Absolutely Sinful Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2006
We were disappointed with this recipe. It does have a lot of potential though. I especially liked how the sour cream blended to create subtle complexities in the taste. The results did turn out cake-like as most of the reviewers said -- could this be due to the amount of baking powder and soda used? The cookies were so soft and ended up sticking to each other in the end. Also, the recipe calls for a lot of chocolate chips (i used only a cup and the cookies still turned out too sweet). We prefer a deeper chocolatey taste. So far, the Mrs. Field's recipe remains my favorite. Might try to revise this recipe in the future to see what works best.

Swedish Apple Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2006
8/2/09 (just adding a few more comments after using this recipe for more than 2 years...) 1) this pie bakes faster than the time indicated (in our oven, it's done in 30-40 mins). 2) we find that using a combo of sweet and tart apples gives a nice balance of taste (we usually use 2-3 galas and 1 granny smith per pie). 3) if using plastic wrap to cover after baking, leave a small opening (this ensures that the pie will retain that flaky/crisp top). 4) btw, for variety, one can try adding a bit of sour cream into the inside of the pie. we usually put just enough liquid to slightly coat the apple slices. 11/23/06 (original review) this pie is so yummy. i followed the suggestion of putting a bit of lemon juice in the crust. also i did half and half brown and white sugar. my family absolutely loves it!
