Three Berry Pie
I made it with frozen strawberries and blueberries, and even though I increased the cornstarch to 1/4 cup it still came out very watery. The filling was also too sweet, maybe it would work with raspberries and blackberries, but the blueberries were too much. The crust was great though (made with butter instead of shortening because that's what I had). I brushed the top with butter and sugar and it came out nice, tender and crisp. I wish I had pre-baked the bottom shell before putting in the fruit, though, because it came out kind of doughy.

Ninety Minute Cinnamon Rolls
Great recipe! I've made a few times and they came out yummy but a bit heavy until this last time, when I used self rising flour instead of all purpose. Magic! They came out fluffy and light. Like other reviewers, I too topped them with a cream cheese icing (1/4 c butter, 1/2 c cream cheese, about 1 c powdered sugar).

Chef John's Peach Cobbler
This was easy to make, delicious and beautifully puffed up. In my oven it was done after about 42min. I had to use canned peaches and pears because that's what I had on hand. The cup of sugar in the batter was a bit too sweet given the sugar in the fruit, so if I use canned fruit again, I'll reduce it to 2/3 cup. The Five-Spice powder was nice but I would have liked a little more spice. Next time I'll add cinnamon and a touch of nutmeg.
