Easy OREO Truffles
This may be the easiest and yet glam holiday cookie, yet! I took these to a holiday cookie swap and they were a major hit. To add a modern touch, sprinkle with coarse salt for the salted-chocolate lovers out there. Also try "Golden Oreos" and white chocolate. Great recipe!

Pumpkin Pancakes
I used to hate pumpkin growing up and now I devour anything remotely pumpkin flavored. I made this for my boyfriend and I for breakfast as a pre-Halloween treat. I followed the recipe according to instructions except altered somewhat according to the other reviews: I added an extra egg, a 1/4 cup more of pumpkin, an additional tablespoon of brown sugar (my boyfriend has an insane sweet tooth), and used 2 tsps of Pumpkin Pie spice versus the individual spices. I also found the batter to be a bit thick so I added some water. I also found that the pancakes need more time to cook on each side than normal pancakes (the batter is a bit thicker due to the pumpkin). The flavor was clearly pumpkin but not overly sweet. Almost like a pumpkin muffin in flavor. My boyfriend loved it (he ate 8 at once!) so it is a hit. Easy to make and beautiful end result color/texture.

Grandma's Egg Custard Pie
Can you say: "Super quick"? If you are in a time crunch but need a quick, tasty dessert, then you have found your miracle recipe! This was super quick and easy to prepare. I followed the recipe and tweaked it a little per the other reviewers. I used a frozen pie crust and let it thaw slightly but also poked the crust with a fork and used a egg white wash for the golden crust result. I also added the extra egg yolk to the custard mixture. I used 1% milk and had no problem with texture (and I didn't scald the milk either and just merely blended the ingredients with a hand mixer). The pie was light and not overly sweet and almost flan-like. My boyfriend and neighbor loved it! A winner!
