Creamy Cherry Cheesecake

Creamy Cherry Cheesecake

Creamy Cherry Cheesecake

The inspiration for me to find this recipe was my husband. He loves cheesecake but was tired of the dry types. Up here, all the wilderness we could ask for is right outside our back door—everything from wolves to caribou!

Fancy Fruit Pizza

Fancy Fruit Pizza

Sugar cookie dough makes a fun foundation for this fantastic fruit pizza. The tender crust complements the sweetened cream cheese and colorful "toppings". After you serve up the last slice, be prepared to make another pizza.

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.

My four sons clamor for the peanut butter pie. My mom found the recipe from a farmwife magazine in the 1960s, and now I'm teaching our sons' wives to make it. —Judy Hernke, Mundelein, Illinois

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.

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.

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

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

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.
