Apple Crumb Pie
This is a great recipe! I use Ms. Smith's frozen pie crust which turns out great. Used about 5 large Granny Smith apples but used 1 cut of sugar to help out with the tartness. The pie yes is runny but adding 1-1/2 more tablespoons of flour to the apples definitely helps out with that (it doesn't matter how it looks, just how it tastes!!)

Beth's Spicy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies
Any negative review, you were just doing something wrong....these are the BEST COOKIES EVER! I took them home for Thanksgiving and I was asked for the recipe on 5 different occasions. My boyfriends Grandmother who is the best cook imaginable asked me for the recipe to take to her bridge game, that was the best compliment I could have ever gotten! They also get better each day. The only thing I changed was use one cup of butter instead of 1/2 butter 1/2 shortening and also they are done between 9-10 minutes (no more no less!). Also do not leave out the cloves, that is the most important ingredient!

Snowballs II
I can not tell you how many times people asked for this recipe when I took them to a Christmas party. They were such a hit! Not to sweet & the perfect consistency. Would give them ten stars if I could. The only thing was that I had to shake them in a ziplock bag multiple times to get them coated fully with the sugar...but well worth it. Great for a Christmas gift as well!
