The wild blueberries on our property spark recipe ideas. When my daughter and I made this ice cream at a Girl Guide meeting, it was well received. Even today, our 10 children, 19 grandkids and 4 great-grandchildren think it tastes great. —Alma Mosher, Mohannes, New Brunswick
When I was a girl, my mother, sister and I made mini cream puffs. Now, instead of several little puffs, I make one big pie for big appetites. Since we're dairy farmers, it's doubly popular!
Our children are 6, 3 and 1.
We usually have a good selection of pies at our neighborhood get-togethers, but I always come home with an empty pan when I bring this classic. Friends line up for a creamy slice, topped with golden meringue and toasted coconut.

Shortly after we married, my husband asked if I would bake up a pan of brownies for him to take to work. I said, "Sure—I have the best recipe." He liked to cook, too, and said hehad the best recipe. To settle the matter, we each baked a batch and let his co-workers decide. My recipe won!
I make these bite-sized treats as holiday gifts for friends—and I get lots of thank-you notes in return. The mailman doesn't mind delivering them, though. He gets a box of candy, too! We have three generations of family working together on our dairy farm in the "thumb" of Michigan. Everyone agrees these milky morsels promote our product deliciously.
Who wouldn't want to find a jar of this simply delicious cookie mix, loaded with cranberries, walnuts and shredded wheat, under their tree as a gift? Be sure to include a list of added ingredients and instructions for quick baking. Yum! —Sarah Wilson, Republic, Washington
Fetch the forks! Guests will be eager to dig into this festive tart. Destined to become a favorite holiday dessert, it looks and smells as delightful as it tastes. —Bernice V. Janowski, Stevens Point, Wisconsin
Friends look forward to receiving a gift of these crescents. They're my all-time favorite cookies. The pastry is tender and flaky, and the vanilla flavor comes through beautifully. —Betty Lawton, Pennington, New Jersey
