Apple Cake V

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2008
Excellent. Moist dense cake. I forgot to add the nuts, so I just pressed nuts into the top of the batter and after baking I put on the cooked topping. It made an excellent crunchy topping. I'll make this mistake again.

Raspberry Oatmeal Bars

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2008
Excellent and easy. Everyone loves the recipe! I used marmalade and called them marmalade bars (that the only jam I had.) They were a perfect bar with coffee at our morning coffee group. Note I didn't use the water. I just stirred jam with a fork. I have made this several times and now only grease sides of pan so jam won't stick. Plenty of grease in base so that part never sticks.

Fudgy Chocolate Cream Pie

Reviewed: May 5, 2008
This was excellent! I added extra 2 tsp. cornstarch and 1/2 c. milk to make enough to fill pie. Another reviewer said it was very thick. So by using just a bit more cornstarch and extra milk it was perfect and cut really neat slices. Cornstarch is unique in the way that when you bring to a hard boil; than boil for 1 min longer the filling is perfect. If you overcook it, it will go back to thin!!!I made this for my coffee group and they gave it 10 stars!

Rhubarb Stir Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2008
Beyond excellent! Only thing different was I omitted sugar and nutmeg to the top. In place I put the nutmeg inside. For a topping I made a mix of butter confectionary sugar, a tad lemon juice and 2 Tbsp. strawberry jam. I spread it on the warm cake (not hot) It just a bit more than a glaze and was a wonderful compliment to the rhubarb. Next time I will add a crumble top and use for a coffee cake. It was gobbled up in no time at all. Two from are coffe group that don't eat rhubarb loved it!

Rhubarb Sour Cream Pie

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2008
Excellent! It was just as described. I had to bake it 15 min. longer as I used frozen rhubarb. I covered the crust the last 15 minutes so the crust wouldn't get too brown. I'm looking forward to makeing this pie next year with fresh rhubarb! My coffee group loved it. (even the guy who doesn't like rhubarb had 2 pieces.)

Sweet Potato Pie I

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2008
This was so darn good! Just a note; I do this same idea with pumpkin pie. I pre- bake my crust for ten minutes before pouring in the filling. I first prick the pie shell with a fork so it doesn't puff up.(no it doesn't leak with filling in it)I than pour in filling and bake as directed. I always cover my crust for half the baking time.Then remove the "crust covers" and continue baking till filling is set. This way your crust doesn't over brown and good to last crumb! I did what someone else suggested and used can milk and mostly brown sugar and cut back about 2 Tablespoons of sugar. I boiled fresh sweet patatoes in their skin. Cooled them and put in food prosser to make it creamy. I used 2 c. of sweet potatoes. The pie was creamy,the texture was just the right, as was the sweetness. Pie baked in 50 minutes to perfection! I have my own wonderful pie crust recipe I use. This will be my only sweet potato pie recipe!

Paul's Pumpkin Bars

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2008
Smashing recipe! These are so moist. I like making the night before so the flavors mature. Used 1/2 white and 1/2 brown sugar. Used everything else as specified in recipe except for the frosting. I prefer browned butter icing. I have a favorite recipe I use. I took them to my coffee group and they were devoured in no time. NOTE: I cut cooking time by 5 minutes. Test with tooth pick.

Chocolate Supreme Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2008
This Pie is really good. I added my twist. I chose the recipe to bake because it sounded simple and I could dress it upfor company. I love the combination of caramel, chocolate and pecans! I used semi sweet chocolate chips in place of the milk chocolate to cut the sweetness. I used a homemade pie crust with 1/4 cup Carmel spread over a baked crust and 1/4 cup chopped pecans. I than put in the filling. I frosted with whip topping and drizzled another 1/4 cup caramel sauce and sprinkled 1/4 cup chopped pecans. A small serving brings a satisfied smile!

No Bake Peanut Butter Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2008
Lip licking good! I did this with my favorite chocolate cookie crust. I use 1 1/2 cups crushed chocolate cookies. Mix with 6 Tablespoons melted butter. Pressed in 9" pan. Set aside while making filling. I only use 1/4 cup milk. Every thing else the same. I put halfs of a peanut butter cups pin wheel fashion (cut side down)around pie edges. When I serve I drizzle with hot fudge sauce. Each slice gets a peanut butter half.

No Bake Pumpkin Pie II

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2008
Great light flavor pumpkin pie! I actually made 6 mini pies. I melted some caramel sauce and spread it on bottom. I sprinkled a few pecans on top of the sauce. After filling; I topped with a few more chopped pecans. When I served the pies, I put on whip cream and drizzled a bit more caramel sauce. I used a fondant leaf for decorating each mini pie.

Mom's Pie Crust

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2008
I admit to using shortening. I thought I had butter. I didn't. I forgot the sugar too! But it was a great mistake! This crust was so tender. I filled it with a no bake pumpkin pie from this sight. Got all rave reviews. The secret of any crust is not to handle the dough. I use a spatula to gather it together. I dump dough on a lightly floured pastry cloth and using the corners of the cloth and pull it together. I just roll dough out and aside from turning; I haven't handled the dough. The warmth of your hands make crust tough. Practice makes perfect. I make at least 2-3 pies a month!

Sara's Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2008
I used all brown sugar. I removed allspice as I don't care for that spice. I also cut ginger and cloves to 1/4 teaspoon each. I like the pumpkin flavor to shine. Cloves has sharpness to it. It can take away from the pumpkins delicate flavor.

Easy Pumpkin Cream Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2008
My coffee group loved this pie. This is a really good pie but I don't have room to freeze. So I did add an extra instant pudding and used only 1 cup of whip topping folded in. It was firm enough to cutand nice light chiffon texture. This pie has a mild pumpkin flavor; not like a baked pie which is intense in flavor. I didn't use pumpkin pie spice. I prefer using 1 teaspoon cinnamon, 1/4 teaspoon each nutmeg, ginger and 1/8 teaspoon cloves.

Hummingbird Cake I

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2008
This was a delightfully different cake. It is moist and dense. I too mashed the bananas as suggested by another reviewer. I also cut oil by 1/4 cup as sugested by several others. I used a thin brown butter frosting and poured over warm cake. As it ran off the cake I kept drizzling the "run off" back on. It is a favorite frosting.

Sunday's Apple Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2008
Very good apple pie. I did double the apples and sugar; than put in a 10" shell. I did not double the flour,cinnamon or butter and it was great and very juicy. I like piled high apple pie. Pie making is my most favorite thing to do! I like to decorate with the extra pie dough.
