“Scones are comfort food to me, and I wanted to make
a savory version with roasted garlic butter. The addition
of bacon seemed natural. Their cocktail size makes them fun; they also work for a brunch buffet."—Donna Marie Ryan, Topsfield, Massachusetts
I stumbled across this recipe while looking for something different to take to a brunch. Boy, am I glad I did! Everyone asked for the recipe and could not believe it only called for five ingredients. It's the perfect item to bake for an informal get-together. —Traci Collins, Cheyenne, Wyoming
A friend gave me this recipe to make for a breakfast I was hosting. The pan was empty before the breakfast was over! It's one of my most-requested recipes, probably because it's a bit different.

My mother used to make delicious cinnamon rolls when I was a child. Later, she taught my sister and me to make them. I've since added the caramel and pecans. These scrumptious buns are a huge hit wherever I take them.
“My family says our Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner wouldn't be complete without this easy bread. I bake a variety to suit everyone—one plain, one with just nuts, one with raisins and dried cranberries, and one with everything.”
— Priscilla Gilbert, Indian Harbour Beach, Florida
The recipe for this beautiful flavorful loaf came from our daughter-in-law, Karen. She's a great cook. Everyone who enjoys a slice of this moist bread asks me for the recipe. It's super used for a sandwich or just served with butter.

When I created these moist muffins one day with our garden-fresh squash, my 3 year-old son kept asking for more. That batch disappeared quickly... and so did the second one! We especially like the topping of brown sugar and cinnamon, which adds a sweet crunch.
These wholesome rolls are a pleasant addition to any entree. I get so many requests for them at holiday time. I make about 100 dozen in December. Retired from the restaurant business, I have 16 grandchildren.
Meet the Cook: Whether at Thanksgiving, Christmas or New Year's, this is a good party bread. You can't beat it as a gift either...everyone I make it for really enjoys it
My husband and I have a daughter, 3, and twins (a boy and girl) who are 2.

A pretty glaze gives this tender, nutty bread a extra boost of lemony flavor. "I make it at least once a week. For variety, I substitute grated orange peel and orange juice for the lemons. —Laura Comitz, Enoa, Pennsylvania
This gorgeous rye bread has just a touch of sweetness and the perfect amount of caraway seeds. With a crusty top and firm texture, it holds up well to sandwiches, but a pat of butter will do the job, too. —Holly Wade, Harrisonburg, Virginia
