A neighbor shared this pie with me years ago, and now it has a big fan club. I'm always looking for new treats to bake for my family, but this is one I turn to again and again, especially in summer. —Wanda Van Voorhis, Plain City, Ohio

Chocolate Almond Silk Pie

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.

This rich treat is a hit every time I serve it. The chilled filling, brimming with bananas, is refreshing, and the cookie crust provides a chocolaty crunch. Even a small slice will satisfy the biggest sweet tooth. —Taylor Carroll, Parkesburg, Pennsylvania

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!

No problem—just change the cookie cutters to suit the occasion. —Taste of Home Test Kitchen

Take a trip back to the sixties with these sweetly psychedelic cupcakes. Each is a simple white cake, but tinting the batter all the colors of the rainbow makes them funky and fun!— Gwyndolyn Wilkerson, Kyle, Texas

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.
