Gourmet Sweet Potato Classic
I grew up with the marshmallow-topped variety. My husband grew up with plain baked sweet potatoes. I wanted to try something new this year, so we gave this one a whirl. Oh, my goodness! YUMMY! I don't think I will even bother looking further. I baked the sweet potatoes for over an hour until they were very tender. I had read in other reviews that baking brings out the full flavor of the potatoes (rather than boiling or microwaving). It also eliminates the need to peel and chop. Once out of the oven and slightly cooled, simply cut them in half, hold with pot holder and give them a squeeze. The flesh pops out of the skin very easily. I also used milk instead of cream and it was still delicious. That was the only change I made this first time because I did not want to experiment too much for Thanksgiving dinner. Next time, I may try to cut out some more calories/fat by adjusting sugars/butter/etc. The whole family loved them. It was a definte hit. Thank you!

Waffles I
We were out of Bisquick, so I started searching this site and went with this recipe because of the huge number of positive reviews. We had them for dinner tonight and they were really good! (I always hated Bisquick ones - taste like biscuits with syrup...). I used 2 1/2 tbsp white sugar and 2 tsp vanilla. I didn't change anything else, ingredient-wise. I did beat the whites separately and folded them in at the end and we did sprinkle shredded cheddar cheese on half of them (after pouring batter into the waffle iron). My husband grew up with cheddar cheese waffles. We used a Mickey Mouse iron and I got about 15 waffles with this recipe. The whole family wolfed them down! I am going to continue to play around with it and try different flavors, but it is already saved in my box. Thanks.

The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies
If you have ever had a "Cookie Bouquet" or "Cookies By Design" cookies as a gift, these cookies are almost identical to them in taste and texture. I LOVE this recipe. The dough is not too sweet (which I like) because they are the type that most will decorate with icing/glaze/sugar/frosting/sprinkles. The decorating makes them plenty sweet. My husband does not like icing (weird, eh?) but just likes them sprinkled with decor sugars and baked. Those were good, too. I did not change a thing, baked them exactly as written, and made bigger 1/2-inch-thick cross-shaped cookies with a sweet white icing for Easter to deliver to neighbors this weekend. The rest were wrapped and placed in Easter baskets for my family. Delicious! Thank you! It is already written in my family recipe book.
