Mom's Ginger Snaps
These amazing ginger snaps remain my all time favorite cookie, period. They always come out perfect - crispy edges, chewy middle, big spicy flavor, sparkly and round like Martha Stewart made them. Not to mention the batter is tasty. They always get rave reviews and they're so easy to make. I like to play with the kinds of sugar I roll them in, the size of the cookie, and the ingredients (sometimes I add lemon zest or chocolate chips or change the spices). These cookies remain consistently impressive. Thank you for this recipe!

Scottish Oat Scones
I always make this recipe completely with applesauce (no butter at all), brown sugar, dried blueberries, lemon zest, and dried cranberries. They're delicious and pretty healthy, too - 100 calories each (unless I add dark chocolate) and almost no fat. I also took one user's suggestion of soaking the oats in milk and the scones are always moist. They aren't the best scones I've ever had, but the recipe gets 5 stars anyway for being so easy to change. I like eating these by themselves for breakfast.

MMMMM... Brownies
Initially three stars but upped to four because they became much better the second day. I was a little skeptical as I put it in the oven because there wasn't a lot of batter, but it rose. I liked that this recipe only had 2 tablespoons of butter and 1/2 cup of sugar. The brownies looked great, with a nice crisp top, and it only sunk a little as it cooled. They had a nice, fudge-y flavor that hit the spot. The batter itself wasn't too tasty - a little like baking soda - but maybe that was a good thing (: The brownies were great the next day, very chewy and chocolatey. I followed the recipe to a T.
