Easy French Dip Sandwiches
These were okay at best. I think I would prefer a much fresher au jus.

German Chocolate Pie
There's a little restaurant in my small city that makes excellent German chocolate pie. Well, I just had to try to duplicate it, so that I didn't have to go clear across town anymore to get it. This did not duplicate it, it FAR EXCEEDED it!! This is the yummiest pie and really does taste like German chocolate cake. I loved it. I made it exactly as written and it was perfect. The German chocolate is just a sweet and interesting flavor, much better than regular ol' milk chocolate and the topping is divine. It makes more than plenty of it, though, so I certainly helped myself to a few spoonfuls. Mmmm...delish! The filling is so rich and yummy, it really does resemble a mousse. My first pie crust didn't work for me, so I had to run to the store to get another and bake it and even though the filling just sat there the whole time, it still tasted great! I wholly recommend this recipe for anyone who likes German chocolate cake. This and a cup of coffee would be a match made in heaven. Thanks for the wonderful recipe!

Rick's Special Buttercream Frosting
After reading the comments, I opted to use 1/2 unsalted butter, 1/2 shortening. I do add a bit more salt than it calls for to make up for the unsalted butter, but keep everything else exacly as the recipe calls. I only made 1/3 of this and I still had about 2 cups leftover. I used clear vanilla extract so when I colored it, it came out right. Otherwise perfect!! And don't mind the leftover frosting, because it will be taken care of, trust me!! ;o)
