Butter Cake
Perfect little butter cake for a small dessert. I followed the recipe instructions except I separated the eggs and whipped the whites then folded them in at the end. Light and fluffy and moist. Will make again.

Lemon Glazed Cake
I've been making this cake for years. It's the only cake mix cake I still make because everyone loves it. I use a yellow cake mix, increase the water to 3/4 cup, add 1 tsp of the lemon zest (from the lemon for the glaze) and dissolve the jello in the water instead of combining it with the cake mix. The cake gets a slightly more natural flavor using the zest rather than using the lemon cake mix. I also save 1 tsp of the jello powder to use in the glaze. I mix the glaze while the cake is baking so the jello can dissolve in the lemon juice and thicken it slightly.

Apple Pie by Grandma Ople
I finally made this pie today after eyeing it for the past year. YUM! It's a winner! I made it exactly as the recipe stated except I used apple cider instead of the water in the sauce and turned the heat down to 325 the last 15 minutes. I didn't want the sauce on the crust to get too brown. I turned off the oven and left it in for another half hour because, at that point, the apples were still too crisp for my taste. It looked just like the cover picture when I finally took it out. It is pretty juicy, so it's best to let it cool completely, at least 4-6 hours, before cutting into it. It will still be a little runny, but not too much. I used jonagold apples and the texture was perfect, tender-firm but not crunchy.
