Chewy Sugar Cookies
I did add a 1/2 cup extra flour, and, honestly, it could probably have used a bit more. I put the dough in the freezer for a half-hour before rolling into balls. I also had to bake for 15 minutes in my oven, rather than 10, and then let them sit on the pan for an additional five. With those tweaks, I ended up with about 12 beautiful cookies (and a whole bunch of others that were ugly -- too much butter -- or too well-done or not quite well done enough).

Pumpkin Apple Streusel Muffins
Seriously the best of the pumpkin muffin recipes I've tried. I subbed in half wheat flour and half brown sugar, both of which I think improved an already good recipe. This recipe is practically fool-proof. I chopped the apples in my food processor, to varying sizes. The time on my oven was 35 minutes -- exactly as stated on the recipe. However, my oven seems to run slightly slow, so I would check at 25-30 minutes if you have a fast oven.

Guinness(R) Corned Beef
This really is exceptional. You wouldn't think the brown sugar and beer would go well together, but the combination of sweet and bitter melds extremely well! I do use the spice packet from the brisket. I cut my meat into chunks, then rub all sides of the chunks with brown sugar. I may end up using slightly more than a cup of brown sugar all told. I then add two bottles of beer and braise for four hours. I make the vegetables separately. There isn't enough room in my Dutch oven for them, and I prefer my cabbage cooked differently.
