Brooke's Best Bombshell Brownies

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2009
Amazing brownies! I have used brownie mixes for years because I'd never found a recipe that was better than a good mix. After making these today I'll never use a mix again. Followed the recipe except for using reviewers suggestion to mix sugars half white and half brown. Also, when baking wedding cakes I always use Dutch processed cocoa. It's darker and the chocolate cake comes out with a bit more bittersweet flavor. It worked wonderfully in the brownies. Just awesome brownies, can't wait to make them again!

Aunt Bev's Famous Apple Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2009
This recipe combined with other reviewer suggestions was my best apple pie ever. I've always had problems with soggy, undercooked bottom crusts. When using my pizza stone recently it occurred to me that baking a pie on it might help. I put the stone in when first turning on the oven and used the suggestion of brushing the bottom crust with egg white. Perfect! The other suggestions I incorporated were: Used half white & half brown sugar, reducing both slightly. Brushed the top crust with egg white & sprinkled with cinnamon sugar. Changed the flour to 3 tablespoons flour & 3 tablespoons corn starch. Used 2 teaspoons cinnamon & 3/4 teaspoon nutmeg. The end result was no runny mess, perfectly cooked apples & flaky bottom crust (I use Pillsbury crusts - love them). Can't wait to make this one again.
