Basic Flaky Pie Crust
I previously had horrible luck with pie crusts; they never turned out well. This one however, is perfect: VERY buttery and just the right amount of flakiness. The only modification I made was to use butter instead of shortening. My search for a pie crust recipe is over!

Carrot Cake III
This was absolutely delicious! Even when I accidentally kept it in the oven for too long the second time I was making it, it was still soft, moist, and scrumptious. Thank you for this amazing recipe!

Eileen's Spicy Gingerbread Men
These are literally the best gingerbread men I've tasted. The flavor is wonderful (maybe it's just me, but most gingerbread cookies are tasteless). I only did a few things differently. First of all, I ground the cloves and nutmeg myself (MUCH more flavor) and added about 1/2 teaspoon of allspice and 1/4 teaspoon of cardamom. As I am a cinnamon addict, I added what must have been 1 1/2 tablespoons of cinnamon. I also began to knead the dough with my hands when mixing in the powders as the dough was much too tough and crumbly. I coated my hands continuously with water, which pressed the clumps together. When I was tasting the dough, I was thinking the cookies would turn out with much too powerful of a molasses taste. However, once cooked, these cookies were filled with warming spices and just a slight hint of molasses. This was my first time making gingerbread cookies, and this will definitely be the only recipe I use. Thank you so much!
