Apple Turnovers with Custard

I'm almost finished writing my own cookbook. When I was working on the apple section, I knew I had to submit this recipe for the contest. With the flaky turnovers and rich sauce, it outshines every other apple recipe I make! -Leora Muellerleile, Turtle Lake, Wisconsin

Creamy rice custard drizzled with apricot sauce makes a comforting dessert or a refreshingly different breakfast. As a young mother, housewife and substitute teacher, I haven't been cooking all that long, but it's easy to impress people with this recipe since it's simple and delicious. -Elizabeth Montgomery, Allston, MA

Praline Pumpkin Pie

Meet the Cook: For me, baking is a relaxation rather than a chore. This is one of my favorites, a dessert I adapted from a neighbor's recipe for praline chocolate pie. The house my husband and I live in is in the suburbs, overlooking fields. -Sandra Haase, Baltimore, Maryland

Cranberry Pecan Upside Down Cake

Meet the Cook: At our house, cranberries rate as a favorite. This dessert's one that I made for the first time just last fall. It started out as a pineapple upside-down cake - I simply changed a few things around! Because it keeps well and travels well, it's great for taking to church dinners. With our son grown (we have two grandchildren), my husband and I are retired. I enjoy gardening. Our 8 acres are 12 miles from the nearest town and a mile from the nearest neighbor. -Doris Heath, Bryson City, North Carolina

Meet the Cook: I started cooking in earnest as a bride 39 years ago. I'm thankful to say I improved in time - though I made something once even the dog refused to eat! Now, my three children are grown and I'm the grandmother of four. -Joy Beck, Cincinnati, Ohio

Horn of Plenty Pie

I've been making this pie for 24 years, especially during the holidays. Since we live on Cape Cod, we have plenty of access to abandoned cranberry bogs.

Dipped Peanut Butter Cookies

Dipped Peanut Butter Cookies

Baking mix makes these soft, moist cookies a snap to stir-up, yet they're pretty enough for parties. "I'm often asked to bring them to wedding and baby showers, and they're popular around the holiday's, too. I sometimes mix the dough the day before and chill it until I have to bake the cookies."

My husband is a real chocolate lover, so I'm always on the lookout for great dessert recipes like this one, which I found years ago. Who can resist the combination of chocolate cake, ice cream and hot fudge sauce? It gets rave reviews whenever I serve it. —Hildy Adams Alma, Michigan

The line at the dessert table convinced me this cake was a winner when I served it at a party. It makes a pretty presentation, baking up nice and high. The zippy lime and gingersnap flavors really come through.

With tangy dried cranberries tucked inside and a creamy brown butter frosting, these mildly spiced pumpkin bars are doubly delightful. It's a good thing the recipe makes lots, because once you taste one, you won't be able to resist going back for more! -Barbara Nowakowski, Mesa, Arizona
