At the root of this treat is plenty of penny-wise practicality. "I first started making the 'logs' after I saw some chocolate-dipped pretzels at a shop," explains Mary Biebl of St. Paul, Minnesota. "They sure were appealing—but the price was outrageous. So I came up with my own version. "Nowadays, I often tie bundles of plastic-wrapped 'logs' with ribbons to give out a Christmas, or I'll set a stack out on a pretty plate for a party."—Mary Biebl, St. Paul, Minnesota

This pie recipe is one I clipped years ago that became a big hit with my husband and three daughters. I've been baking since I was 9 years old. Back then, my friends and I would get together on Saturdays to bake chocolate chip cookies...but we liked the dough so much we ate lots of it raw! Of all the cooking I do today, I think I still enjoy baking best.
