Pecan Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2010
Wow. This pie is AWESOME! --For those who don't want to read the whole review; either up the cooking time or the temp and use a cream cheese crust.-- The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was the same reason some one else stated: the cooking time was off. I couldn't even tell you how long it really took. At 350, I know it took over 75 minutes. After that I just tossed it back in the oven and checked it once in awhile. As for the flavor, it was closer to 10 stars! I've only made a couple of Pecan Pies before, but this one was the best. My hubby, a self proclaimed pecan pie disliker, mmm'd and ohhhhh'd and wowww'd during the entire piece. A friend of ours said it was the best pecan pie he'd ever had, and promises to be here for Christmas as long as I make that pie. To the pie's credit, I recommend baking it in a Cream Cheese crust. It gave it a yummy cookie type taste. The pie reminded me of my mom's pecan balls that she makes during the holidays.

Cream Cheese Crust

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2010
This crust was amazing! I made a double batch for the Thanksgiving Pumpkin and Pecan pies, and it tasted delicious with both. I followed the advice of others in adding the sugar, salt, and baking powder. I didn't find it necessary to freeze the dough for a few minutes. I also wasn't able to press it into the pans, since it was a little tough coming out of the mixer. (May have been my fault, but none the less.) So I rolled it between the two sheets of wax paper. As for the pies; I know this crust was the key to their success. I made a regular canned pumpkin pie recipe, and even our young children (who "hate" pumpkin pie) loved it. Now; the pecan pie. All I can say is WOW. I used a recipe from here; just a standard pecan pie from what I could see compared to other pies on the site. My hubby, a self-proclaimed pecan pie disliker, gobbled it up. Our friend who was over, said it was the best pecan pie he'd ever had. To me it tasted like the pecan ball cookies my mom makes for the holidays... It had to be the crust.

Chocolate Cake Doughnuts

Reviewed: May 22, 2008
I followed the recipe exactly, and ended up with a strange chocolate goo that more resembled batter than dough. Tasted alright after the attempted frying, but it ended up soaking up a ton of oil. I chucked the recipe in the garbage. No offense, it just wasn't the doughnut recipe I was looking for.

Fluffy Pancakes

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2007
I found this recipe because I was out of Bisquick and wanted pancakes. The only thing I did differently was add about 1/4 cup more milk, since it was a little thick. The pancakes turned out dull and floury/baking powdery. Not a good batch, and DEFINITELY not fluffy. Guess I shouldn't have added the extra milk.....
