Crustless Cranberry Pie
I made this for a work event, so I tripled the recipe. This comes out more like a cranberry cake, but it is moist and delicious.I tripled the recipe and I used one teaspoon of Almond, and two teaspoons of Vanilla-I think that was the perfect combination. I also substituted sliced almonds for the walnuts. I baked it in a 9x13 pan and it took about an hour as opposed to 40 minutes. I sprinkled sugar on the top prior to baking and it gave it a crunchy sugary topping. I cant wait to make this again, Ill be making it at thanksgiving and probably christmas as well! In fact I have extra bag of cranberries, I might make one tonight! This one is a winner!

Baking Mix Blackberry Cobbler
I made this today with a bunch of blackberries I had to use. Like one of the other reviewers, this recipe is UNGODLY sweet.. I would reduce the sugar in the water mixture to 1/3 of a cup. I would also add cinnamon and maybe some vanilla to the cake mix. Its good, dont get me wrong, but my teeth hurt from eating it!!!

Pumpkin Pie Martini
This was only ok. The use of pumpkin pie spice just made the drink chalky. I think maybe if the pie spice was mixed into the pumpkin puree that would work better. I am going to experiment with this and keep you posted!!
