Snickerdoodles III
This recipe needs help. I'm not understanding why it has many good reviews. I followed the recipe exactly and the dough was way too dry. I ended up adding an extra 1/4c of butter and the dough came together better. The cookies looked good coming out of the oven but the texture is just too dry. Also, you need to press these cookies down otherwise they will remain in ball shape because they don't spread. I won't be using this recipe again.

Followed this recipe to the T. They didn't pop and were dense, not eggy and light. They turned out like corn muffins minus the cornmeal. I would never try this recipe again.

Apple Pie by Grandma Ople
This pie was very watery and I followed the recipe to a T. I don't feel 3Tb flour is nearly enough. It's very sweet too. I'll not be using this recipe again.
