Friends have told me these are the best brownies they've ever eaten. That includes one man who ordinarily does not like cream cheese. Since there are peanuts in both the bars and the frosting, nut lovers will clamor for them.

Honey-Nut Ice Cream

One of Tricia Moore's favorite desserts comes together as quick as 1..2..3. It's made with only three ingredients that I always have on hand-ice cream, honey and nuts, she explains from her Somersworth, New Hampshire home. Feel free to vary the measurements and use as much of each ingredient as you like. You could sprinkle on walnuts instead of almonds, she hints. And adding pecans will make you think you're eating pralines. This is such a pretty way to dress up a scoop of ice cream, Tricia concludes. It's a refreshing finishing touch.

"I acquired this delicious recipe some 40 years ago, when my husband and I first moved to southern Iowa and had peach trees growing in our backyard," writes June Mueller from Sioux City, Iowa. "It's been a family favorite since then and always brings back memories of both summer and those happy early years. We like it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and cup of tea."
