I made this fun and flavorful treat for my son's first birthday. He just turned 33, and he still has to have his favorite cake. Kids of any age have a hard time turning down peanut butter and jelly-especially when it comes tucked into cake and frosting!
A neighbor gave me this recipe when we first moved to this small town, saying it dated back to the 1800s and everybody in the area made it. I soon discovered why when I took a taste...and I'm not a fruitcake fan! —Lorraine Groh, Ferryville, Wisconsin
Sugar cookie dough makes a fun foundation for this fantastic fruit pizza. The tender crust complements the sweetened cream cheese and colorful "toppings". After you serve up the last slice, be prepared to make another pizza.
Shortly after we married, my husband asked if I would bake up a pan of brownies for him to take to work. I said, "Sure—I have the best recipe." He liked to cook, too, and said hehad the best recipe. To settle the matter, we each baked a batch and let his co-workers decide. My recipe won!
Lemon flavors sparkle throughout this cheesecake, from the crust to the filling to the topping. Build up the edges of the cheesecake to keep the lemon filling right where you want it. —Karen Chesnut, Clarksburg, California
I make these bite-sized treats as gifts for friends—and I get lots of thank-you notes in return. The mailman doesn't mind delivering them, though. He gets a box of candy, too! We have three generations of family working together on our dairy farm in the "thumb" of Michigan. Everyone agrees these milky morsels promote our product deliciously. —Kathy Dorman, Snover, Michigan
Who wouldn't want to find a jar of this simply delicious cookie mix, loaded with cranberries, walnuts and shredded wheat, under their tree as a gift? Be sure to include a list of added ingredients and instructions for quick baking. Yum! —Sarah Wilson, Republic, Washington
This is the dessert I make when I'm craving something cool and fruity. It's a lovely ending to any meal. The cream cheese adds zing to the fluffy filling. —Elva Roberts, Summerside, Prince Edward Island
