Aunt Teen's Creamy Chocolate Fudge

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2009
I could not pour this into the pan - it was way too thick! I had to press it into the pan. I used less butter like others suggested, but it still was oily on top. The texture isn't what I'd call creamy. It's kind of crumbly. Maybe I shouldn't have used a candy thermometer, because after 5 minutes, it was only at 225 degrees, so I boiled it for an additional minute. It still wasn't up to temperature, but I was afraid to overcook it. Maybe I still did?? I used 1 1/2 cups each milk and semisweet chips and it is incredibly sweet. I should have followed others' suggestions and cut back on the sugar. I tried spreading peanut butter on a piece to see if that would cut back on the sweetness, and it sort of does. Does anyone know if the texture is better at room temperature? By the way, I agree with the other reviewer that said they are more like intense chocolate squares rather than fudge. Not sure if I'll try this again. I also made the creamy peanut butter fudge. I hope that one turns out better.

Award Winning Peaches and Cream Pie

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2009
For me this was just okay. I followed the suggestion to pre-bake the crust, but it still seemed like a big pile of mush. Maybe it would taste better with fresh peaches, but where I live (Guam) you can't get decent peaches. My husband liked it, as well as a friend of mine, but I wasn't that impressed. It wasn't terrible, but not worth the effort I went through to make it. I don't think I'll bother trying it again.

Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cookies III

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2009
I just finished making these cookies and they turned out very well. The cookie itself is chewy and delicious, and that was baking for 8 minutes. Based on the other reviews, I doubled the recipe (both the cookie and the frosting) and had just enough. I used a teaspoon which made the perfect size and a double batch made over 50 sandwiches (I'm not sure of the exact number since my husband ate some!). I tried using a pastry bag for the filling which worked okay until the tip came off. I think it was because my frosting was very thick. I even used extra cream. So I ended up using a knife, which worked fine and was less work than the pastry bag. I'll bring them to work tomorrow so we'll see what my coworkers think! Well after bringing them to work, I'm changing this to 5 stars. Everyone loved them!
