Chef John's Caramel Apple Pie
To make the caramel sauce thicker, add 3 Tbsp of flour to the melted butter(roux) before adding the water and then sugars. The apple selection is critical when making a good apple pie. If your pie turned to soup or mush or collapsed it was the fault of your apples NOT this recipe. Granny Smith might be too tart and firm for some. Try Winesap, Braeburn, Pink Lady, Gala in season. Firm, sweet, spicy. Not soft. I know many people that swear by golden delicious but I have never had them make a good pie. July apples make for a great pie during the summer months.

Cranberry Hootycreeks
I didn't make these as a gift but for immediate consumption. I like to really cream my butter and sugars around 10 minutes. If I were making these as gifts I would do as one reviewer suggested and keep the sugar separate from the other ingredients. I used all brown sugar because we were low on white. I also doubled the recipe in order to fill the cookie jar. A great chewy/crisp combo. We are now planning on making these as Valentine Gifts.
