Restaurant-Style Coleslaw I
I don't know what I did wrong, but this didn't turn out as good as I was expecting. I didn't have any onion or white wine vinegar, so I used a little onion powder and some regular white wine. I honestly don't think that was the problem though, because the reason I disliked the taste was that I found it much too sweet. If I ever make this recipe again, I think I'll leave out the sugar entirely.

Eileen's Spicy Gingerbread Men
The cookies turned out nice but the dough was so difficult to handle, even after chilling it. I added 2/3 cup extra flour to it before even trying to roll it out and it was still too sticky and kept falling apart. In the end I probably used almost 1 and 1/2 extra cups of flour to get this dough to a stage where it would roll out and where I could transfer the cookies to the baking sheet without them falling apart. If I make them again, I'll probably use a little more cinnamon and ginger.

Fruit Preserve Sandwich Cookies
These were nice little cookie sandwiches, but nothing really special. Maybe I just didn't make them right. I doubled the recipe and ended up with about 32 rounds instead of 40. I used splenda instead of white sugar and I didn't have any almonds, so I just added a little almond and vanilla essence to the eggs before combining them with the flour mixture.
