Chocolate Covered Cherry Cookies II

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2009
This cookie is probably a 5 star cookie if the recipe is followed. I took the advice of some of the reviewers and things didn't turn out so well! First-a second egg will make these cookies more cake like. I made a double batch using 4 eggs and did not like the texture of the cookie at all! Second-definately put the cherry into the cookie before baking! I tried both ways, before and after. You will get a better looking cookie if you put it in before baking. I put 1/2 cherry into the center of each cookie-no thumbprint. The whole cherry was overwelming to the cookie. Third-I iced my cookies after baking. The icing never dried- that must be the reason for baking the icing with the cookie! I made a double batch of cookies and a single batch of icing and still had way too much icing. I used a metal spoon and slowly drizzled the icing over the cookies. On my first batch of icing, I used evaporated milk-big mistake! The cookies did turn out beautiful and tasty. I'm hoping the icing will dry with time. They have been done for 1/2 hr. I will use the leftover icing as a topping for ice cream!

Crunchy Caramel Corn

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2009
This recipe is fast and easy! I used a plastic bowl to melt the caramel mixture in-it didn't get hot like the glass bowl did. It also didn't result in a sticky mess to clean up! I also stired with a plastic spatula. The caramel and popcorn did not stick to the plastic. I didn't have a plastic bowl big enough for the final coating of caramel and popcorn and, yes, the glass bowl got extremely HOT. I will definately buy a large plastic bowl for this step. I used 1 large bag of microwave popcorn per batch of caramel coating. It covered the popcorn perfectly! I ended up making 8 batches of this delicious popcorn to give as holiday treats to my family members. Everyone was delighted with the taste of this recipe. Don't change a thing!
