Lemon flavors sparkle throughout this cheesecake, from the crust to the filling to the topping. Build up the edges of the cheesecake to keep the lemon filling right where you want it. —Karen Chesnut, Clarksburg, California
I make these bite-sized treats as holiday gifts for friends—and I get lots of thank-you notes in return. The mailman doesn't mind delivering them, though. He gets a box of candy, too! We have three generations of family working together on our dairy farm in the "thumb" of Michigan. Everyone agrees these milky morsels promote our product deliciously.
Who wouldn't want to find a jar of this simply delicious cookie mix, loaded with cranberries, walnuts and shredded wheat, under their tree as a gift? Be sure to include a list of added ingredients and instructions for quick baking. Yum! —Sarah Wilson, Republic, Washington
This is the dessert I make when I'm craving something cool and fruity. It's a lovely ending to any meal. The cream cheese adds zing to the fluffy filling. —Elva Roberts, Summerside, Prince Edward Island
It wouldn't be fall without pumpkin bars, and I think everyone has a favorite version. I based this recipe on one of my grandmother's, so sweet memories are baked into every batch. —Mary Wilhelm, Sparta, Wisconsin
You can speed up this recipe by using a store-bought pound cake or baking and freezing one ahead of time. The sugared pecans can also be prepared in advance and stored in an airtight container.—Becky McClaflin, Blanchard, Oklahoma
The "ABC" in this recipe's name comes from the apple, blueberries and cranberries it uses. The other part refers to the way the dumplings "slump" during cooking - presumably the sound made by the fruit as it bubbles on the stove.
I've take my slump to work, picnics and church carry-ins. No matter where, the result is the same...all that I ever bring home is the empty dish.
-Becky Burch, Marceline, Missouri
My mom often made these cute cupcakes when I was young. They go over just as well now when I bake them for our three children. My husband and I raise grain and cattle-and in my spare time, I enjoy needle crafts, woodworking and reading.—Lorelie Miller, Benito, Manitoba
The inside scoop on this tasty treat is the white chocolate center, which makes for an especially rich dessert appropriate for celebrating New Year's. Carol Staniger of Springdale, Arkansas serves it when company calls and at holiday meals.
