I serve this biscotti at my tea parlor and explain to guests that "dunking" is quite appropriate. Friends love it when I put the dry ingredients in a jar, attach the biscotti recipe and give it as a gift.

I don't prepare dessert often but this pie is one of the exceptions. Sugar-free pudding, a reduced-fat graham cracker crust and a few other items keep the fat and calories down, but no one guesses that this sweet treat is lighter than other desserts.—Vickie Madrigal, Shreveport, Louisiana
These tarts are as pretty to look at as they are good to eat! Crispy tortilla cups are filled with cream cheese mixture and topped with fresh raspberries. They're also delicious with sliced strawberries.

As a busy lawyer, I can't take my sweet time making ice cream treats. So my girl-friend and I came up with this one. The recipe cuts down of fat but not on flavor. I usually keep a bunch in the freezer.

From Pickerington, Ohio, Donna Schweighofer sent the recipe for this pretty meringue pie that stars grapefruit, orange and lemon juice. "I made several changes to lighten up the original recipe," she notes, "This pie has a very fresh citrus flavor and the filling tastes nice and rich."
These makeover brownies are still rich and moist and full of the chocolaty goodness of the original recipe. The changes cut the calories by more than a quarter, fat by nearly half and saturated fat and cholesterol by about 60%.—Taste of Home Test Kitchen, Greendale, Wisconsin
"I created this easy reduced-fat take on cheesecake for my mom, who loves chocolate but not the calories," reports Theresa McEndree of Hall, Montana. "People can't believe it's light. Just one small slice will satisfy your sweet tooth!"
With its creamy lemon filling and cinnamon-enhanced graham cracker crust, this lovely pie is always popular. "I like to garnish the whipped topping with pretty lemon peel curls," notes Maria Dygert of Auburn, New York.
