Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie
ALMOST perfect...I took some of the other reviewers' advice and only used 3/4 c brown sugar and a tad less of white sugar. I used 1 cup of semi-sweet, milk chocolate, and Andes baking chips combined (wonderful!). The problem I still had...I'm a picky cookie person. When I want chewy, I want chewy THROUGHOUT. The tops of the cookies were supreme. But I STILL had a "crisp" factor on the bottem adges of the cookies. I removed them from the oven as soon as I saw even a slight hint of brown on the edges. I guess I'll have to remove them even sooner next time. Also, to avoid burning or high browning on the bottems, only use the top 3rd of your oven.

Cake Balls
Great idea! I made it with strawberry cake mix and (highly recommmended)cream cheese icing. I wasn't so satisfied with the chocolate portion. First, I melted a whole bag of milk chocolate chips, but they were too thick. The chocolate overpowered the cake balls when dipped. I tried that "candiquik" for the first time and it didn't melt correctly in the microwave. So, I finally did the research melted the chocolate chips again, but mixed about the same amount of shortening with it. It thinned it out perfectly! Only problem is that they're a tad oily after setting. Maybe I'll use less shortening next time.

Autumn Cheesecake
I was a little disappointed with the outcome of this recipe. I followed the advice of reviewers: microwaved apples, 3 cream cheese, 3 sugar, etc. However, the apples burnt on the edges while baking. I had to pull off the burnt ones and simply place my leftover apples on top. And even with the cheesecake ingredient adjustment, the cake was still a little runny. You know what they need to invent? A springform pan that you don't have to wrap in foil to put in a water bath. I had no aluminum foil and I desperately used an alternative. Lol, I tied a plastic grocery sack around the pan. Believe it or not, it actually worked well.
