Whenever friends compliment me on my zesty cake, I say, "Thanks Mom!" Her recipe for Lemon Streusel Cake was among dozens I took with me when I turned 21 and left home.
When I was growing up, we had five kinds of fruit trees plus a big garden in our yard. Many times during the summer, I'd be so full from snacking on the "crops" that I'd have trouble finishing supper!
Today, I'm a nurse in a large hospital—but my husband and I look forward someday to living in the country.
I remember my mom making this pie when I was growing up. I make several while I have fresh pears from the family tree, then freeze them for later. One taste tester declared it “the best pear pie I have ever eaten.” —Paula Hoffman, Plainview, Nebraska
Basic pumpkin pie is good, but we think this dressed-up version is even better. Plenty of pecans add a nutty crunch to the pastry and the streusel topping. It's a perfect dessert for Thanksgiving or any time you want to end a dinner with something special.

After managing to lose 40 pounds, Regina Stock likes to keep a number of healthy recipes on hand. "This cake is a favorite morning snack," says the Topeka, Kansas baker. "It even won a blue ribbon at our county fair."
What a pleasure it is to set out a basket of these rhubarb muffins...although the basket doesn't stay full for very long! I have six children and two grandsons, so I do a lot of baking. The snacks are based on a coffee cake recipe.
If you're a fan of apple pie, you'll be sweet on this delicious ice cream. The creamy concoction is flavored with sauteed apple, cinnamon, caramel topping and a homemade streusel mixture. One scoop just isn't enough!
I love cheesecake & apple pie so I thought this would be a great combination! It has everything that makes an apple pie delicious - apples, cinnamon, and a nice crumble topping plus the creamy-ness of a cheesecake!
