Apple Crisp IV
I followed this recipe to a T, on a whim, because I had the ingredients. We all thought the end result to be more tart than sweet and very dry in comparison to the juicier crisps we enjoy. I think I will try a different version next time. Thanks.

Aunt Betty's Banana Pudding
I've made this recipe so many times now and have made a few changes here and there. I mostly us banana creme and french vanilla pudding, I do not let it set as the recipe calls for. I buy one extra creamy whip cream and one regular. I mix the regular one in with my pudding mixture and use the extra creamy one for the top layer. Also, I started using mini wafers instead of the larger ones because the mixture preads easier. So, I lay down a thick layer of mini wafers. Pile on half the pudding mixture, spread out bananas, pile on the rest of mixture and spread a thin layer of extra creamy whip cream over the top. Sprinkle with left over crushed wafers. I find that this way calls for more bananas and a slighlty deeper pan than the regular 8x11. Not sure if my way is better or worse, everyone devours it either way I make it. Thanks again for a great recipe! ~Tamara
