Dutch Apple Pie with Oatmeal Streusel

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2012
BEST EVER! This is an AMAZING recipe! I once tried freezing the crust & it made things complicated. I suggest just keeping the dough room temp. Otherwise, the crust cooks strangely...I put tin foil loosely over the crust for the first 10-15 mins to prevent burning. I also add walnuts or pecans to the streusel & it gives it an extra oomph, not that this pie needs it! My apples (always granny smith) are always cooked to perfection but we use an apple peeler that cores, peels & cuts the apple thin & into a round apple ring. Therefore, the apple pieces are thin. We cut them in quarters making the apples a perfect bite size. I don't like chunky apples! It tastes very much like a warm caramel apple with an amazingly delicious streusel topping & we add french vanilla ice cream to top. Everyone LOVES this recipe, I get so many kudos. It's a pie TO DIE FOR!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2012
These were AMAZING! They definitely beat the store bought. I used the paper cup liners and spooned the melted chocolate (which I melted butter in w/ the chocolate) into the tin cups ( about a 1/4 of the way up). Then put into freezer. After I mixed up the peanut butter mixture, I took the chocolate cups out of the freezer & added the P.B. (close to the to the top but not quite). I took the rest of the melted chocolate and poured it on the top (with a small spoon) over all the cups and put in the freezer for about 15-20 minutes. They're great frozen because they pop right out of the cupcake tins! Then you can eat them chilled or wait til they're room temp. Total perfection!

Butter Icing for Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2012
At the advice of another reviewer I substituted the butter with cream cheese in one batch...boy was it totally different and not in a good way. The butter makes the "Butter" Icing creamy and so tasty! At one point I added 1 tablespoon extra of butter and oh my goodness was it soooo creamy and flavorful. I really like how the little bit of extra butter cuts the taste of confectioners' sugar. A taste I don't care much for. I like the sweetness but it has a strange bite I don't like so the butter wipes it out! The kids in my son's 2nd grade class just loved it for their Heart shaped cookies on Valentine's day! They couldn't get enough of the red, pink & purple frosting. Thanks!
