I knew these stuffed crescents were keepers when my husband ate most of the filling before I could roll it into the dough. I’ve had to get sneaky now when I make them. —Carrie Pommier, Lakeville, Minnesota
Your guests are in for a sweet surprise when they try this unusual cheese ball…it tastes just like cookie dough! Rolled in chopped pecans, the chip-studded spread is wonderful on regular or chocolate graham crackers. I especially like it because it can be assembled in a wink. —Kelly Glascock, Syracuse, Missouri
These quick hors d'oeuvres may be mini, but their bacon and tomato flavor is full size. I serve them at parties, brunches and picnics, and they're always a hit...even my kids love them. —Kellie Remmen, Detroit Lakes, Minnesota
My friends and neighbors expect me to bring this irresistible dip to every gathering. When I arrive, they ask, "You brought your bean dip, didn't you?" If there are any leftovers, we use them to make bean and cheese burritos the next day. I've given out this recipe a hundred times.

My husband and two kids are sure to eat the first dozen of these cookies, warm from the oven, before the next tray is even done. A co-worker gave me the recipe for the pumpkin dip, which everyone loves with the cookies. —Kelly McNeal, Derby, Kansas
Meet the Cook: I always try to have a supply of these on hand in the freezer. If guests drop in, I just pull out and reheat some.
You can serve them as a snack, for brunch or along with a lighter lunch.
My husband and I have three married daughters, four grandsons and another grandchild on the way.

I first tried these broiled treats at my sister-in-law's house. The juicy mushroom caps and creamy filling were so fabulous that I had to get the recipe. It's hard to believe how simple, fast and easy they are.
No one will ever suspect that this creamy party classic is lower in fat than the much loved original. The combination of artichoke hearts, spinach and Parmesan cheese gives it great flavor.
—Michelle Wentz of Fort Polk, Louisiana
My friends threaten not to come by unless this dip is on the menu! The rich spread bakes right in the bread bowl and goes well with almost any dipper. Plus, cleanup is a breeze.
-Nicole Marcotte, Smithers, British Columbia
This recipe has to be the ultimate in a fast-fixing mini burger with simply fabulous flavor! Creamy mayo, cheese and sweet Hawaiian rolls help tame the heat of the chipotle peppers.
—Shawn Singleton, Vidor, Texas
You won't believe the compliments you'll receive when you greet guests with these warm appetizers. Easy crispy bite offers the savory tastes of feta cheese, tomatoes, basil and garlic. They're terrific for holiday parties or most any gathering.
“My son taught me how to make hummus, which is a great alternative to calorie-filled dips," says Nancy Watson-Pistole of Shawnee, Kansas. "This recipe is simply delicious. Fresh roasted red bell peppers make it really special.”
