Pecan Pie Cookies
Good luck, if you try this! It takes a better cook than I. They sound so tempting, but are a world of work, and then, impossible to get out of the tins without falling apart. Oh, you can eat it - they just won't look pretty. And, if you DO try, make sure to add a pinch of salt!

Moravian Sugar Coffee Cake
I'm from Winston-Salem, too, and grew up with always having Dewey's sugar cake on Christmas morning. I've also worked in Old Salem and am quite familiar with the Moravian sugar cake from the wood-fired bakery there. This recipe is close, but not on the money. First, there is WAY too much cinnamon! I only made this recipe for the first time yesterday, so I don't know if 4 TEASPOONS is what is meant: I tried to follow the recipe, even though my gut told me it was too much cinnamon. Secondly, baking time needed to be more like 30-35 minutes. My oven is accurate. I don't think the Moravians would put so much sugar, but it's good-tasting. I think the dough recipe is close, but the finished product was doughy. Not sure if more cooking would have done it. Also, don't worry about making the holes in the dough too much. It works out, even tho it seems not to. I know the Dewey's version went to using margarine instead of butter, and for sure, not nearly so much cinnamon, but we always add more butter to the store-bought when we heat it up. However, doughy and over-spiced as this turned out, it will get eaten by the husband. Maybe if the finished product gets toasted in a pan, the doughy "cake" part will become less objectionable. My son thinks the store-bought stuff has too much dough, and not enough topping, but this recipe fixes that issue, with the ton of brown sugar and butter. I hope I have time to work on this again. It would be so cool to have the original taste, made at home.

Sausage Balls
I planned to make these exactly as called for, but was down about 1/4 cup baking mix. I've never had sausage balls before, but these were tasty! I baked them on the rack for about 23 minutes, and they are perfect - a little more browned on the bottom than some might like. Crunchy!
