Chef John's Cheesy Crackers
Made these today and they are delicious but I learned a few things along the way. 1. Make sure your cheese is a warm as the butter, cold cheese is harder to work with than cold butter. 2. Do not re-roll the scraps, makes them tough and chewy, if you're making these for guests just nibble on the uneven ones. 3. Don't bother wasting your time docking them with a skewer five times just poke them twice with the times of a fork, 4. Use your hands to mix the dough, at least for the last few minutes. 5. They're easier to dock if they stay sitting next to each other before putting them on the baking sheet. 6. Do use foil but just spray it with non-stick spray instead of wiping oil all over it.

Classic Tiramisu
Wonderful taste and texture but it made 2 big bowls for me with the amounts listed. Next time I'll cut everything in half. By the way this is a VERY DANGEROUS RECIPE!!!!! Its just too delicious!!!!

Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Cookies
Cakey little poufs of deliciousness!!! Recipe states it only makes 7 dozen but I got just 1 short of 11 dozen. I did add more than 2 teaspoons of ground cinnamon and more than 1 teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice, after adding respective teaspoons of spices I decided it needed more and just shook a good amount from the bottles. I also added some fresh grated nutmeg. Used mini chips and toasted pecans instead of the regular size chips. (I always toast nuts before using.)These will be making repeat appearances throughout the year!!!!
