Butter Flaky Pie Crust
If you like butter then, yes, this recipe is for you. I think it's a bit heavy and overwhelming.

Apple Pie by Grandma Ople
Update: It's runny and tastes a bit bland. I would add cinnamon or cardamon to this. I used Gala apples because I dislike Granny Smith. Maybe that's why the pie came out runny? I'll be flouring them next time to see if that helps. I will try this recipe again because it didn't taste horrible, it just needs some umph and to thicken up.*** I haven't actually tasted this yet, but I'm leaving a tentative review now for the process. I had to make two batches of this because the first batch turned into a giant ball of sticky gunk that shot hot liquid butter from every orifice after trying to reincorporate the butter and sugar. What went wrong? I think boiling the mixture caused the sugar to harden and separate from the butter. After lots of stirring, and burning my hand, the sugar took on a thick, almost putty-like consistency that swum in a pool of butter. I tried pouring it on to my pie anyway, and it just sat on top, ruining my lattice. Oh well, I should've known better. The next batch I did not let boil, only simmer, and that seemed to work fine. I'm waiting now for the pie to cool before I try it and will update with the results.

Black Forest Cake I
Three things I didn't like about this cake. 1) The cake mix was nothing special (it's basically no better than store bought) and ended up being dry. I had to cut off the outside of the cake because it was crispy. 2) The cherry glaze made from the cherry liquid with cornstarch and 1 cup of sugar was WAY too sweet and had an awful grainy texture from the cornstarch. I do not recommend using any cornstarch at all, just reduce the liquid slowly over the stove. It takes longer but the result is much better. 3) It's very plain. Basic chocolate cake mix, whipped cream, and canned cherry flavor... that's all it is. If I'm spending the time to make a cake from scratch, I want it to be special in some way. This could've been store bought cake. There are much better black forest cake recipes out there. I tried this one because it was less complicated and time consuming, but I realize now that that's what made the other recipe worthwhile.
