If your family likes granola bars, they're sure to love these tempting treats. Full of hearty ingredients, they're a perfect snack for taking along on picnics and bike trips or for packing in brow-bag lunches.—Carolyn Fisher, Kinzer, Pennsylvania
Rich, moist and chocolaty, this scrumptious cake is very versatile. It freezes well...and the chocolate chip topping makes it easy to pack in lunches and carry along to picnics. At home, we like it topped with vanilla ice cream.
Crisp outside but chewy inside, these sweet sensations will disappear in a hurry. "I home-school our six children," writes Mary Dudek from Alliance, Ohio. "The kids always have friends over, so I like to keep snacks on hand. They love these cookies."
For bridal showers or other special occasions, I often triple the recipe for these moist scones. You can try blueberries instead of chocolate chips and almonds. Or cut the dough into strips like biscotti, bake them and dip them into coffee.
I bake something almost everyday—either in the morning before everyone's awake or in the evening. I whip up these tender muffins in no time and serve them with jam for breakfast or ice cream and chocolate syrup for dessert. —Stephanie Kienzle, North Miami Beach, Florida
Lighter than air, these minty meringues will melt in your mouth, promises Karla Retzer in Grantsburg, Wisconsin. “It just wouldn't be Christmas at our house without these special cookies that everyone can enjoy.”
