Angie's Perfect Dinner Rolls

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2013
I made this but I used it to make cinnamon pecan rolls, and they turned out great! The rolls came out fluffy and tender--perfect for cinnamon rolls. It was easy too. I don't think I changed anything in the original recipe. After letting it rise, I kneaded it well and then cut the dough in half. (I put half in the freezer, so we'll see how that turns out later in the week--planning on making doughnuts out of it.) With the remaining half, I rolled it into a rectangle and spread with butter, brown sugar and cinnamon mixture. I rolled it into a log, and sliced it into twelve rolls. Put them in a baking pan with a caramel sauce I made and pecans, and let them rise another 45 minutes or so. They came out amazing!

Unbelievable Rolls

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2013
I proofed my yeast and it was very foamy, and otherwise, followed the directions. The rolls didn't rise much after I rolled them into balls and placed them on the cookie sheet. I let them sit in a warm place but after about 40 minutes, I decided to bake them. They didn't rise really at all in the oven. They wouldn't have been too bad, but they had no flavor other than a mild sweetness. It was an odd taste for a dinner roll. What saved them was I took the remaining dough (I only made a dozen small rolls) and made sticky buns with some of it, and monkey bread with the other part. I let those sit in a warm place for another hour or so, and they rose some more. (maybe the added warm sauce they were in helped?)Anyway, as sticky buns, they were great. The monkey bread was also good, according to my husband. I was too busy eating sticky buns to taste the monkey bread.

Amish White Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2013
I can bake great cookies, but I have always been terrible at baking bread--even when I had a bread machine. It would always come out dense and doughy with a big air bubble at the top. In fact, I haven't even tried for years, but decided to try one more time and I am so thrilled to find a recipe even I can make! I made it exactly like the recipe except that I took other reviewers recommendations to cut back on the sugar. I used about a third of a cup and probably could have gone down to 1/4 cup. (It was still slightly sweet). It baked up light but with a good texture. It was great with just butter on it, but this morning I toasted a few slices and topped with butter and cinnamon. It was fantastic! I can't believe I actually made that loaf of bread.

Shiny Chocolate Glaze

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2013
I made it exactly as the recipe said as I actually had a box of bittersweet chocolate, light corn syrup and butter. So bitter! I'm only giving it two stars instead of one because I was able to fix it to make it palatable. I added about a teaspoon of vanilla, two more tablespoons of corn syrup, and it was still bad. I ended up using about 1 1/2 cup of powdered sugar and couple of more tablespoons of butter. Basically, a whole new recipe. The reason I used the original recipe in the first place was because I didn't have the 3-4 cups of powdered sugar the other recipes on this site called for.

Chewiest Brownies

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2005
The taste was pretty good, but the texture was a bit chalky/gritty. My four year old loved them though. The only thing I did different was to add chopped walnuts. They are also very thin, though that's not a bad thing. Not sure if I'll make them again.

Orange Quick Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2004
I just made a loaf this afternoon and have already eaten two pieces! I made a few changes. I did half dark brown sugar, half white just because I like brown sugar. I also added maybe a 1/2 t. pumpkin pie spice and about the same amount of cinnamon. It smelled great while cooking and even awhile later when I went out of the house and came back, I could still smell it.

The Whole Jar of Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2003
Fantastic peanut taste! I substituted 1 stick of margarine for one stick of butter, but only because didn't have enough butter. I also didn't refrigerate the mix before baking because I simply didn't see that part of the recipe in time. I wondered how you rolled them. LOL. I used a scoop that I normally use for my choc chip cookies. They still came out great, I was even able to criss-cross them. I had been looking for a good pb recipe. This is it!
