Cream Puffs
I made this for a party. This recipe came out fabulous. I doubled the recipe. I followed the advice of some of the other reviewers: I added the vanilla extract. I piped in chocolate pudding filling and vanilla pudding filling for variety. I also drizzled a chocolate ganache over the puffs - they looked so professional. 1 Tip - my oven is small and I have only one baking tray so I had to do the puffs in shifts - make sure the tray is not hot - otherwise the puffs will fall (flop is a better word). I also made tsp drops of the batter rather than tbsp - so the result was near bite sized portions. I did not have ONE puff left!

Butternut Squash Soup II
This soup was delicious - I used my own chicken soup stock. Instead of butter I used olive oil. Didn't add anything else. Was more a bisque for me but that probably was because I used less stock. I followed one of the other reviewers by baking the butternut squash in the oven first (split in half, scooped out seeds, placed in water on 350 F for an hour) that really helped speed things up.

Aunt Gail's Oatmeal Lace Cookies
These lace cookies came out looking so beautiful. Hint: Be careful! You may think that you don't need the space but once the cookie starts to spread it will go farther than you imagined. The first time I tried it, I had uni-cookie. It will also be soft-ish when you take it out of the oven, but will harden to a lovely texture when it cools. (I substituted half of the white sugar with brown sugar.)
