Monster Cookies VIII

Reviewed: May 16, 2014
Just finished these and DH found them to be o.k. They were a bit too "cakey" & not very sweet. I think that had to do with the addition of baking powder to the cake mix. I misread the recipe & added 2/3 cups of oats & 1/2 cup butter. I found it to be enough butter because the mixture was quite oily. I used a Pillsbury Classic Yellow cake mix which has pudding in it; omitted the chocolate chips but added raisins instead. Will try again but omit the baking powder & increase the oats as well. I think we were expecting more of a soft chewy oatmeal type cookie. They are a very easy & fast cookie to make.

Apple Spice Dump Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2013
I've been making dump cakes for 3o yrs and NEVER thought to spice them up! I've always used yellow cake mix. Baked this tonight with yellow cake mix as I don't normally buy spice cake mix & WOW! I will now always add the spices. They gave the cake a little pizazz. My husband & granddaughter had 2 helpings each! Will definitely try with the spice cake mix next time. I'm so glad I happened to be looking for something a little different.

Amish White Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2008
I've been baking bread for over 40 yrs but never have baked a simple white bread. This is the best tasting white bread. Hands down, the easiest recipe to make. My husband nor I found this bread too sweet. The only thing that differed from the instructions was the 2nd rising. It took a little over an hour for the bread to rise 1" over the pan. They baked beautifully but stuck to the pans which were well oiled. I believe it's because I baked them in Corning Ware loaf pans. I'll try (as others have suggested)several different ways to use this wonderful bread recipe: half honey wheat,dinner rolls,cinnamon raisin. Thanks Peg for a GREAT reicpe!!
