Chocolate Truffle Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2012
I've made the cookie 3 times but each time the dough spreads out to yield a rather flat biscuit instead of a nice cookie. Can anyone tell me what I am doing wrong? I did refrigerate the cookie dough overnight, but they just spread out within a minute or so of being in the oven. I resorted to putting the dough in mini patty tins in the end to get a cookie shape. I would give 5 stars for taste but downgraded to 4 stars because of this 'flattening out' problem.

Cranberry Hootycreeks

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2011
I don't really have a sweet-tooth, so I found these cookies to be WAY too sweet! I overlooked that the cranberries and chocolate chips would add to the sweetness. Otherwise I would have cut down on the amount of sugar. If you prefer savoury to sweets, I would suggest cutting down on the sugar and choc. chips portions and increasing the nut portion. I still give this 4 stars though for the novel gift idea.

Peanut Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2011
Four stars for the cake - it is certainly moist and fluffy although not quite chocolate-y enough for my taste; but five stars for the frosting! I made it for my sis-in-law's birthday. The entire family loved it and there were requests for the recipe. Changes I made - I cut down the sugar in the cake by 1/4 cup. As for the frosting, I creamed the butter and peanut butter together first and slowly added the icing sugar till I got the sweetness that I wanted. It certainly did not need the amount of sugar stated. I also found that I did not need to add any milk at all - the frosting would have been way too runny.
