Grandma's Gingersnap Cookies
All I can say is WOW! This is a great recipe! This recipe was many firsts for me: first time making gingersnaps, first time using shortening, first time using molasses (because in all honesty, I hate the taste of molasses itself and so was praying the ginger and cinnamon would be enough to overpower it). I was a little nervous because of all this, but I had been really craving gingersnaps and so gave this one a go. I followed the recipe to a T and they were amazing! I was kind of hoping for a gingersnap cookie that actually, well, "snapped" and was crunchy, but after I tasted the flavor of these, I could really care less! They were excellent with a crunchy outside and chewy middle. I just might have eaten 4 in a row. Just might have. (Hey, at least I made them small, ha ha.) The cinnamon sugar on the outside also really gave these cookies something extra that made them outstanding, so don't skip it! Thanks for sharing this awesome recipe, I'll be making it again and again!

Brown Sugar Banana Bread
A very delicious bread! I made sure to follow the advice of some of the other reviewers so my bread wouldn't sink in the middle. I beat my butter and sugar for a good bit, probably about 7-8 minutes. I also let my egg come up to room temperature before using it and warmed the milk up a bit in the microwave. I only ended up using 3 medium bananas since that was all I had on hand. My bread took 50 minutes to bake instead of 40, but came out perfect on the first try! It had just the amount of banana flavor that I like and was incredibly soft from the brown sugar! The cinnamon was a great compliment to the bananas as well. This is a keeper, thanks!

A to Z Everything-but-the-Kitchen-Sink Chocolate Chip Cookies
Awesome! These cookies are really great and definitely a keeper. I didn't have any mace nor do I ever really use it so I just put in an extra pinch of nutmeg. I also left out the coconut since I'm not a big fan of it. I followed another reviewer's advice and use frosted cornflakes so that they stayed nice and crisp in the cookie dough. These cookies are nice and chewy inside but then have great crunch from all the add-ins. There seemed to be a TON of chocolate chips in this cookie (which made them quite sweet, even for my monster sweet tooth that can usually handle it!) and I usually like a little less so I can also taste the cookie part, so next time I might reduce the chocolate chips a bit and maybe even add more walnuts. Thanks for the recipe!
