This sugar cookie crumble is like peach crisp with a sugar cookie topping. Since it uses canned peaches, you don't have to save this recipe just for peach season. It's delicious with ice cream. —Teri Rasey, Cadillac, Michigan

This is the only way my kids will eat Brussels sprouts! It’s actually ideal for me because this dish is fast, easy and healthy, and it makes a lovely side. Quick-cooking Brussels sprout halves are available in the prepackaged salad aisle at the grocery store. They’re a timesaver if you can find them, but you can always just buy whole ones and slice them in half. —Teri Rasey, Cadillac, Michigan
