Veronica's Apple Pancakes

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2012
These didn't turn out great for me. Granted, I didn't follow the recipe exactly: I substitute coconut oil for butter (due to lack of butter) and added more spice (cinnamon, allspice, and nutmeg). However, it's the texture of these pancakes that are getting the low stars. Despite trying different temperatures to cook at, they were always mushy in the middle and wanted to fall apart. They didn't poof up much either, not at all fluffy. That didn't keep my husband from eating the entire batch though!

Thin Mint Cookies

Reviewed: May 26, 2012
I made adjustments to this recipe and to me they taste JUST like girl scout cookies. I added 3 times the mint, used 1/2 coconut oil and 1/2 butter (to make them a little more healthy), and I added 1/2 tsp baking soda (to counter act the "taste like rocks" comments many people left.) I only cooked them until they were stiff (not hard), I found they would harden up outside of the oven. I used semi-sweet chocolate chips, butter, and added mint to the chocolate as well. I just kind of spread the chocolate over the cookies. I had to use a LOT of butter to get the chocolate runny enough to do anything with (maybe because of the mint I added?) They won't harden, but I would keep them in the freezer anyway. Mine didn't turn our pretty, but oh do they taste good!

Jelly Cookies

Reviewed: May 8, 2012
Good recipe! I made these using 50% coconut oil and %50 oil (instead of butter) and they turned out great! The cracked a lot which I smashed them (I used the bottle cap method another user mentioned), are they supposed to? I don't know... I also tried different fillings, I used Mexican cajeta and Korean citrus tea, both tasted great, but they were too runny and kind of leaked out. It took me several tries to get these just like I wanted them. I suggest making the balls smaller and squishing them super flat so you get more of a cookie-jam-ratio (which is what I was going for!). Also, the jam won't spread much on it's own, so it's best to make the jam look how you want it before popping them in the oven.
