  • Torte cake is always a good one and the sugar cookies with the chocolate kisses, although you'll probably be eating just the sugar cookie after the little ones pick off the kiss:)

  • Look for the Terramisu (sp?) recipe on the box of Nilla Wafers--we make it without the coffee and it is excellent:-) We use mini chocolate chips instead of shaving the chocolate. My daughter found it and we have made it several times and people really like it.

  • I make a cherry cheesecake that is too good to be true and it is so simple! It is actually a recipe I got from the Philly Cream Cheese box many years ago and they still print them I think.

    Philly 3-STEP Cheesecake
    Mix 2 (8oz.) pkgs. Philly cream cheese, 1/2 cup sugar, and 1/2 tsp. vanilla with electric mixer until well-blended (smooth). Add 2 eggs and mix again until well-blended.
    Pour into 9" ready to use graham cracker crumb crust.
    Bake at 350*F for 40 minutes or until center is almost set.
    Cool. Refrigerate 3 hours or overnight.
    I add a can of cherry pie filling as the topping, but you can do strawberries or blueberries, if you want.
