Grandma Ople's Apple Pie
This has got to be the best pie I have ever made. I used all granny smith apples and I also mixed most of the sugar mixture into the apples and added cinnamon. then poured the rest on top of the pie along with cinnamon and sugar. The pie was picture perfect and so yummy. will be my new go to pie..

Best Buttercream Frosting
this frosting was good but not the mind blowing, life changing frosting everyone was talking about. It was not very sweet, I like that, and it had an amazing light and fluffy texture that was just yummy, but maybe it was in my vanilla extract that the frosting fell flat for me. It just did not pack that punch that would make this a go to frosting. I will make this again and use different flavor profiles to maybe kick it up some. Tip's: the first time making the flour and milk part the heat was on medium high. that is way to high. When I added the flour it thicken up right away, so there was no time to get that raw taste out of the mix. also cooling it all the way will make the flour milk lumpy when mixing. if this happens start over. it will not work to give you that nice fluffy smooth texture we are all looking for. how I combated this problem. one I warmed the milk on the lowest setting of my stove. then added the flour all at once. mixing the whole time. it wil thicken very fast even on low take off the burner. mix mix mix. then back to the low heat to cook out that nasty flour taste. note if it form's this ball it will be hard to get it smooth. mine was a smooth white roux kind of gummy in texture. cooled for about 15 min. beating it every five min so a skin could not form. Sorry for the long post and I hope this all helps.

Unbelievable Rolls
So I made these rolls today for dinner. Took about 2.5 to3 hour's from start to finish. I do a lot of baking. Im a stay at home mom so baking rolls 2-3 times a week sometimes more is nothing for me I I feel I know my way around. I made two changes. One by mistake and one I meant to. I forgot the instructions call for the butter to be added after you let the milk and yeast sit in the flour for 20-30 min.'s I added mine in the milk along with 2 table spoon's of shortening. Other then that I followed the directions as written. Brushing shortingig on top before puttin in oven. I have found my carbohydrate nervana! Everyone loves then even the dog who sat begging at my feet for a roll. Thanks so much. :)
