Sarah's Applesauce
Was trying to refresh my memory as to how my Mom has made applesauce over the years and came upon this recipe. I really didn't remember her putting in water at all, let alone sugar, but I gave this a try. And then recalled exactly that she didn't add h20 or sugar; this is far too sweet, and really needs no added water as apples let off so much of their own. I did can this, though, for later use (will be great stirred into plain yogurt, or as a side to pork!!) Anyway, in my reprised pot of sauce, I added a mere 1 tbsp of water for 6 apples and a little cinnamon and nutmeg. Perfect.

Triple the Ginger Cookies
I've made these a few Christmases in a row and they're amazing. However to the people who suggested forming it into a log, chilling, then slicing into rounds, I say DON'T DO IT. I tried that this afternoon and it was a disaster; spreads way too thinly in the oven so in the end the whole flat little pancake is overdone. Just stick to the program, form into balls, and roll in sanding sugar. Also, the addition of a 1/2 teaspoon of fresh pepper and the same of cardamom makes it extra tasty!

Apple Pie by Grandma Ople
As others, I made this based on all the glowing reviews, but honestly I don't know how so many people ended up with such perfection. Although tasty-ish (after I added much needed cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla), the pie was sweet & gloopy watery mess. I made it as per the recipe verbatim, it smelled & looked great coming out of the oven, but when we cut in to it some hours later for thanksgiving dinner, we may as well have been cutting into an apple soup. Thank god we had some back-up pies. Argh. Not impressed.
