Thumbprint Cookies II

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2009
These cookies were something of a disaster. I feel as though I must have missed something, because the dough was a sticky mess and turned into a drippy one in the oven. I managed to salvage them (somewhat) by recreating the thumbprint with the back of a measuring spoon after about five or six minutes of baking, but they were still a mess. Thumbprint cookies are supposed to be cute, and while these tasted good, cute they were not.

Cheesecake Cookie Cups

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2009
WAY too sweet, not enough flavor. It's a really cute idea, so here's how I altered it: 1) Replace the cookie dough with a pure chocolate dough; if you're doing it homemade, replace the cocoa with dark or dutch to cut the sweetness; 2) replace the condensed milk with the same amount of sour cream; it adds a cheesecake-y bite to the cup; 3) the pie filling is a toss-up; I find canned too sweet/not cherry-y enough, so I replaced it with a homemade pie filling with tart cherries, but there's nothing inherently wrong with using a can. 3 for a good idea with subpar taste.

Best Brownies

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2008
AMAZING. I made these for Thanksgiving and had to make them three times over the weekend because people kept eating them up! They're rich, delicious and fabulous. I've also never made the frosting because I think these are sweet enough as it is.
