When I want chocolate chip cookies, I bake this variation, which is full of other goodies, such as candy and peanuts. The cookies are crisp on the outside and moist and tender in the middle. —Clara Coulson Minney, Washington Court House, Ohio
"My husband and I love homemade cookies, but a full batch is too much," writes Denise Fritz of Ormond Beach, Florida. "So I concocted these oatmeal cookies with chocolate chips and dried cherries. This recipe is for chocolate-covered cherry lovers everywhere!"
Cute and chocolaty, these mini cakes are moist and rich with a crunchy almond crust. "The original recipe was so good that I just had to pare it down, and the new recipe is still delicious without a lot of leftovers," Kendra Doss relates from Smithville, Missouri.
This smooth and creamy cheesecake-like treat is light, sweet and pretty, too. Convenience products make it quick and easy to prepare. “My husband also likes this dessert when I substitute blueberry pie filling,” notes Lanae Powell of McPherson, Kansas.
HERE'S a recipe that satisfies a sweet tooth without any fuss. This wonderful pudding can be served plain or topped with coconut, nuts or whipped cream for a more elaborate finish.

DELICIOUS with ice cream or whipped topping, this dessert is always a welcome treat at our table. We especially like it served warm.
I make this often year-round, but it's even tastier in the fall with newly harvested apples.

I make lots of candies and I often add a few ingredients or leave some out. My great-nephew, Josh, is my taste-tester, and this recipe is among his favorites. It seems that my snack jar is always going on empty, but this gives me great joy. —Marcille Groenke
