Chinese Restaurant Almond Cookies
I still haven’t found a Chinese almond cookie that tastes quite like the store-bought ones. I’ve also tried the Glazed Almond Cookies By Nancy and Almond Cookies III By Anne. I’m giving this recipe 4 stars because it turned out to be the best of the three. I made them for a bake sale and was asked to make them again for a luncheon. Everyone seemed to enjoy them. The second time around I found the best recipe was combining this recipe and the glazed almond cookies. The cookies I’ve been trying to imitate are very yellow, don’t seem to have spread while baking and had an egg wash. So I put an egg yolk in the mixture and saved the white for glazing. I used butter instead of lard. This may have been what caused them to spread. I’m still looking for the perfect almond cookie recipe.

Chewiest Brownies
This is my favorite brownie recipe on the site. (I’ve made all of the top rated ones several times). It makes some wonderful, chewy brownies with a very powerful chocolaty flavor that I find most recipes lack. It doesn’t always turn out though. The brownie will be very thin no matter what size pan you’re using. Try putting wax paper on the bottom so that the brownie can be lifted out to cool and be cut. In order to avoid a crumbly mixture, stir the coca and sugar together, then add the melted butter and eggs and vanilla, and then the flour and salt. Make sure that you melt the butter. If the mixture still seems too crumbly, it’s possible that your eggs were too small, (I use extra large size eggs) consider adding another egg. The mixture will be very thick. I still have problems with the brownie not settling all the way and the middle square has to be discarded. But I still prefer this recipe underdone to overdone. When they come out of the oven at the prescribed time, do not test the center for doneness, or try to cut them immediately. They will not seem done, but they will settle. (I like to put them in the fridge to settle.) If you cook them to long they will be very dry.

Grandpop's Special Chocolate Cake
This turned out really well. You couldn't taste the coffee, but it had a delicious flavor and moist texture. I didn't think that it would turn out at first. After 25 minutes in the oven it looked like pudding, but I left it for another 10 or 15 and it was perfect.
