I developed this bread to celebrate our two favorite holidays, Thanksgiving and Hanukkah. Try it with flavored butters, and use leftovers for French toast or sandwiches. —Sara Mellas, Hartford, Connecticut
My husband's Bohemian mother brought a kolachke recipe with her when she came to America. So these rolls are a part of our family's heritage. Other traditional fillings are prune, poppy seed and cottage cheese. —Jan Wagner-Cuda, Deer Park, Washington
“I found this delicious recipe in a magazine years ago and adapted the original to make it my own," recalls Carol Gillespie of Chambersburg, Pennsylvania. "The rich, bite-sized treats are full of cinnamon flavor and great with coffee!”
My husband didn't care for fruitcake (which I love) - till he tasted this one.
He and I have three children. He's an avid fishermen...when others are canning fruits and vegetables, I'm busy canning and smoking salmon!

We love this pretty pull-apart bread, and drop-in company just raves about it. Because it uses refrigerated biscuits, it's so easy and quick to fix. You can try whatever jam you have on hand in place of the marmalade.

Over 50 years, these excellent rolls have never failed me- no matter how I decide to shape them. Once you've tried them, they'll become a mainstay for you, too. There will be no question about what to do with leftover mashed potatoes.

My family and I look forward to warm slices of this citrus-flavored coffee cake every Christmas and Easter morning. It's a tasty traditional we've been doing for a number of years.—Barbara Daniel, Ducor, California
When I make this bread, I almost always have to bake two loaves so that everyone gets a taste!
It's especially good in the winter. In fact, last year when we went to a Christmas buffet at my husband's aunt's house—with a hearty soup as the main course—I took a Reuben Loaf along. It looks so pretty sliced and arranged on a platter, too.
My husband and I are crop farmers with three young children. Cooking—especially baking—is one of the ways I relax, and I al
These buns regularly get packed as part of my husband's lunch! I've copied this recipe for many people—one of the nice things about it is that it also makes very good breadsticks to take to covered-dish suppers or take to picnics.
I like to cook...and taste, too! In addition, I enjoy sewing and all kinds of crafts, and I've been fortunate to win several blue ribbons at Country Fair.
