Best Ever Muffins
Amazing Recipe! They came out so delicious. I didn't have much in my cupboard or fridge so I just added a few tablespoons of cinnamon and they came out great. Because I halved the recipe I just used 1 egg white (also to make them lower fat) and I also used skim milk. They're still super rich and delicious. I DID follow the review that said to turn the oven up to make them domed... I probably won't do that again. They didn't dome and they just burned on the bottom!

Shortbread Cookies II
I followed the recipe exactly the only thing I don't have is a cookie press. I'm a very experienced baker and never had cookie dough go this wrong on me! I chilled the dough for 30 minutes before trying to roll it out but it was still very gooey and sticky. It also tore far too easily and my floured rolling pin couldn't even go one stretch before tearing it apart and getting the dough stuck to the *floured* surface. I'm sure this is a great recipe if you have a cookie press. The doug tastes delicious. I ended up pressing it out with my hands and using cutters. This obviously gives sort of ugly uneven cookies but with the amount of butter I used i didn't want it to go to waste. We'll see how they bake! Just a warning to other cookie press-less bakers. I was hugely disappointed. It's also kind of screwed up my Christmas party as I now only have 3 hours to finish off and offer ugly cookies! Haha.

Felix K.'s 'Don't even try to say these aren't the best you've ever eaten, because they are' Chocolate Chip Cookies
These actually do live up to their rather cocky title. I've baked so many different cookies over the years and none of them have ever been as good as the ones you find in a bakery. Some have been close, but these are really amazing!! My friend even went so far as to say they're the best he's eaten (without being prompted!). I halved the recipe and it worked just as well. I think I also made them smaller than the recipe calls for since with 1/2 the recipe I actually still made 20 cookies and they were done in 13 minutes. They stay so perfectly soft and chewy in the middle with a wonderful crunchy edge! I used non-hydrogenated margarine as I really don't like using butter too much because of the cholesterol factors, I also find with cookies it makes them crunchier and thinner. Oh and for the people finding this comes out crumbly - you are probably using too much flour. When measuring flour into cups make sure you spoon it in and level it off, scooping the flour *with* the cup will result in too much flour because it compacts it and so you get more! Also, leaving them on the baking sheet for 20 minutes is a typo I think! I left them for the usual 3-4 minutes as with most other cookie recipes and as long as you're careful (as always) that's plenty long for them to set!
