Butterfinger Chunkies
I LOVE these cookies and have been making them since 1998! I roll them with my hands and they look perfect after baking, uniform in size and almost like store bought. I also use parchment paper which slides off the baking sheet and they can cool without falling through the rack. I've used various sized Butterfinger candy bars as long as the whole equals about 10-11 oz. Delicious!!

Pineapple Upside-Down Cake VII
Delicious! I used a 12" skillet and it was perfect for the amt of cake batter and made a nice large cake. Followed recipe as directed except I used yellow cake mix and I also put pecans around the middle pineapple ring and along the edge. Pretty. I think 10 minutes was a bit too long to cool before turning out onto serving platter because the pineapple and sugar stuck, and I had to manually put them back on the cake. Next time I'll try maybe 5 minutes. At any rate it still looked pretty and my MIL said it was the best pineapple upside-down cake she's ever eaten. If I do say so myself, it was delicious! Will definitely make again!!!

Amish White Bread
9/16/09 This bread is sooo delicious! I made it exact to the recipe, although I did brush some egg wash over the top (1 egg mixed with 2T water) prior to baking which made a nice shiny crust. It was sweeter than white bread, but still very good. Next time I might experiment with the sugar just for fun, and possibly substitute some wheat flour or even try all-purpose flour. For the 2nd rise I let it rise 45 minutes. I don't know why some reviewers say this bread is dense because I did not think so at all. Maybe they usually eat Wonder bread or something. This is the first bread in years that I've made start to finish totally by hand - I usually use my bread machine, if not for the whole recipe then at least through the first rise. This recipe is SO easy. Thank you! It's definitely going into my collection for our enjoyment for many years to come! - - - - - 11/11/09 I tried this again today with only 1/3 cup sugar and it was a bit less sweet, but just as yummy! I love it both ways. It's delicious made as a sandwich with ham and honey mustard. Next time I'm going to try making it into cinnamon bread. :)
