Lucky Lime Salad

Lucky Lime Salad

Lucky Lime Salad

To start your St. Patrick's Day feast off right, be sure to hand out lucky shamrocks—in the shape of those that top this sweet salad! Making them is merely a matter of cutting gelatin with a cookie cutter. Want to prepare the recipe for another celebration? No problem—just change the cookie cutters to suit the occasion. —Taste of Home Test Kitchen

Macaroon Cherry Pie

Macaroon Cherry Pie

Macaroon Cherry Pie

I use homegrown cherries in this bountiful pie with its unique crunchy coconut topping. But I've found that purchased tart cherries yield a dessert that's nearly as delicious. I always bake this pie around Presidents' Day or Valentine's Day, but it's popular with my family in any season.

Pumpkin Bars with Browned Butter Frosting

I based this recipe on one my grandmother used to make—so sweet memories are baked into every bar. When making the frosting, carefully watch the butter and remove it from the heat as soon as it starts to brown. Do not use margarine.—Mary Wilhelm, Sparta, Wisconsin

Truffle Topiary

Truffle Topiary

Truffle Topiary

This delicious "tree" created from chocolates—is rooted in Elisa Schmidt's generosity. "I wanted to give family and friends something they'd remember," she detailed. "So I whipped up piles of these sweets for everyone." Adding to the fun, the CT kitchen staff turned Elisa's treats into a tree. They took their cue from the way she described preparing those piles of candies in her kitchen. You'll find it easy to do the same for Valentine's ...a birthday...or to brighten a cloudy winter day.

Anniversary Cheesecake

Anniversary Cheesecake

Anniversary Cheesecake

Our test kitchen experts turned out a special treat by using tinted batter to "paint" a picture atop a basic cheesecake. You can follow our design...create your own...or leave it plain. Any way you slice it, this dessert serves up sweetness.

Apple Roly-Poly

Apple Roly-Poly

Apple Roly-Poly

Apple Roly-Poly isn't very fancy, but it's genuine "Down East" fare. It came from my grandmother. With 13 children plus the men at Grampa's sawmill, she had to do lots of cooking each day! My husband and I have four children, 10 to 3. We crop 1,500 acres of corn, soybean, wheat and white beans.

Buttery Almond Pear Cake

Buttery Almond Pear Cake

Pears and almonds make a mouthwatering match in this cake from Lillian Julow, Gainesville, Florida. “It looks pretty with the fruit on top,” she pens. “How can something this simple taste this wonderful?”—Lillian K. Julow, Gainesville, Florida

Cheddar Dog Treats

Any pampered pup will be lucky to fetch these goodies for Christmas. The yummy strips are made with real cheese, which most dogs can’t resist.—Lydia Driscoll, Milwaukee, WI

These rich and chocolaty bars are a hit at church and family gatherings. Folks love the chocolate and cream cheese layers.—Sharon Schaa, Murray, Iowa

Coconut Fruitcake

Coconut Fruitcake

Coconut Fruitcake

We live in a little community of 27—if everyone's home! A neighbor game this recipe when we first moved here, saying it dated back to the 1800"s and everybody in the area made it. I soon discovered why when I took a taste...and I'm not a fruit cake fan! My husband, who's the inventor of a three-point bale mover, and I have a grown son. I'm a crafter and collector.
