TerryAnn Moore. “I like to serve them warm with cream cheese, orange marmalade or jellied whole cranberry sauce…and a pitcher of mimosas!” she notes.
"I’m a stay-at-home mother with two boys and I enjoy cooking—especially appetizers," shares Tracy Schuhmacher from Penfield, New York. "It must run in the family because my mom served appetizers and desserts exclusively for several Christmas Eve celebrations. Brie is one of my favorite cheeses and this sweet-savory recipe is party-special but especially easy to throw together."
Both attractive and delicious, this flaky tart combines a tender golden brown crust with a sweet filling that might remind you of baklava. It's a holiday favorite at our house. —Patricia Harmon, Baden, Pennsylvania
