These tender cutout cookies have a slight lemon flavor that makes them stand out from the rest. They're very easy to roll out compared to other sugar cookies I've worked with. I know you'll enjoy them as much as we do. —Judy McCreight, Springfield, Illinois
I make lots of candies and I often add a few ingredients or leave some out. My great-nephew, Josh, is my taste-tester, and this recipe is among his favorites. It seems that my snack jar is always going on empty, but this gives me great joy. —Marcille Groenke
This favorite old recipe means a lot to me, since it was given to me by a good friend. That friend, in turn, received it from her great-grandmother. I'm always looking for ways to use zucchini (I even add it to my spaghetti sauce), so this was a welcome addition to my recipe file.
I first discovered this recipe at Christmas a couple years ago, but it's a great way to use frozen cranberries throughout the year. I help out at the elementary school our three sons attend and am active at our church. It seems I'm always baking a batch of these moist bars for some event.

As part of a Mexican tradition, I tucked these tender cookies into small gift boxes for the guests at my sister's wedding a few years ago. Most folks gobbled them up before they ever got home! —Sarita Johnston, San Antonio, Texas
Can't decide whether to bring chips or cookies to the tailgate? These crisp and buttery cookies make plenty for the crowd, and will keep people guessing the secret ingredient. —Rachel Roberts, Lemoore, California
Even as a young girl, I was always going through recipe books in search of something new to make. That's how I came across these brownies, a favorite for our family reunions and other get-togethers. They capture the rich flavor of a favorite cake with a few easy steps. Broiling the sweet coconut topping makes it goey and good. —Karen Grimes, Stephens City, Virginia
Jackie Ruckwardt of Cottage Grove, Oregon writes, "These gourmet cookies are my 'most asked for' recipe." Chockfull of coconut and chocolate chips and dipped in white candy coating, they are truly a chocolate-lover's delight.
Crazy about chocolate chips? This chewy cookie has plenty, not to mention lots of heart-healthy oatmeal. The gang’ll come back for more and more... so this big batch is perfect. —Diane Neth, Menno, South Dakota
