These golden brown cookies will remind you of German chocolate cake, with chocolate chips and coconut in the batter and a yummy pecan-coconut frosting. A drizzle of chocolate tops them off in a festive way. -Diane Selich Vassar, Michigan

Apple Turnovers with Custard

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

Strawberry Banana Pie

Strawberry Banana Pie

Strawberry Banana Pie

With its sugar-cone crust and layers of bananas and strawberry ice cream, this pretty pie never seems to last long...especially when our grandchildren visit. It's a favorite year-round, but we really enjoy it in summer, when fresh strawberries are plentiful.

Praline Pumpkin Pie

Praline Pumpkin Pie

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

Cranberry Pecan Upside Down Cake

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

Berry Good Ice Cream Sauce

Berry Good Ice Cream Sauce

Berry Good Ice Cream Sauce

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

Horn of Plenty Pie

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

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."

Refreshing Lime Sherbet

Refreshing Lime Sherbet

Refreshing Lime Sherbet

One spoonful of the cool, fresh-tasting and delicious treat and you'll never eat store-bought lime sherbet again! It's terrific following a heavy meal, on a hot summer day or anytime your taste buds are bored.
