Ghirardelli Crispy Crunchy Chocolate Chip Cookies
Well, I have to take back my previous review. I stupidly used salt instead of sugar so I had to start over. This time i portioned out 16 balls and flattened them to 3". The sugar allowed the cookies to spread in the oven. I used 325 for the 15 min but added another 4 min. They came out very crispy. Will definitely make again. Maybe I will add a pinch of chili powder.

Raspberry Pain au Chocolat (Raspberry Chocolate Croissants)
I followed the exact recipe with no changes and it was excellent. Looked just like the photo. Everyone raved about them. They were easy and no leftovers!!

Cream Cheese Kolacky
I tried this instead of my yeast recipe. I followed the recipe almost exactly (using Solo filling for the jam) except that I found if they baked longer, they were crispier and the bottoms were cooked and insides more flaky. Regarding complaints about the dough: it comes out the frig very hard and the butter makes it stiff. But if you flatten with your hand and roll it on powdered sugar with a little dusting on top, it will roll out thin enough to cut and lift off the counter. I tried waxed paper, but the dough did not roll as easily as on the powdered sugar. I think I will make this recipe my standard. I made some tiny squares, pinching opposite ends together in the middle. Those were great!
