Cherry Pie with Almond Crumb Topping
I changed it but I thought my changes were worth mentioning since I entered it in a cherry crisp contest and won 1st place (out of 12 or so entries). First it was a crisp contest so I omited the crust. Due to no crust I baked it for 55 min, or until the topping was golden. I added a tablespoon of dark cocoa powder to the filling, and used 1.5 teaspoons almond extract in the filling. Then I sprinkled 1 big tablespoon of mini chocolate chips on it right out of the oven. The judge said that while she prefers tart crisps without anything but cherry flavor mine was just that good to get 1st anyway. 2nd, and 3rd were both tart and were delicious. This recipe has the perfect amounts of flour, oats, almonds, and butter and if you are new to crisps or pies you should watch the video.

Vanilla Half-Moons
These cookies are fantastic. I only made one change to sub coconut oil for the butter since my daughter is allergic to dairy. I did have two problems, one was the same as another reviewer in that the quantity stated is way off. I used a tablespoon measure to make sure they were all the same size. I only got 30 cookies total. The other that was when bending them they kept breaking on me and just didn't want to shape very well to they were hard to form. But the taste is great. I do think in the future I will sift on the powdered sugar instead of trying to roll the cookies in it. It should be easier and prettier.

Wow. I tripled it. Used red kidney because I don't have white. And flipped the fresh/dried (fresh thyme and oregano and dried parsley). Omitted tomato paste (didn't really need it). I also added some bouillon on the advice of the other reviews (this was the main change). And wow this is really good. Even my daughter who normally hates soup liked it and asked me to make it again.
