One Christmas, my husband—a Navy chaplain for 20 years—had to spend the holiday overseas, away from our two children and me. He asked that I send him this recipe so he could have a taste of home. Steamed Cranberry Pudding has been in my file for more than 30 years. It was passed on by a fellow teacher who was retiring. Her family had long enjoyed it, using their own homemade sorghum molasses as a special ingredient. Chuck and I now live in a log home in a wooded area. We're visited regularly by armadillos, raccoons, wild pigs, deer, bobcats and other creatures. We enjoy watching them—but they make it difficult to establish a compost pile!

At our church, we give seven performances of a Living Christmas Tree every holiday season—then hold an open house after each one, I've served this lemony cheesecake at those gatherings for years, and it's always gotten raves.

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

After tasting it at a bake sale, I got the recipe for this pie from a friend, then adapted it. I make it for family gatherings—it's everyone's favorite treat—and also for when company comes by. Our children—6 and 3—"help" me with baking. They've learned many of their measurement in the kitchen!

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.

Meet the Cook: My sister was hosting an exchange student from Finland not long ago. When she served a plate of these cookies I'd made to her guest, the young lady instantly recognized what they were. So I know they're still being made in our ancestors' country! Both my husband and I are retired teachers, living on the shore of Lake Superior. We have one grown son. -Ilona Barron, Ontonagon, Michigan
