Eggnog Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2014
I would make this cake again with some alterations. It was way too sweet. I don't believe 2 cups of eggnog are necessary for the filling. I will use 1/2 cup of milk and 1 1/2 cups of eggnog for the filling the next time. I will also use 3/4 cup of sugar for the frosting rather than 1 1/4 cups of sugar. You can always add more sugar to taste to the frosting.

This was great. I added more vanilla to the cheesecake mixture and made fresh toll house cookie dough. They were fantastic!

Fried Apple Pies

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2008
These were very good but of course I changed the recipe. I added more vanilla and some cornstrach to the recipe. I didn't make complete applesauce, I left some apple chunks. I also added nutmeg and allspice. I used the can buscuits but recommend baking rather than frying the pies.

Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins I

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2008
These were good. I used 12oz. of yogurt, but plan to make them again with 8oz. of lemon yogurt. I used butter in place of the oil. Overall, they were moist and tasty.

Red Velvet Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2008
This is great. Although, I did substitute the shortening to 1/4 cup of butter and 1/4 cup of shortening. I also added an additional teaspoon of red food coloring to the chocolate paste. I also used a cream cheese frosting. I used 3 1/2 cups of confectioner sugar, 1/2 cup of butter, 1 tablespoon of milk, 1 pk. of cream cheese and 2 teaspoons of vanilla whipped together. With these changes to the original recipes, I have never had a greater piece of red velvet cake!

Puff Pastry

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2008
This is a great recipe for puff pastry. I agree that the butter can be cut by 6 tablespoons per 2 cups of flour. Also, putting the dough in the freezer for 10-15mins. between turns made the process quicker and easier, esp. if you are cooking in the kitchen which adds for additional heat. Another tip is to put the rolling pin and cutting board in the freezer between turns. Finally I worked the dough on parchment paper so I could just wrap it in the paper and place it in the freezer. This cut the entire process down to about an hour with amazing results.

This recipe tasted rather doughy. My daughter also thought they did not have a lot of taste.

This was a good cake but too sweet for my taste. I will make it again, but reduce the sugar.

Soft, Moist and Gooey Cinnamon Buns

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2008
First this recipe is fantastic! I made it by hand just using a fork. I used the mixing directions for mixer or hand. Those directions forget to mention the salt and instant pudding. I added them to the wet mixture before adding the flour. I used regular yeast (not bread machine yeast) and bread flour. I added a teaspoon of vanilla extract to the mixture. The dough was so nice and manageable. Before taking them out of the oven, I put a little margarine on each right before taking them out of the oven. This made them golden brown. I also added a little extract vanilla and milk to the icing. These were soooo good! I plan to take a batch to my mother's house for christmas morning.

Cindy's Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2008
This recipe is great! I made it for Thanksgiving. My mother is a terrible critic of food prepared by others. Once she tasted a piece of my slice, she had to have her own. I microwaved the ice cream and I didn't have any issues with separation. I used 1 pint of butter pecan and 1/2 pint of vanilla, Haagan Dazs. Try this out and you will not be sorry!
