Chocolate Chocolate Chip Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2008
I wanted to make chocolate muffins like the ones from Costco, and this was spot-on. I took previous reviewers' suggestions and added sour cream, an extra egg, and extra sugar (but had to use brown instead of white since I didn't have the latter). It turned out moist and yummy, just like the Costco version!

Easy Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2008
Excellent sugar cookie! While making the dough, I worried that it looked more like a pate brisee dough, but it turned out just fine. I experimented with making it round or flattening the bottom for more of a mounded cookie, but they both worked. I rolled the dough in colored sugar, and the cookies were so pretty. I wouldn't use these with cookie cutters, though, since they do crack on top, they're more your classic round sugar cookie.

Banana Spring Rolls

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2007
The best wrappers to use for these are made in the Philippines; they're called lumpia wrappers and you'll find them in the refrigerator/freezer section of a Filipino/Asian grocery store. They need to be thawed before use. If you're really lucky, you'll find the ones that have wax paper between each wrapper, making it easy to separate. Otherwise, you'll have to be patient and try not to rip them as you separate them. Keep moist by placing a wet paper towel on the ones you're not using.

Baked Fresh Cherry Pie

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2005
Just moved to a home with cherry trees in the backyard, so I had buckets of fresh cherries and no idea how to use them. I tried this recipe with and without the tapioca, and got rave reviews with both. Use the tapioca if you like your pie more firm; if not, then it's a little more wet. I didn't have a cherry pitter, so my husband came up with a great, cheap solution after seeing me pitting the cherries with a knife (very tedious, and it halves the cherries which doesn't like as nice as whole cherries in the pie): plastic straws, like the kind you get at any fast food place. Hold the cherry in one hand and gently push the straw throught the top of the cherry until you feel the pit. Gently push the pit through the bottom of the cherry. Do this over a bowl to catch the pits and the juice; put the pitted cherry in another bowl.

Chocolate Mint Pinwheels

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2003
I tried 3 different pinwheel recipes, and this turned out best -- easy dough to work with, before and after refrigeration. I altered the recipe for a holiday cookie by replacing the chocolate and mint with green and red food coloring, and mixing strawberry spreadable fruit into the red dough. The cookies were the prettiest I made, although my husband did say they were kind of bland, even with the strawberry in it.
