This version may claim roots in Alberta, but the original was said to be dreamed up in a Nanaimo, British Columbia kitchen. They're three delicious layers of Canadian goodness. —Carol Hillier, Calgary, Alberta

Cinnamon Snaps

Cinnamon Snaps

Since I'm a longtime cinnamon fan, I decided to give traditional gingersnaps a different twist. My husband and son agree I spiced them up just right. We live on a ranch overlooking the ocean and also own a machine shop business.

Meet the Cook: Since he's a livestock truck driver, my husband often starts work around 2 or 3 a.m. A piece of this crisp will keep him going till breakfast. And our two boys - ages 10 and 7 - love to have it for dessert and in their school lunches. -Joanne Korevaar, Burgessville, Ontario

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.

Here's a tasty treat that is a wonderful time-saver. No matter where I take these bars, no one can eat just one and I always get asked for the recipe. They look great piled high on a pretty platter and taste even better.—Bobbi Brown, Waupaca, Wisconsin

Triple-Chocolate Brownie Cookies

Triple-Chocolate Brownie Cookies

Our family of chocolate lovers gets triply excited when these cookies come out of the oven. They have the texture and taste of fudge brownies, and the chocolate chip-based drizzle make them look so tempting.

Meet the Cook: In our family, a meal isn't considered complete without a dessert - or, sometimes, two! This cake does keep well, but leftovers are a rarity around here. -Deanna Carruthers, Mossley, Ontario

Cherry Crisp

Cherry Crisp

Cherry Crisp

The very first time that I made Cherry Crisp, my brother happened to be visiting. He is an ice cream lover—but he passed up the scoops of vanilla that he tops most desserts with so he could taste the cherries better! Wheat, soybeans and milo are the main crops on our farm. We also have three small cherry trees. I apportion all of that harvest for this recipe. My husband's is the manager of a coop. I work part-time as a church secretary...teach piano in our home...and enjoy making clothes for myself and our 3-year-old daughter. Cross-stitch is one of my favorite hobbies.
