Chocolate Almond Silk Pie

This pie recipe is one I clipped years ago that became a big hit with my husband and three daughters. I've been baking since I was 9 years old. Back then, my friends and I would get together on Saturdays to bake chocolate chip cookies—but we liked the dough so much we ate lots of it raw! Of all the cooking I do today, I think I still enjoy baking best. —Diane Larson, Roland, Iowa

Almond Fudge Cakes

I teach in a school with three to four teachers per grade. I bake this cake in small springform pans so that each group can grab a cake before school and divide it among themselves later. Sometimes I slice the cakes into three or four slices and fill one layer with strawberry preserves or cherry pie filling. —Carleen Johns, Brownwood, Missouri

Chocolate Glazed Coconut Almond Cheesecake Exps146939 Th2379797a11 14 2bc Rms 6

Chocolate-Glazed Coconut Almond Cheesecake

My idea was to make a cheesecake taste like my favorite candy bar, which has chocolate, coconut and almonds. This cheesecake also works in bite size. Use a mini muffin pan with muffin liners, fill 3/4 full and bake 15-17 minutes. Allow to sit and cool completely before topping with chocolate, coconut and almonds. —Keri Brammer, Lawton, Oklahoma
