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
IT ONLY TAKES MINUTES to get this cake into the oven. It's one of my favorite desserts.
I love serving this treat to guests, and it's also one of my grandchildren frequently request I make for them.

THIS instant dessert satisfies my sweet tooth in about 10 minutes! There's no crust to prepare and no need to use the oven. It's just right for two, so there are no leftovers to tempt me later.
I was inspired to create this recipe to make a very simple dish and to save time.

THIS PUDDING has been our family's favorite dessert for Thanksgiving and Christmas for 65 years...and it's still on the menu.
At Christmas, I top each serving with a touch of green-tinted whipped cream and a red maraschino cherry.
Whenever I bring this pudding to a potluck supper, it gets rave reviews, along with requests for the recipe.

I HAVE no idea where I got this recipe...the card is yellow with age! The dense chocolate taste makes it rich with flavor, and it's a satisfying dessert topped with ice cream or whipped cream.
I'm pleased to share one of my favorites with Reminisce EXTRA readers!

I WAS fortunate to grow up around fabulous cooks. My mother and grandmother taught me to experiment with recipes, and we tried a lot of variations on this one. No matter how we chose to embellish it, it was always tasty. When I make this, it brings fond memories to mind.

I MAKE this special treat for my family whenever there's a birthday or anniversary. Even without a special occasion, it caps any meal with a festive flair.
I especially like to prepare the brownies in a heart shape for Valentine's Day and garnish them with berries.
-Dottie Miller, Jonesborough, Tennessee
THIS pretty dessert is an impressive end to any meal. Refreshing and light, it's just the right touch for every sweet tooth.
I saw it pictured in a magazine many years ago and decided to try it. It's always been a hit at my house.

YEARS AGO, I found this basic recipe on the label of a can of pineapple. I adjusted it to suit our taste and made it lower in sugar.
This dessert is a refreshing change from the usual apple or berry fruit crisps. It's also easy to fix for two and can be served warm or cold.
