I received this wonderful recipe many years ago from a friend. The creamy custard-style ice cream has a mild cherry flavor with a fun oat crunch. It takes some time to make, but it's worth the extra effort!

“During a visit several years ago, we let our 3-year-old grandson, Robert, help trim some two dozen of these Mice Cupcakes I was making for a party. It was quite a project…but he enjoyed every minute!”
These sweet enchiladas from Irene Glembotskaya of Brooklyn, New York are a pleasant change from traditional peach pie--and a whole lot easier. Simply fill warmed tortillas with a cinnamon-peach mixture, then wait for the compliments.
These cookies have been a Christmas tradition in my family since I was a little girl. The big bears are so soft and chewy that we can hardly wait until they come out of the oven!Elizabeth Manzanares, Gloucester, Virginia
Here's a treat befitting a sweet princess! Especially for her daughter's birthday party, Patricia Hill came up with the royal ice cream concoction. "Allison doesn't particularly like cakebut she's a big fan of ice cream," Patricia relates. "So these cone characters were a natural. "Of course, the day of her party last summer was one of the hottest on record. I was sure the ice cream would melt. But the kids devoured the cones before it could!"Patricia Blomdahl Hill, Oakdale, California
I grew up on a farm where we hand-milked cows and had plenty of milk and cream to use for cooking. Sometimes we'd substitute light cream for the evaporated milk in this recipe. We'd rarely let these cookies cool before sampling them, and a batch never lasted a day!
Decorated sugar cookies for dessert delighted the young dinosaur lovers at our party. I had a lot of fun frosting the shapes and decorating them with mini-chocolate chip "eyes" and colorful candy spots to give them character.

The spotlight shines on these confections every time Sharon Kotsovos serves them. "The sugar cookies themselves are so yummy," she attests from Coos Bay, Oregon. "But they're even better when I decorate them."
