Ooey-Gooey Cinnamon Buns
Yum! I used this recipe to make cinnamon buns (w/o the sticky goo). I've never made them from scratch before so I was a little nervous but they turned out very nicely. I did everything in the recipe except the part where you make the sugar/butter/pecan stuff. Just put the cut rolls in a buttered dish, let them rise, and then baked them. I glazed them with a little maple syrup when they came out of the oven. So so good! Oh and I added a little vanilla to the milk mixture out of habit but I'm not sure if it really made a big difference. Thanks for the great recipe! Will be making again! Would like to try the gooey buns next time.

Uncooked Banana Pudding
AMAZING. So yummy. I love the sour cream in this, it gives it a little tang. I also tossed my banana slices with lemon juice to keep them from browning. I was worried they would taste sour, but they were good. I layered all ingredients in a trifle bowl, and had extra whipped topping so I layered that in too, and on top. Sprinkled nutmeg on top too. Let it sit for a couple of hours in the fridge and the cookies were perfect, mostly soft but still a little crunchy. Thank you for such a great recipe! Way better than making tons of banana bread to use up all my bananas!

Big Soft Ginger Cookies
These are AMAZING. So delicious. I used butter instead of margarine. They have a nice little crisp on the outside, and very soft and chewy on the inside. Just perfect. The only little criticism I have, is that they were a little too sweet. I think next time I will reduce the sugar to 2/3 cup, because you are adding extra sugar on the outside. Thanks so much! I couldn't stop eating the dough!
