Apple Crisp I

Reviewed: May 15, 2013
First note: I doubled this recipe to take to a potluck. That said, I tweaked mine (as I usually do) by adding about 2 tablespoons more sugar and 2 tablespoons more butter, plus less flour by about 1/4 cup and I cheated (lol) by using Quaker instant oatmeal that already had nuts (raisin, date, and walnut flavor, to be exact). By using more butter and less flour, I could 'pat' the topping on to be sure to cover all the apples fully and it baked up perfectly in about 55 mins. I also omitted the maple syrup because I thought the additional sugar (plus whatever flavoring was in the instant oatmeal) would be sufficient. Both dishes I brought were large (15x10 or 12) and were scraped clean in under 90 minutes! And no, there wasn't more than say 25 people (max) at this potluck.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2011
I also used different chocolate chips (Nestle) and omitted the nuts (like the other poster, no unsalted on-hand). Great cookies, didn't miss the nuts and definitely if you're going to add them, make sure they are UNsalted, especially if you add the optional 1/2 tsp. of salt already.
