Chocolate Almond Silk Pie

Chocolate Almond Silk Pie

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.

Sugar Cookie Scarecrow and Pumpkins

To add bushels of fall flavor to your birthday bash, try baking up this cookie scarecrow shaped and decorated by the Crafting Traditions kitchen crew. It starts with Vickie's sugar cookies. "The recipe is a winner with my family and friends," Vickie says. "I am always asked to bring it—or even make it—for people." The scarecrow's easily adapted for other themes besides. For example, try a clown with bouncing balls or an athlete with baseballs instead.—Vickie Wade, Bourbonnais, Illinois

Buggy Gal Birthday Cake

When a birthday comes around, do you scurry to find a dessert to serve that hits the spot? Next time, you won't have to look any further than the appetizing critter our staff of home economists cooked up! Getting this confection off to a flying start is a cinch. Begin by baking a delectably chocolate buttermilk cake—from LaVonne's recipe—in a bowl to form the buggy body. To create the colorful markings, you can use purchased black frosting and a quick-to-make red version. Then dapple the ladybug with vanilla chips, licorice and peppermint patties for details. After following the step-by-step instructions, you'll be ready to set your own mouthwatering miss out on the table...and let folks start nibbling!—LaVonne Hegland, St. Michael, Minnesota

True to its name, this mild chocolate brownie is covered by a cloud of light fluffy frosting. The recipe has earned raves at over table. My husband, a pastor, and I have three young daughters who like to cook as much as I do.

Meet the Cook: Every Christmas, we have a big family dinner. Searching for something to replace heavy pies, my mom discovered this recipe one year. It's since become a tradition that we all look forward to. At our house, my husband and our son, 13, are my "guinea pigs". Both of them love to eat - and I love to cook! -Cindy Cafasso, Barrington, New Hampshire

Lemon Streusel Cake

Whenever friends compliment me on my zesty cake, I say, "Thanks Mom!" Her recipe for Lemon Streusel Cake was among dozens I took with me when I turned 21 and left home. When I was growing up, we had five kinds of fruit trees plus a big garden in our yard. Many times during the summer, I'd be so full from snacking on the "crops" that I'd have trouble finishing supper! Today, I'm a nurse in a large hospital—but my husband and I look forward someday to living in the country.
