Apple Crisp II
i liked this recipe and was excited to make it for its crunchy topping. my family thought it was pretty good but could b much better. Some of their complaints included that the topping was too sweet (which i disagreed with)and that the apples could have been better. I sliced th apples too thin however and they would have been better a bit chunkier. The next day though I thought it tasted better cold.

Butter Flaky Pie Crust
This was good. I made this to wrap Apple Dumplings with Rich Cinnamon Sauce. It took longer to prepare this than the recipe said (which I was expecting). The crust didn't turn out to be very falky but it was fine. I really liked the fact that this recipe didn't call for lard or shortening

Apple Dumplings with Rich Cinnamon Sauce
These were amazing! My family absolutely loved them. I used freshly picked apples and instead of buying the container of pie crusts like the recipe calles for, I made the Buttter Flakey Pie Crust and wrapped 5 entire small apples (peeled cored, and cut into 2 halves). I had a little bit of trouble getting the apples wrapped but that was because of my changes and I was able to eventually cover them. A warning though, on two of the dumplings, somehow the pastry must have ripped while bking because whaen I took them out, the filling had spilled out onto the pan. On these two, the apples did not have as much flavor on the inside and were not as good as the others.
