Thanksgiving Leftover Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2010
I was afraid to make this because everyone said it was too much filling for a 9 inch deep dish, so I had a smaller 8" pie crust standing by. I didn't use it. It's a Longaberger and maybe it's a little deeper than normal. I only modified by adding a tinge more cranberries. I baked it only 30 minutes because I had to leave the house, so the apples were a bit crisper than they should have been, but this was a KEEPER. Everyone loved it and asked to make it a regular.

Cranberry Pecan Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2009
Delicious! The cranberries were tart to balance the sweet, which is what we like. The pie was soft and warm even after one hour. I don't know if it takes longer to cool than others as I haven't done a pecan pie in a few decades. I didn't know if the term "mix" when combining the sugars, eggs, butter, and all, was with a mixer or by hand. I used the mixer until it was blended. I hope I didn't overblend it and that's why it was soft. I'll have to do some research on pecan pies before I bake this again. Hubby said he would like more cranberries, too.

Never Fail Pie Crust II

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2009
I love this recipe. I've used the Betty Crocker recipe for years and recently decided to try this because everyone said it was so easy and good! I don't have a food processor and on a whim decided not to use my cutter. I used my electric beaters to cut the shortening and to blend it all. It's a mess, use a deep bowl, but the pastry pulls easily off the beaters and because it's so easy to work with... it's easy cleanup, too. I cut the recipe in two the second time I tried it and used a whole egg. Barely makes enough for a top and bottom, but I will continue to cut in two because I usually only make one pie at a time.

Mashed Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2011
Never making these before, I wanted to make a small casserole dish. I used three large sweet potatoes/yams and less than half of the OJ, butter, and sugar, smoothering the mix with marshmallows on top. They loved it. I'll save this receipt and make the full amount next time.

Streusel Topped Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2009
I used non-fat milk, frozen blueberries (thawed overnight in the refrigerator), and instead of butter for the struedel, I used Land O'Lakes spreadable butter with canola in it. These were perfect, my substitutions didn't hurt the muffins at all. They were delicious. Only thing I would do different is grease my pan better. I used the spray and a few places stuck, shortening would be better or spray could have been done better!
