Holiday Meringue Dessert

THIS RECIPE was featured in one of Grandma's favorite cookbooks from the '50s. It's become our traditional dessert for Christmas dinner and seems appropriate for the season since the meringue shells look like mounds of snow. Whatever the topping, it's very festive. -Catherine Morrison, Newport, Pennsylvania

I'VE HAD this recipe for years. It's economical to make, yet results in a delicious cookie. At Christmastime, I invite my grandchildren to join me - it makes a simple baking experience for them.

THIS is an old recipe my mother used. With seven children in the house, she made larger quantities, but I adjusted the ingredients to be just right for the two of us. Its "snowy" look makes this a perfect dessert for the winter months. -Ruth Ann Stelfox, Raymond, Alberta

THIS recipe caught my mother's eye back in 1925. It appeared in the local newspaper published in Jamaica, New York. Dad bought a paper every day so he could read while commuting on the El train. It quickly became my brothers' and my favorite dessert. -Louise Stuhr, Chatham, New Jersey

THIS RECIPE has been in my files for a long time...probably from when I first learned to bake. Any chocolate lover will like these melt-in-your-mouth cookies. I make them year-round with variations. They're even richer with a thin coat of icing or as a sandwich cookie with frosting in the middle. -Sarah Bueckert, Austin, Manitoba

CREATED by my husband's cousin, this salad appeared in her church's recipe book. Since it's quick and easy to prepare, I make it often for my husband and me now that we're "empty nesters". It's light and attractive. -Nancy Vavrinek, Adrian, Michigan

Fresh Strawberry Sauce

THIS SAUCE was first served to me by my mother, who was a wonderful cook. During these months when strawberries are so plentiful, I like to keep this sauce on hand so I can improvise a delightful dessert for just the two of us. It's delicious over ice cream or angel food cake. -Joyce Courtney, West Chester, Ohio

THE EXTRA TASTE of peanut butter in the middle of the cookie is a delicious surprise the first time you bite into one. It's a nice, soft cookie and fun to make with little helpers. Kids love to put that extra dab of peanut butter in the middle and snitch some at the same time. -Jeannette Mack, Rushville, New York
