Not your ordinary birthday cake, this dessert requires almost no countdown-just start with a purchased ice cream cake roll, then frost and decorate it for takeoff. (We used construction paper to make the rocket's fins and cone.)
Jeanie Beers of Montgomery, New York notes, "Even adults like these refreshing, fruity snacks. And they're so easy to make-kids can spoon the fruit cocktail into plastic cups in a jiffy. The hard part is waiting for them to freeze!"
"This refreshingly fruity dessert is one of our favorites," writes Lynn Marie Frucci of Pullman, Washington. "It looks so beautiful layered in a glass bowl that people will think you fussed. The secret is starting with a purchased angel food cake."
Who ever thinks of making dessert in a slow cooker? This old-time favorite goes together quickly, and it's such a treat to come home to the aroma of cinnamon baked apples just like Mom used to make! —Pat Sparks, St. Charles, Missouri
"The old-fashioned taste of these crisp, peanut buttery cookies is irresistible," reports Jessie MacLeod of St. Stephen, New Brunswick. "And they're as quick to make as they are to disappear. I often double the recipe."
Susie Wingert from Panama, Iowa, shares this recipe for chewy treats big on taste but needing little effort. "They are handy to make when the weather is hot," she comments, "since the oven never has to be turned on."
"No one will know this fancy dessert started with a handy boxed cake mix," assures Sandra Castillo of Watertown, Wisconsin. "We enjoy the scrumptious treat throughout the year for special dinners, potlucks and even picnics."
"For a heavenly light and fluffy frosting, you can't top this cooked version," jots Georgie Bohmann of West Allis, Wisconsin. "You'll definitely want to lick the beaters after whipping up this modern variation of the classic 7-minute frosting."
