My husband and I are always on the lookout for new ways to incorporate Jewish traditions into our interfaith home. Rich with apples, carrots and sweet potato, this sweet and spicy cake is perfect for Rosh Hashana or any fall holiday.—Molly Haendler, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
We think this deliciously different dessert is a nice change from a traditional apple pie. Who can resist its tender apples smothered in a silky maple-flavored cream? This pie is definitely worth a try.

READY for an outpouring of compliments? You'll get lots when you serve these decadent desserts! "A friend shared the recipe with me after she prepared it for my birthday," Ann says. "She simply covered plastic glasses with melted confectionery coating, let it harden and then removed the plastic to create edible treats." A mouthwatering raspberry mousse completes the candy cups. If you like, add a berry and mint garnish on top.—Ann White, Elkhorn, Wisconsin
Rich and satisfying, these bars create a symphony of flavors with every bite. The nutty crust, exquisite chocolate layer and the creamy frosting make this dessert one of my personal favorites. It's fun to take these treats to a potluck. —Anne Heinonen, Howell, Michigan
