Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies III
Very happy with these! Loved the fact they aren't too sweet AND that they are eggless! The first batch didn't spread at all, likely due to the fact that the butter was cold. As the dough warmed in between batches they started to spread. So if you're having trouble with these going flat, simply refrigerate the dough as others have suggested. As a personal preference I subbed nuts for raisins and added only 1 cup of chocolate chips. My husband really liked the fact these weren't super sweet. This recipe is a keeper!

Apple Pie by Grandma Ople
No doubt this is a delicious pie! I didn't have Granny Smith apples on hand so used some fairly nondescript ones that I had. I used 6 apples which worked out just about perfect. Just because I like cinnamon and vanilla and have almost always had apple pies with those flavors I added 1 tsp each - I know, it's a lame reason to change a recipe. However, I must say that if I have good apples on hand next time I'd try the recipe as written. It was a little sweet for my tastes, but I can see how it would be balanced perfectly with the tartness of the Granny Smiths. I tossed the apples with the cinnamon, poured 3/4's of the caramel sauce over the apples, then poured the rest over the lattice. I baked it at the temps noted in the recipe and the crust came out perfectly. Warm, the pie was fairly runny, but after it cooled it set up beautifully. The only other thing I'd say is remember the flavor of this pie is caramel apple. If you prefer tart, or prefer a cleaner apple flavor, keep that in mind before choosing this recipe.

Boiled Bagels
I never knew making bagels could be so much fun and so easy! They've always been a store-bought mystery. They're a little time consuming but worth it. My mom taught me to let the yeast sit with the warm water and sugar for a few minutes, then mix in the dry and remaining ingredients. That's the only real deviation I made from the original recipe. Also, I let the dough rise 10-15 minutes longer both times. The outcome was fabulous! I tried someone else's honey-oat suggestion, and also used a garlic bread spice mixture to coat some others. Delish! I coated them after boiling and before baking. Wonderful recipe! I'm delighted I don't need to buy bagels anymore!
